    Building New Supply Chains Required for Net Zero

    Energy Infrastructure/Supply Chains

    Meeting the world’s ambitious net-zero goals will require establishing new and robust supply lines for the minerals, materials and fuels needed for the energy transition. These supply chains will be built in a new era of economic competition between major powers that see securing the clean energy industries of the future as a national priority. Are these supply chains being built and expanded fast enough to meet the needs of the energy transition? How are companies responding to government efforts to bring their supply chains closer to home? Where is more investment and effort needed most?

    Spotlight | U.S. Energy Policy in an Election Year

    Policy & Regulatory

    The 2024 US election campaign is ramping up and the stakes are high for the energy sector ahead of November’s vote. The Biden administration has passed the U.S.’ most ambitious climate legislation and overseen strong growth in U.S. oil production and LNG exports. But it has also taken steps that could curtail future growth by restricting licensing and putting future LNG exports projects under review. What is the outlook for energy policy and politics in Washington in an election year—and after?

    Luncheon & Dialogue | The Multidimensional Energy Transition: A world of choices

    Energy Transition

    Pushing for a single, global energy transition path is unrealistic and could derail efforts to reach net-zero emissions. Energy security and affordability come to the fore when lives and livelihoods are at stake. The huge gap between per capita incomes in developed and developing nations leads to different ranking of priorities. What are the paths for energy transition that also support economic growth and global prosperity in different regions and different sectors? How can digital technology and AI advance the transition and help bridge the gaps?
