Hard Truths and Opportunities: Meeting the World’s Energy Challenge

Speech by Rob Routs, Executive Director Oil Products and Chemicals at Royal Dutch Shell plc., delivered at Cornell University’s 25th Annual Engineering Conference in Ithaca, N.Y., United States (28 March 2008)

In this speech, Rob Routs explains that the challenge for companies like Shell is to develop new and innovative sources of energy, from hard-to-reach oil and gas and ‘unconventionals’ like oil sands, to alternatives and renewables like biomass and wind. At the same time, we need to develop technologies and encourage policies that limit CO2 emissions to manageable levels.
