World Energy Council to Reveal 2017 Issues Monitor

The World Energy Council’s Secretary General, Dr. Christoph Frei, will reveal the results of the 2017 World Energy Issues Monitor at a briefing at the U.S. Energy Association in Washington Thursday April 6 at 10 a.m.

The report assesses the degree of impact and uncertainty around more than 40 key issues in the energy sector in four categories:

  • Macroeconomic risks
  • Geopolitics and Regional Issues
  • Business Environment
  • Energy Innovation and Technologies

It reflects the views of more than 1,200 senior energy company executives and policymakers in more than 90 countries, and it provides critical intelligence for project developers and policymakers. 

Frei will also discuss the findings of the World Energy Trilemma Index, which will reveal how the U.S. ranks among 125 countries on energy security, energy equity, and environmental sustainability. Last year, the U.S. ranked among the top 10 in energy security.
