Energy Security Program

Energy Security Program

Energy security program

With rapid changes in energy demand and consumption patterns in the Indo-Pacific region, concerns over security of supply are a growing issue for national governments. Policy responses are broadly described as measures to improve “energy security”. Attempts to enhance energy security influence geopolitics, accentuate existing tensions and could even provoke conflict. Directed by Andrew Pickford, the Energy Security program brings together energy sector leaders from across the region for a series of roundtables with the aim to better understand the tensions between market and security concerns and creates a forum for in-depth policy discussions on this capricious issue.
