Energy Market Shifts and Geopolitical Considerations

The Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center hosted a roundtable discussion with The Honorable Carlos Pascual, IHS Senior Vice President for Global Energy, Atlantic Council Board Director, and former Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs at the US Department of State.

In the last 18 months, the world has witnessed sweeping changes across the global energy landscape. From plunging crude oil prices to the conclusion of the historic Paris Climate agreement, a host of new factors have emerged to influence both global energy markets and the geopolitical considerations of key producers and consumers of energy. Ambassador Pascual joined us to lend his insights on these transformative dynamics and to engage in a robust brainstorming session on the interaction between geopolitical dynamics and energy markets in this volatile era.
