With the new US presidential administration of Donald J. Trump, a newly elected Congress, and the recent transformative developments in the US gas sector, a reassessment of the role of natural gas, energy policies, and impacts on international diplomacy are crucial. The US has the opportunity to play the role of leader in the global gas markets with its newfound energy prowess as an emerging producer of natural gas and LNG exporter. Dr. Agnia Grigas, author of the report, will engage into a conversation on her recommendations for the US administration with Ms. Suedeen Kelly, Chair of Akin Gump’s energy practice and former commissioner with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and Dr. Tim Boersma, Senior Research Scholar at Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy. The conversation will be moderated by Ambassador Richard Morningstar. 

The Energy Diplomacy Initiative (EDI), as part of the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center, aims to drive a global conversation on critical climate and energy security challenges, with the objective to prevent conflict and build bridges through energy ties, provide everyone with access to reliable, affordable, sustainable, and modern energy, and galvanize communities for climate action around more stable, secure, and prosperous world.
