Diversity in Energy Initiatives
The Atlantic Council Global Energy Center maintains a strong cohort of Nonresident Fellows and Senior Fellows who serve as subject matter experts on a multitude of topics across the energy system. Our experts provide insight, analysis, and fact-based research to our work in authoring reports, publishing articles, engaging in the media, and participating in public and private events on our behalf.
Energy Advisory Group
The Atlantic Council’s Energy Advisory Group (EAG) comprises a small number of the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center’s highest-level partners and stakeholders. The EAG meets at least twice each year to discuss the GEC’s vision and strategy, and it remains in close contact with the GEC’s founding chairman and director throughout the year to provide guidance on areas of growth, programming, and fundraising. The EAG is chaired by David Goldwyn, former US Department of State special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs.
