Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center on Friday, September 8 at 8:00 a.m. (ET) for a series of discussions on US-emerging market clean energy partnerships to be held at the Atlantic Council headquarters in Washington, DC.

Recognizing the importance of working with emerging & developing economies in combating climate change, US companies have the opportunity to forge mutualistic partnerships in emerging markets to accelerate the deployment of clean technologies. These discussions aim to identify how the United States can collaborate with international partners in ten key emerging markets (Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, the Philippines, South Africa, Vietnam), through trade and technological partnerships, to bolster and advance the deployment of technologies critical to meeting the dual imperatives of attaining a net-zero energy system while fostering economic growth. 

Participants will engage in a public panel of experts and private sector representatives to discuss how the US clean technology sector can embrace the opportunity with emerging markets. 

Please join two private roundtable discussions, following a public panel, to unpack on how the United States can support the development and deployment of four critical technologies – carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS); smart grid systems; solar photovoltaic; and offshore wind – in the ten key partner countries to assist in meeting their climate and decarbonization objectives.

For more information on in-person or virtual attendance, please contact Chase Thalheimer at We look forward to your attendance.
