Enhancing US-Japan cooperation on clean energy technologies

Japan’s pledge to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 presents an opportunity to expand the robust US-Japan energy partnership into additional clean energy areas. But with a stark divide on energy policy in the United States, how can the US-Japan energy partnership appeal to disparate visions of the energy transition and is politically durable? In the wake of Japan's net-zero announcement, the Global Energy Center is launching this new report, "Enhancing US-Japan Cooperation on Clean Energy Technologies," which explores how the US and Japan can increase the politically durable foundation for clean energy cooperation to their already robust energy partnership.

Eastern Europe remains an opportunity for US exports and cooperation

While the road to greater European energy independence from Russia is long, it leads through Eastern Europe. Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Belarus are eager for energy autonomy, and the United States has the capacity to meet Eastern European energy demand while expanding American LNG and nuclear energy markets.

Artificial intelligence can protect all companies in the energy transition from cyberattacks

The operational and information technologies responsible for running energy systems today were never engineered to be secured in a digital environment, posing a technical challenge tough to solve and difficult for small and mid-sized operators to afford. New developments in artificial intelligence-based solutions can help all energy companies put defenders ahead of attackers, while adapting to the changing energy landscape.

The surprise debate topic: Climate change

Chris Wallace unexpectedly deviated from his agenda to ask pointed questions about the science and economics behind each candidate’s respective climate plans, reflecting a recognition that, more so than in 2016, public pressure is forcing climate action to be a central issue in this year’s election.

The global climate crisis and the clean energy transition in the Asia-Pacific region: Implications for the next US administration

Even with major emissions reductions in the United States and EU, the world has little chance of achieving global net-zero emissions by 2070, much less 2050, without significant changes to the Asia-Pacific energy mix. The next US administration should pursue a well-funded “whole of government” presidential initiative to work with Asia-Pacific countries on viable clean energy strategies and projects within a revived US multilateral trade, aid, and investment approach.

Scaling CCUS: Catalyzing policy and financial innovation

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) is critical to decarbonizing heavy industry and meeting global climate goals. But significant roadblocks to financing have prevented the ability of industry to scale up CCUS projects. New financing tools and a coordinated approach by policy makers, industry representatives, and financial institutions can help CCUS drive the energy transition.
