How regions with high energy costs contend with the multiple challenge of increasing energy security, reducing energy costs and making progress on decarbonization, will be discussed at this event.

The US shale revolution continues to redefine the global energy map and is said to strengthen the competitiveness of US industry. At the same time Europe and Japan continue to experience rising energy costs, with implications for economic competitiveness and potentially long-term growth.

Understanding the impact of energy costs on economic competitiveness is critical to developing sound policies, directing investment and delivering secure, sustainable and affordable energy. Policy-makers must confront complex forces and balance competing priorities.

This conference addresses crucial questions, including:

* What role do energy-intensive industries play in driving economic growth?
* How will energy security fears shape geopolitical developments?
* What are the barriers to energy supply diversification in regions with high energy costs?
* How can energy policies address climate concerns without risking competitiveness?
* How, and at what cost, can greater energy security and sustainability be achieved?
