The Future of Energy

A Webcast Series Presented by the University of Oklahoma Energy Institute
Providing balanced perspectives on energy in a world of constant change

Hunt Energy CEO Hunter Hunt of Dallas discusses the growth of renewable energy and what that means for hydrocarbons. His message comes at a time when many people are talking about the upcoming “energy transition,” a move away from a world dominated by molecules — oil and natural gas — to one dominated by electrons. Hunt said he thinks of this more as an “energy addition” rather than an “energy transition."
