Overview

The ongoing energy crisis is a result of different contributors, including lower natural gas production, a reduction in power generation from renewable sources, exceedingly low gas storage, and stagnant investment in liquified natural gas (LNG) production, among other factors.

We are pleased to host a public and on-the-record virtual conversation with experts on the global energy crisis and its potential impact on the Americas. This program will bring together senior policy makers and private business leaders from the region for a forward-looking and insightful discussion on the future of energy markets amid a spike in prices, supply shortages, and the ongoing energy transition.
