“Will shale gas find its place in today’s energy mix?”

Many decades ago, Albert Einstein said that ‘Everything is Energy and Energy is everything”. This claim still seems very true as we look at the impact of energy resources on today’s modern society.
According to the latest International Energy Outlook, the world’s energy consumption is projected to increase by 56 percent over the 30 years between 2010 and 2040. The expected energy use is set to rise by 112 percent in developing Asia (led by China and India), by 76 percent in the Middle East and by 85 percent in Africa. This evolution impacts our planet and raises growing concerns on how to deal with issues ranging from energy security and high oil prices to the use of nuclear power, renewables and the impact of CO2 emissions on the environment.
