CACI’s current Rumsfeld fellows, young, executive-level professionals, have chosen to present a comprehensive, well-rounded look at energy prospects within their respective countries and regions. Covering first the current energy situation (its political and economic dimensions alike) they will offer an update and insights on future energy developments: what new projects are being planned, what new technologies will be employed, as well as the political and economic implications of each one.
