The Canon Institute for Global Studies (CIGS) hosted a seminar on July 3, 2018 inviting Ms. Jane Nakano, Senior Fellow, the Energy and National Security Program, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). This is the summary of speech and Q&A.



Abstract of the Speech
The U.S. energy system is undergoing a dynamic transition. Oil and gas production continues to increase in the United States, turning the country into a major exporter of these hydrocarbon resources. Also, its electricity sector sees a big shift in fuel mix, pressuring the economics of power generation from coal and nuclear. What do these changes mean against the backdrop of the Trump Administration's energy agenda in its second year? How do they interact with developments in other major policy areas, such as trade and sanctions? Nakano's talk will present a concise update on U.S. energy production and export situation today, and consider key external and internal factors that can affect the future course of U.S. energy and climate policy.
