Workshop on global energy sector, energy investments

The Business Economics Club and the Center for Social Responsibility invites everyone to a workshop entitled “Reframing the Energy Conversation: Profiting from Energy Transitions” at the Telengtan Hall on February 8 (Wednesday) at 1:00 pm. The workshop will examine energy sector, the global energy sector as it continues to face volatility in prices and rapid shifts in energy resource trends.

The speaker will be Dr. Ricardo Barcelona who will talk about how many energy business managers often get overly fixated on concepts like Net Present Value as a criterion for energy investment decisions and capital budgeting in uncertain energy markets. He will introduce the concept of ‘Option-games’ reasoning as a better approach to untangling complex decisions in the uncertain word of energy investments.

Dr. Barcelona has held senior executive roles at Shell Gas & Power, ABN AMRO Rothschild Warburg (now UBS) as well as in various industries in Hong Kong, Taipei, Madrid and London.  Dr. Barcelona obtained his PhD in Management from King’s College, London in the UK and his MBA from the IESE Business School in Spain.
