Maria Van der Hoeven, Executive Director, International Energy Agency (IEA)

How to satisfy the world's growing thirst for energy, while also mitigating the effects of global warming?

For more on this forecast, Markus Karlsson talks to Maria Van der Hoeven, the Executive Director of the Paris-based International Energy Agency.
