    Duquesne Energy Expert Addresses British Energy Group

    Dr. Kent Moors, professor of political science and scholar in residence with the Duquesne University Institute for Energy and the Environment, addressed European shale gas prospects at the annual Windsor Energy Consultations in the United Kingdom.

    The meetings bring together energy authorities and policy makers from around the world under a charter granted by Queen Elizabeth II, with consultations taking place each March at Windsor Castle outside London. Moors also presented a closed-door briefing on The North American Shale Gas Experience to United Kingdom ministers and ambassadors from 12 countries at the March 2-4 meetings at the castle.

    While abroad, he also addressed Shale Impact on Global Gas Trading Flows before Britain's primary government energy policy institute, the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy, in Dundee, Scotland, and Meeting the Energy Challenge before the Scottish Economics Society in Edinburgh.

    Moors is a resident of Indiana Township.
