Webinar: Renewables in the Caspian Region: Areas of Opportunity and Diversification
Oil and gas markets have been fundamentally challenged by pressures to accelerate the lowcarbon transition, emerging trade routes, soaring oil and gas prices, and reoriented corporate portfolios. While the world navigates extreme market volatility and upending corporate strategies and government policies, energy security has become the utmost priority in geopolitics. As Europe has vowed to halt Russian energy imports, new markets have opened, and new industries are emerging. The Caspian region, with tremendous wind, solar, and hydropower potential, can help solve market uncertainty and growing global energy demands.
How are Caspian region countries diversifying energy portfolios? How are they responding to the global energy crisis? And what are the upcoming opportunities and challenges?
The Caspian Policy Center is proud to host leading energy market analysts, regional experts, and energy innovators to address these challenges and discuss the Caspian region’s renewable energy potential.
