*The 2021 Global Energy Forum will feature an innovative new element: The Global Energy Agenda. This inaugural body of work to be released around the conference will feature insightful essays from energy leaders across the globe on the most pressing issues facing the industry in the years ahead. Leading partners of the Global Energy Forum bring unique insights and experience to these critically important topics, and their views will be an important component of this volume. The Atlantic Council Global Energy Center will invite select partners to contribute essays to the Global Energy Agenda to complement the views provided by other recognized energy leaders and to bring diverse and dynamic perspectives to the project. To ensure transparency, and to meet the Atlantic Council’s intellectual independence policies, partner contributions will be designated as such within the overall body of work. All partner contributions will be subject to the Atlantic Council’s editorial discretion, guidelines, and review.

This forum in fact provides a very important platform for industry, policy, and academic leaders to engage on key energy issues in a very complex way.
