Dr. Yergin was awarded the United States Energy Award for “lifelong achievements in energy and the promotion of international understanding.” The International Association for Energy Economics gave Dr. Yergin its 2012 award for “outstanding contributions to the profession of energy economics and to its literature.”

Dr. Yergin is a director of the Council on Foreign Relations and a trustee of the Brookings Institution.

Speaking Topics

  • The New Energy Future in the New World Economy?

    How will the world change? Daniel Yergin draws on innovative, original scenarios to explore how great changes in international politics, global economy, technology and the environment will shape our future. What will it mean for world energy and political power if Asia overtakes North America to become the biggest part of the world economy? Could oil lose its monopoly position in fueling our cars? What would that mean for world politics? What happens if globalization falters, leading to a disappointing economic future, and a global fissure? Yergin dynamically addresses the trends that will shape the world and drive us into the future, outlines the conflicting choices and visions for the world economy and addresses what the great battle over globalization is all about. He also identifies key risks and opportunities, and describes the path to a better, safer world where the interests of competitive nations can come togetherand the encouraging signposts along the way.

  • Oil, Power & Money: The Age of Energy Insecurity

    The great struggles over oil and energyparticularly how they interact with geopolitics and the future of societyare of a growing concern to everyone. Indeed, anxiety about energy is practically a part of daily life, prompting numerous questions about our energy future: What are the risks of conflict over energy resources and a new energy crises. What will be the impact of high prices on the global economyand on our own lives? Is the world really running out of oil? Will wind, ethanol and other renewable resources fill the gap? How will the energy needs of a growing world match up with rising concerns about carbon and climate change? Daniel Yergin is uniquely qualified to tackle these critical questions. He combines in-depth thought and analysis and up-to-the-minute insight with the clarity and personal energy of a great communicator.

  • Globalization and the New Geopolitics

    Todays eraThe Second Age of Globalizationis proving much more challenging than was thought a few years ago. Balances of power have been constantly shifting, resulting in new alliances. The U.S., China and Russia are taking on new roles in this shifting geopolitical world, as the entire world now deals with the consequences of the war on terrorism. The technological forces shaping our future have led to critical debates about what it means to live in the "24-hour interconnected, hyperactive, e-mail-fueled, and sleep-deprived world." Meanwhile, a backlash continues to build against a world open to trade, investment, and communications, with energy as one of the most important forces changing the position of nations. Russiaflat on its back only a few years agois now an energy superpower. China and India are the rising great powers. And worries about energy security are now a political fact in the United States and Europe, amplified by climate change. Daniel Yergin takes on the question of overriding importancehow todays positive global economic developments will interact with the negative and worrying geopolitical trends that are emerging out of the new geopolitics.
