Global Energy Policy Under Trump - February 2017

Global energy markets face a pivotal moment with the change of leadership in Washington on January 20. President Trump has promised to make significant policy changes and reduce red tape and regulation to further unleash America’s potential to produce cheap energy. This will have widespread repercussions for energy-producing and energy-consuming countries, including Australia. We all need to understand what is coming, and to make sense of the sometimes contradictory declarations Mr. Trump and his team have written, said, and Tweeted on the way to the White House.  What happens next in this critical part of the global economy will affect every business in every country, and the topic deserves our keen attention. EPIA and AmCham were pleased to offer a true Washington Energy Policy Insider, visiting Australia just weeks after the new administration entered office.

The Energy Policy Institute teamed up with The American Chamber of Commerce in Australia to bring Barry Worthington, Executive Director of the United States Energy Association to speak at several luncheons in February - Sydney on 21st, Melbourne on 22nd and Brisbane on 23rd.

Barry K. Worthington has been the Executive Director of the United States Energy Association (USEA) since 1988. USEA is a bipartisan advisory organisation that represents 150 members across the U.S. energy sector, from the largest Fortune 500 companies to small energy consulting firms. USEA is also the U.S Member the World Energy Council, the UN-accredited global energy body that advises global energy leaders and countries on energy resource management. USEA’s team of international energy specialists work with the federal government, energy companies, and energy ministers to build out energy infrastructure in developing countries.
