2018 Pacific Energy Summit

An Indo-Pacific Vision for Energy and Environmental Security


On November 14 the National Bureau of Asian Research held its invitation-only 2018 Pacific Energy Summit in Washington, D.C.

Over the next two decades, the Indo-Pacific will account for two-thirds of global energy demand growth, and by 2035 it will account for one-half of total global energy consumption. Not only will the region be the largest importer of energy, but it, unfortunately, will also be the largest source of carbon emissions and have some of the most dangerous levels of air pollution. The 2018 Summit will explore these challenges and the implications for policymakers under the theme “An Indo-Pacific Vision for Energy and Environmental Security.”

Throughout the program, top leaders from government, industry, and research engaged in a frank, interactive discussion alongside an expert-level audience. The goal of the Summit is to advance innovative solutions to the challenges of meeting rising energy demand while shifting toward a cleaner energy mix, all in the context of an increasingly complex and competitive regional strategic environment.

Featured speakers included:
