2012 Energy and Resources Research Review

Political unrest behind the Arab Spring caused outages in oil and gas production throughout parts of the Arab world, which had a carryover effect during 2012. On top of this the shut-down of the Fukushima nuclear reactor and earthquake-related reductions in Japanese coal fired power generation, plus the subsequent closure of additional reactors in Japan and Europe, merged to reduce overall output. A drought in the United States lowering corn yields exacerbated this trend.

These constraints on production of traditional power generation kept the average oil price above $100 per barrel for a majority of the year. The green energy market, no longer the darling of the venture capital community, revived somewhat in response to this, and also to increasing demographic demands.
