Faced with a growing energy crisis, extreme weather events, and food insecurity, it is more important than ever to mobilize governments, finance, and civil society to combat the devastating effects of climate change and devise solutions for people and the planet.

At COP27, the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center (GEC) engaged in interviews, high-level events, and quick takes with public- and private-sector leaders in Sharm el Sheikh to explore how energy can empower ideas and creative solutions that achieve net-zero ambitions while ensuring energy access for all regions.
