Global Energy Forum

The Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum is the premiere international gathering of government, industry, and thought leaders to set the energy agenda for the year. Now in its fifth year, the Forum has emerged as the go-to energy conference to discuss the geopolitical and market issues confronting the energy industry in the coming year, develop new partnerships, and demonstrate thought leadership on global energy trends.


Distinguished Leadership Awards

Dubbed as Washington’s “Oscars” for international achievement, the Distinguished Leadership Awards celebrates the highest achieving individuals who have contributed to the Atlantic Council mission of shaping the global future together.

As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.
