CGEP provides independent, balanced, data-driven analysis to help policymakers navigate the complex world of energy — how to provide billions more people with reliable, affordable, secure access to energy supplies, enable more rapid rates of economic growth, and sustain the planet.
To meet this goal, we produce cutting-edge analysis; convene leaders from finance, industry, government, research firms, think tanks, NGOs and academia; and inform these communities and the public about the events, trends, and policy options facing the global community.
