The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a discussion about the relationship between European energy security and Russian foreign policy, and the potential impacts of US natural gas exports on both, a topic that has taken on even greater urgency in light of the current Ukraine crisis. This event also served as the launch of the Center's new report "American Gas to the Rescue? The Impact of US LNG Exports on European Energy Security and Russian Foreign Policy," co-authored by Jason Bordoff, Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy, and Trevor Houser, Partner, Rhodium Group.
The event began with a presentation of the report, after which Rt Hon Edward Davey MP, the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, offered keynote remarks followed by an on-stage discussion. The event concluded with a panel discussion featuring co-authors of the report as well as:
- Timothy Frye, Director, Harriman Institute and Marshall D. Shulman Professor of Post-Soviet Foreign Policy, Columbia University
- Teddy Kott, Head of Global Gas Analysis, EDF Trading
- Amb. Carlos Pascual, Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy and former Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs, U.S. State Department
The panel discussion was moderated by Ed Crooks of the Financial Times.
