Energy Security in a Time of Conflict

Energy Security in a Time of Conflict

In-person, Members-only Briefing

Thursday, February 29, 2024 | 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM ET

Crises around the world have heightened interest in energy security. The ongoing flashpoint in the Red Sea has affected international shipping and the energy trade. Russia has attempted to exploit Europe’s reliance on it for natural gas, and increasing opposition to traditional power sources has prompted many countries to reconsider how they get their energy. How does fighting along major shipping routes affect global trade? What steps are nations taking to enforce energy sovereignty? How does conflict impact the energy transition? Join us on Thursday, February 29th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM for a conversation with Ms. Amy Myers Jaffe, Director of the Energy, Climate Justice and Sustainability Lab at New York University’s School of Professional Studies.
