Russia’s war in Ukraine has caused a great deal of turmoil in global energy markets and forced a conversation on energy security. The geopolitics of energy has been shaken to its foundation as nations reconsider their energy sources and future energy partners, as well as the risks associated with relying on oil and gas from petrostates. These developments are having a hugely disruptive effect on global markets. Please join us on Tuesday, July 19 as we discuss the implications of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on global energy security, the climate agenda, and global energy markets.
