IEA: Global oil supply will 'peak in 2020' PDF Print E-mail

UK Industry report on Peak Oil PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 30 October 2008

The UK Industry Taskforce on Peak Oil and Energy Security (ITPOES) is a group of British companies, variously concerned that threats to energy security are not receiving the attention they merit. The aim of this, their first report, is to engage government more proactively on the peak oil threat, and also to alert the public to the problem. They aim to encourage collaborative contingency planning by government, industry, and communities on measures that can be taken to accelerate independent energy supply within the UK.
