Join expert Jim Krane, Wallace S. Wilson Fellow for Energy Studies, Rice University’s Baker Institute, for this informative lecture. Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest oil exporter and a monarchy that funds its government almost entirely through oil. Climate action and the transition to renewable energy poses an enormous threat to the Saudi economy and political system. How is the kingdom dealing with the energy transition? What opportunities are available for the kingdom to reorient its economy and retain its global influence? What are the risks of failure?
