In 2008 the Forum asked “How Will Supply Meet Demand?” with growing concern about the world’s ability to meet projected demand growth for oil and natural gas in a secure, lower carbon way, a diverse group of experts explored questions of global and U.S. supply and demand, the prospects of alternative transportation fuels, the economic impacts of high energy prices, and the challenges of improving energy security. The Forum was chaired by John Deutch, Institute Professor at MIT and former Undersecretary of Energy, Deputy Secretary of Defense and Director of Central Intelligence.
