Access to oil and gas has long held an influence over the politics of individual nations and their relations with others. But as more countries move toward sustainable energy, and supply chain shortages affect the availability of oil and gas, how will these changes in energy industries impact geopolitics?
Join us for a timely discussion of this topic with Sarah Emerson, founder and president of Energy Security Analysis, Inc (ESAI). The program will feature expert remarks from Ms. Emerson, live audience Q&A, and time for networking and discussion with other globally-oriented participants. To celebrate the end of our 2023 programming, we will host a special reception with light refreshments in the Newsfeed Café from 7:00-7:30 PM.
This program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required.
