As global energy needs grow, the U.S. has become the largest oil and gas producer in the world, surpassing Russia and Saudi Arabia. Moreover, the U.S. is now preparing to become a net exporter of natural gas, competing with Qatar and Australia for LNG export pole position. But renewable energy costs have come down substantially over the past few years, making the global energy landscape increasingly complex. What are the opportunities and challenges in natural gas and renewable energy infrastructure development in North and South America? What are the market, financing and legal trends impacting development in this region? In this program, energy experts discuss the energy infrastructure in the Americas, and the effect of U.S. energy abundance on Japan.
