The annual Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum convenes the world’s top energy and foreign policy decision makers to set the global energy agenda for the year ahead and examine the longer-term geopolitical and geo-economic implications of the changing energy system.

The Global Energy Forum at COP28 took place at a time of rapid transformation of the global energy landscape and enabled a diverse community of industry executives, policymakers, and thought leaders to come together. This year’s Forum featured an in person and virtual audience at the COP28 Green Zone Connect Conference Center (December 5) and the St. Regis Dubai, The Palm (December 7).
