Europe has been striving to achieve diversification of gas supplies for its growing energy needs. The process has never been a smooth one, largely due to the internal fragmentation, market pressures, and efforts by powerful external actors to affect individual member states of the EU. Recent developments in the global energy sector (LNG, rise/resilience of unconventional production, decline in oil prices, the changing political geography of supply and demand) and geopolitics (Ukraine conflict, Russia’s assertiveness, growing engagement of Iranian energy sector, progress towards the EU’s Energy Union, evolving crises in the Middle East and knock on effects for Europe, etc.) are driving transformation at the sectoral, national, regional, and commercial levels.
Keynote Speaker His Excellency Elin Suleymanov, Ambassador of Azerbaijan to the United States, as well as panelists Bud Coote, a Senior Fellow at the Global Energy Center, and Jay Thompson, Manager of International Government Affairs at Chevron, to discuss these prominent issues. In addition, the panel will be joined by Adam Stulberg, Professor at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and Co-Director of CISTP, and Alasdair Young, Professor at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs and Co-Director of CETS.
Hosted by Join the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy (CISTP), the Center for European and Transatlantic Studies (CETS), and the Georgia Tech Energy Club.
