U.S. Responses to the Global Energy Crisis
Increasing Energy Security, Decreasing Emissions
Global energy markets are facing mounting challenges in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Demand is shifting and growing, supply chains are still vulnerable, and higher energy prices are increasingly problematic for leaders and the climate.
Please join the CSIS Energy Security & Climate Change Program for a discussion on actions the United States can take to improve energy security and create better climate outcomes. Melanie Nakagawa, special assistant to the president and senior director for climate and energy at the National Security Council, will provide an overview on the Administration's approach to recent measures to improve energy security in the United States and Europe without losing progress on climate targets.
Following these remarks, Nikos Tsafos, CSIS James R. Schlesinger Chair for Energy and Geopolitics, will outline several key proposals for energy security, followed by a panel discussion with John Larsen (Rhodium Group, CSIS) and Sarah Ladislaw (RMI, CSIS).
Panelists will discuss how the United States can (1) help Europe secure energy supplies in the short term, (2) increase energy security for itself and allies in the medium term, and (3) decrease (or not increase) greenhouse gas emissions in the long term.
