Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, the Embassy of Iceland, and Green by Iceland, in-person or virtually on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 for the US-Iceland Clean Energy Summit at the House of Sweden.

The Summit will convene high-level leaders from the US and Icelandic government, businesses, and civil society groups to discuss recent advancements in the energy transition; strengthen the US-Iceland climate dialogue around security implications of the climate crisis; and highlight Icelandic clean energy innovations and collaborative opportunities. During this summit, experts will discuss opportunities and challenges to deploying and scaling advanced technologies including geothermal, carbon capture utilization and storage, and transmission. Speakers will highlight opportunities and challenges to accelerate public and private partnerships to advance the energy transition and achieve today’s ambitious climate goals. 

Against the backdrop of today’s geopolitical challenges, greater ambition is needed to rapidly decarbonize the energy system while ensuring energy security. Given Iceland’s achievement in being the world’s largest green energy producer per capita and a leader in harnessing renewable energy for more than a century, there are many lessons learned that can be shared to mutually benefit today’s global energy security and climate change challenges. 

The Atlantic Council follows CDC guidelines in addition to extra precautions to protect its staff and guests. All visitors to the House of Sweden must provide proof of vaccination prior to entering the building.
