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.
The 2016 Energy Security Program, "'Oil and Gas for Asia' Revisited: Asia's Energy Security amid Global Market Change," examines major shifts in global oil and LNG markets, the implications for Asia’s future energy security and geopolitical uncertainties, and recommendations for strengthening energy and environmental policymaking across the Asia-Pacific. The 2016 program convened a high-level workshop co-hosted by the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on July 8 and an expert panel on "The Next Phase of the Asia-Pacific's Energy Revolution" on December 14.
