Wilson Center – Energy Technology Innovation and Japan-U.S. Decarbonization Cooperation
The geopolitics of energy security have taken on greater urgency in recent months following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. At the same time, the longer-term need to diversify energy resources and develop clean energy technologies has only intensified, given growing evidence of the destruction caused by climate change. Both Japan and the United States have invested heavily in energy innovation to meet their domestic needs, and both countries are looking to work more closely together to ensure sustainability and decarbonization beyond their own borders. Join us for a discussion on the challenges and opportunities of balancing the need for growth and sustainability, and prospects for cooperation between Tokyo and Washington in developing new energy technology in the Indo-Pacific.
