In an era of relative energy abundance for the US, the report—authored by Ambassador Carlos Pascual, CGEP Fellow and former Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs, US Department of State—provides a framework to understand the relationships between energy geopolitics and energy markets as well as a new analytic foundation for governments and the private sector to assess how investment decisions and government policy will influence national security, economic growth and environmental sustainability.

After his remarks, Ed Crooks, US Industry and Energy Editor at the Financial Times, will moderate a panel discussion featuring:
