Led by the Energy Security and Climate Change Program, CSIS explores policies and regulations, commercial frameworks, and technological solutions that determine our energy future while balancing economic, environmental, and security priorities. In collaboration with leaders in industry, government, academia, and nonprofits, the Energy Security and Climate Change Program leads projects, events, and publications to help decision makers understand these challenging dynamics.

    Tax Extensions for Clean Energy, extended

    Tax Extensions for Clean Energy, extended

    John Larsen (RHG) joins Sarah Ladislaw (CSIS) to talk about the Rhodium Group’s analysis of clean energy tax credit extensions in the United States. Not only could tax credits drive down GHG emissions, they are an opportunity to advance clean energy by offering incentives to supply more lower carbon energy options or by providing certainty to emerging clean energy industries. While Congress ultimately did not have a major tax credit deal at the end of 2019 (when we recorded our episode with John), the idea is likely to be revisited again.

    Climate Change and the Australian Bushfires: A Singular Catastrophe or The New Normal?

    Climate Change and the Australian Bushfires: A Singular Catastrophe or The New Normal?

    Australia is being ravaged by the worst bushfires seen in decades. Beginning in 2019, the fires have burnt through 25.5 million acres, the size of Denmark and Belgium combined. At least 27 people are dead, including three volunteer firefighters, and more are missing. Thousands of homes have been destroyed or damaged. Australia’s capital cities are experiencing record air pollution, and smoke has been seen as far away as South America. With the fire summer season extending for another few months, the disaster is expected to continue. The scale of these bushfires is unprecedented anywhere in the world.


    On Monday, January 27th, 5:00-6:30 pm, please join us for a conversation on the impact of these bushfires on regional politics, public opinion, the health of the population, and national economic growth. We will also discuss the cataclysmic scale of the fires and the climate change drivers that have driven the spread of the fires: are they a single natural disaster – a very bad year in a country accustomed to seasonal fires – or evidence of a long-term profound shift?

    This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.

    Climate Change on the Top of the Global Agenda

    Climate Change on the Top of the Global Agenda

    Andrew Schwartz and Sarah Ladislaw talk about how and why climate change has risen as a top priority for global leaders, what this means for the energy sector, and what it means for decision makers across government, civil society and the private sector.

    Deep Decarbonization Pathways

    Deep Decarbonization Pathways

    To stabilize the climate and prevent the most catastrophic effects of climate change, we must reduce global greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by or soon after 2050. This will require a range of strategies and mechanisms including technological innovation, public policy, and private investment. We are pleased to launch the Climate Solutions Series, a year-long initiative which will bring together a wide range of audiences over six sessions to examine global pathways to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in different sectors of the economy.

    The first session will look at various pathways to net-zero emissions, ranging from a significant reduction in fossil fuel consumption and major behavior changes with little reliance on “negative emissions,” to smaller structural changes with a heavy reliance on technologies to reduce carbon from point sources and the atmosphere. The event will feature a presentation on these various pathways, followed by a facilitated discussion featuring perspectives from multiple levels of government.

    This series is made possible by the generous support of JPMorgan Chase & Company.

    The Bridge: Natural Gas in a Redivided Europe

    The Bridge: Natural Gas in a Redivided Europe

    Russian natural gas exports are once again high on the agenda. Russia is completing two new pipelines to Europe, just inaugurated a new gas pipeline to China, and is boosting its presence in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) market. All this is happening as the outlook for gas in Europe is being upended by new supplies and routes, by new rules and regulations, and by an ambitious decarbonization agenda that will reshape the role of gas in the European energy system, and thus the relationship with Russia.

    The Europe-Russia relationship has always had a political and geopolitical dimension, ever since the Soviet Union first supplied gas to Western Europe in the late 1960s. “Yet to boil down the subject of Russian-European gas relations to geopolitics is to miss a large part of the story,” writes Thane Gustafson, a professor of government at Georgetown University and a Senior Director at IHS Markit, in his new book The Bridge: Natural Gas in a Redivided Europe (Harvard University Press, 2020). He continues to say: “The gas revolution in Europe has deep roots, which originated quite independently of Russia, and are only distantly related to geopolitics.”

    Second Annual Ocean Security Forum

    Second Annual Ocean Security Forum

    The Stephenson Ocean Security Project invites you to the second annual CSIS Ocean Security Forum on January 7, 2020. The annual forum highlights how marine resources disputes, exacerbated by climate change and ecosystem collapse, drive instability in key regions of the globe. This year’s event will feature keynotes from U.S. Coast Guard leadership and key members of Congress and will highlight opportunities to improve security and human rights in the global fishing industry. Speakers will explore two themes:

    Opportunities to address human rights violations in the seafood supply chain through U.S. policy, emerging technologies, and corporate accountability.
    Implications of Chinese Belt and Road Initiative port investments on ocean sustainability and on the security and sovereignty of developing coastal states.
