Energy Security Program
NBR would like to thank our sponsors:
Dramatic developments are taking place in Asian energy markets with critical geopolitical, economic, and environmental implications. Energy demand is rising relentlessly across Asia, leading to increasing dependence on energy imports and a growing sense of energy insecurity among the major Asian powers.
The United States has a major stake in preventing competition over energy and commodities from fueling regional strategic distrust or increasing market volatility.
To address these issues, NBR’s Energy Security Program convenes senior policy and industry leaders and Asia energy specialists to engage in high-level discussions of Asia’s energy policies and their implications for geopolitics. Experts share insights and recommendations through a number of channels, including an invitation-only spring workshop, NBR’s annual Energy Security Report, and a public fall launch.
In 2015 the Program examined the key energy and environmental security challenges facing Indonesia and explored strategies for promoting greater access to energy while stimulating sustainable sector investment. The Program held a high-level workshop on July 23 and featured a Capitol Hill launch for this year’s Energy Security Report on December 1, 2015. Both events were co-hosted by the US-ASEAN Business Council. Learn more.
