This webinar describes the sophisticated global setting where energy security, national security, and geopolitics intersect. People everywhere want abundant, reliable, clean, and affordable energy. Nation-states have a geopolitical identity and geopolitical aspirations for influence. Energy security is an essential factor in those aspirations. Nation-states can influence developments beyond their borders regarding access to, processing, and transportation of natural resources, such as carbon-based energy and minerals essential for renewable energy development.
This webinar addresses the relationship between energy security/homeland security and unhindered access to energy supplied from domestic or foreign sources, the role of energy transportation at competitive world prices, and the relationship between local and international energy infrastructure.
