Energy Security Program


NBR’s Energy Security Program convenes senior policy and industry leaders and Asia energy specialists to engage in high-level discussions of Asia’s energy policies and their implications for geopolitics. Experts share insights and recommendations through a number of channels, including an invitation-only workshop, NBR’s annual Energy Security Report, and a public fall launch.
