    Energy Insecurity: Recalibrating for Energy Generation in a Brave New World

    Just as a long-term pivot toward decarbonizing global energy systems began to take hold, a new concern entered the picture: ensuring energy security in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Economic sanctions and an unwillingness to support or be vulnerable to Russia have the West, particularly Europe, scrambling to diversify their sources of oil and gas, reduce their vulnerability to supply shocks, and build new infrastructure. At the same time, pandemic-delayed energy projects are returning to life. How will these very different forces affect energy investment, the drive to decarbonize, the engineering, procurement, and construction companies who build the related projects, and the project logistics service providers who move cargo for them? This session will examine the interrelated forces acting on the post-pandemic energy supply chain.
