    The EastMed Gas Forum (EGF) and the Abraham Accords have made energy cooperation between Israel and the Arab world a reality. With UAE joining the EGF, the Gulf joins the Mediterranean to chart the future of regional gas potential. The Abraham Accords have created a bridge to share clean technologies from batteries to autonomous vehicles. How will these new foundations for cooperation shape the energy future of the Middle East? Will new realities on energy cooperation also reshape regional politics?
