An Emerging Energy Alliance: Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean
Experts from Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean will discuss opportunities to meet European energy needs with supplies from the Western Hemisphere.
Please join the Council of the Americas and the Bertelsmann Foundation for a Zoom discussion on the emerging opportunities to meet urgent and projected European energy needs with supplies from Latin America and the Caribbean. This all-virtual, joint public program will feature experts from Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean offering views on the potential for partnership and how it might emerge.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has exposed Europe’s acute reliance on Russia for energy. As the Northern Hemisphere prepares for winter, diversification is required. Beyond the United States and Canada, what is the role of the Western Hemisphere in addressing European requirements? What could it aspire to be? With ample conventional reserves as well as a significant endowment of cleaner energy resources, Latin American and the Caribbean can become a critical part of the longer-term solution. The question becomes: what is required for partnership to become reality?
Please join us for what promises to be a timely, actionable conversation.
