On Wednesday, September 21, 2022, the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, the Embassy of Iceland, and Green by Iceland, hosted the US-Iceland Clean Energy Summit at the House of Sweden.

The Summit convened transatlantic government leaders, businesses, and civil society groups to discuss opportunities to strengthen international cooperation to achieve climate goals. The Summit built upon recent advancements in clean energy, including geothermal and carbon capture utilization and storage, and highlight technological solutions to accelerate the energy transition. Speakers highlighted 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.
