Atlantic Council – Looking Forward: What’s Next after the EU-US Energy Council Meeting?

Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center and E3G, virtually on Wednesday, February 9, from 8:00 am – 9:00 am ET for a discussion on the outcomes of the EU-US Energy Council meeting to be held on February 7.

In this discussion, experts will break down key takeaways of the event and discuss their implications looking forward in light of shared security and climate objectives. There is much interest in energy diplomacy given the current energy price crisis and ongoing situation in Ukraine. Discussion around increased energy prices, alternative gas supplies and the role of US LNG will undoubtedly be main areas of focus at this year’s council. But an important question worthy of discussion is whether the current perceived threats to European energy security will hamper or retard the imperative of moving to a path of more rapid decarbonization. Can the two sides develop and continue a transatlantic energy diplomacy that in parallel increases energy security, reduces energy demand, and rapidly advance green technology, at home and abroad?
