EVENT SYNOPSIS: Join us for an insightful panel discussion as we delve into the confusion between business economics and energy policies. The panel will feature the Financial Policy Council’s leading authorities in Oil & Gas and Renewables. Conference attendees will gain premier access to the much-anticipated white paper by FPC’s Energy Group, titled “Energy: Recommendations, Projections, and Opportunities.” We invite you to explore with our panelists the following topics:

Renewable energy is not on track. What is impeding the growth of renewable energy, a sector possessing a brand force surpassing the likes of Coca Cola? How do we fix this? How can a rebellion in developing nations derail this if we don’t get our act together?

Will oil and gas continue to bail us out?: The current crackdown on drilling permits have a shocking impact on the future – find out when What about the rumors that fracking might be banned? How fast will the market spiral out of control?
The influence of war and geopolitical restructuring. Decisions made by governments and the United Nations are affecting U.S. energy markets. How will our enemies use energy as a weapon against us?
The impact of misguided U.S. policies. Our policies appear to be missing the mark in achieving the outlined goal.  Are subsidies doing more harm than good?

Also, to be discussed:

  • Are there U.S. strategies causing failures in the sectors they aim to support?
  • The coal consumption paradox.
  • The fantasy of Net Zero – numbers don’t lie!

This is more than an event; it’s an opportunity to deepen your understanding of the sophisticated dynamics between energy and business.
