Description

"Growth, energy & climate: overcoming the squaring of the circle"

Our distinguished speaker: Mr. Philippe Charlez is Mining Engineer from Ecole Polytechnique de Mons (Belgium) and PHD from Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris. He has been working for 35 years for a major oil company. After being Rock Mechanics Expert, he then occupied several operational positions in Scotland, Angola and Kazakhstan. He is currently Senior Technical Advisor specialist of Unconventional Resources. He is the author of more than 70 scientific papers. He just published in October 2017 with Ed. Deboek Supérieur “Croissance, énergie, climat. La quadrature du cercle ».

Abstract: By transforming “fire” into mechanical energy and then into electricity human being discovered, at the beginning of the XIXth century, the society of growth. However, if technology is the endogenous catalyst of economic growth, energy appears as its exogenous food. Economic growth is fed by energy and more particularly by fossil fuels, which in 2017 represent more than 80% of the energy mix. But through this consumption, economic growth is also a hazardous process that emits anthropogenic CO2, the main cause of climate change.

The examples of electricity generation and transport will be developed in order to illustrate this challenge and understand the implications of the energy transition.


Our moderator: Dr. Philippe Sébille-Lopez, Vice-President SPRE France.

The event is a SPRECGEMP Université Paris-Dauphine partnership.
