The EU contributed to its own energy crisis, but diversification can solve it

EnergySource by Ellen Wald

The EU's energy policies are partly responsible for the impact soaring gas prices are having across the bloc. But the EU still has an opportunity to readjust, find a way out of this crisis, and prevent future ones.

It’s time to refresh the Caribbean Energy Security Initiative

EnergySource by David L. Goldwyn

A renewed commitment to intergovernmental energy governance could be transformative to the viability of the energy transition in the Caribbean. And plenty of precedent—including a previous system in the region itself—makes that prospect more than just wishful thinking.

Following COP26, cybersecurity must be a central piece of the energy transition

EnergySource by Leo Simonovich

The backbone of advanced energy systems is increasingly digital. That means that cybersecurity is essential to a secure energy transition. Private and public sector leaders should work to ensure its hardiness.

Silence is assent: A path forward in US-Mexico energy and climate relations

EnergySource by David L. Goldwyn, Neil Robert Brown

Mexico's recent climate and energy measures will cause economic harm, set back emissions reduction efforts, and strain the country's relationship with the US. The Biden administration must be clear that these nationalistic policies, which contravene the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, will not be tolerated.

Nuclear power and the energy transition in non-OECD countries

EnergySource by Robert F. Ichord, Jr.

In non-OECD countries, nuclear power's role in immediate emissions reductions appears to be minimal, due to long lead times and other mitigating factors. But after 2030, rapid innovation could mean that nuclear energy will have a much more important part to play. OECD countries should partner with non-OECD countries to lay the groundwork now.

The VTR will play a key role in the nuclear energy innovation ecosystem

EnergySource by Suzanne Baker, Jennifer T. Gordon, Judi Greenwald, and Jackie Toth

Next-generation nuclear technologies hold the potential to bring US-led zero-carbon energy to international markets. But their development will be stymied without government support for the Versatile Test Reactor (VTR), whose budget was recently zeroed out. Congress still has opportunities to provide sufficient funding, and it must act on them.

India is key to US climate ambitions, and the Quad can help

EnergySource by Reed Blakemore, David W. Yellen

India's massive demand for energy is projected to grow rapidly over the next several decades, and its current coal reliance will be difficult to break. But doing so is vital, both to global decarbonization and US geopolitical interests. The Quad can help provide the requisite security, investment, and support to help India undertake this challenge.
