The Western Hemisphere has long been home to some of the world’s largest and most abundant energy resources. More recently, the region’s important renewable potential and critical minerals have also emerged as part of the energy equation for the hemisphere and beyond.
In early March, the Atlantic Council, in collaboration with the United States Department of Energy, released a report that set forth a series of steps to create a revised approach to inform the energy outlook for the hemisphere. Indeed, as Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette wrote in the foreword to the report he has “a strong appreciation for the strategic importance of the Western Hemisphere to US prosperity, energy, and national security. As our closest neighbors and strongest trading partners, the energy and economic security of the hemisphere is critically linked to our own.”
The report sets forth a wide range of tools and steps to enact a new strategy; one that is long on cooperation and uniting the region’s policymakers. Perhaps most important are recommendations that seek to enhance energy policy cooperation across four major areas: 1) Energy Governance; 2) Supporting Access to Diverse Fuel Sources; 3) Modernization and Advanced Technologies; 4) Finance and Private Sector Engagement.
Join us for a webinar with David Goldwyn, Chairman of the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center’s Energy Advisory Group and Randolph Bell, Director and Richard Morningstar Chair for Global Energy Security at the Atlantic Council. They will share details from the report and further insights on next steps and implementation strategies for energy policy engagement in the hemisphere.
The webinar will be held Thursday, March 19 at 11:00am San Diego (1:00 pm Houston; 2:00 pm Washington, DC; GMT/UTC – 8 hours). The webinar will include a live Q&A session with the audience.
