To discuss what might come out of the Ministerial Meeting, as well as how IEA members can ensure that the Agency is most effective in responding to continuing changes in the global energy landscape going forward, host Bill Loveless speaks with CGEP Fellow and Senior Adjunct Research Scholar, Jonathan Elkind. Jon was previously Assistant Secretary for International Affairs at the U.S. Department of Energy where he worked on international energy and climate issues within the Obama Administration and with global partners.
Among many topics Jon and Bill discuss, several include: how the Trump Administration’s “America First” philosophy fits into the IEA mandate; whether IEA membership will extend to non-OECD countries in the future; and the role of oil and alternative energy resources in global energy security today.
This week host Bill Loveless talks with Timur Gül, head of the Energy Technology Policy Division at the International Energy Agency and leads the Energy Technology Perspectives report.
A major military engagement could occur in the Asia-Pacific region in the form of a possible conflict between the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan.
