Session I: The transatlantic partnership and pathways to a sustainable energy future

Canada is a stable, open and growing supplier of energy in a resource-constrained world, presenting significant commercial opportunities to investors. The UK and Europe are leaders in advanced technologies and combating climate change. The two sides have formed an axis in a world were a majority of oil and gas reserves are controlled by state energy companies. In this environment, investors value assets that are in robust markets that provide regulatory certainty, access to capital, visibility and investor confidence. Panelists will highlight important developments in the energy sector; notably, with the evolution of investment and trade in the transatlantic relationship, including emerging market and public policy developments, including the EU Fuel Quality Directive.

Discussions will cover areas of growth in energy markets, including how firms on both sides of the Atlantic can work strategically together on energy infrastructure, production and technical innovations in the heavy oil, shale gas, tight oil and advanced energy technologies. The session will also address on the public policy decisions that are being made to diversify Canada’s oil and gas exports and offer reflections on efforts to ensure security of supply in the UK and continental Europe.
