Welcome to the September edition of Energy Panorama. We began the month in Madrid with our partners IPD Latin America for the inaugural Madrid Energy Conference. We were pleased to count on the participation of Spain’s Secretary of Energy, Jose Dominguez Abascal and senior executives and government officials from across Europe and Latin America. Be sure to check out our first short report based upon discussions at the conference, Global Energy Transition Demands Cooperation, not Competition; Oil and Gas Companies Must Lead the Way. We will be publishing several other similar reports in the coming weeks.
With the launch of the Madrid Energy Conference we have created a new platform and venue for discussion of the issues at the core of the Europe-Latin America energy nexus. Mark your calendar to join us on September 16-18, 2020 for the second annual Madrid Energy Conference.
We are also pleased to publish two important reports focused on lithium in collaboration with the Payne Institute at the Colorado School of Mines. Authored by La Jolla Conference speaker and lithium expert Emily Hersh, the reports are a continuation of our work on the issues surrounding lithium developments in Latin America and the battery and energy storage market as part of our Energy Transition Initiative.
The first report, Latin America’s Diverse Lithium Opportunity and a Sustainable Energy Future, offers an important assessment of the state of the lithium market in Latin America, and what needs to take place in terms of policy for further development.
The second report, The Lithium in a Battery, focuses on the critical aspects of lithium as a battery input and clarifies the true role of lithium in the battery market.
Our webinar series in September featured further discussion of Mexico and the natural gas market under AMLO with analyst Emily Medina.
Our webinar series next month turns to Argentina and discussion with YPF on their energy transition strategies and investment plans.
We are off to Bogota on October 29-30 for our Oil & Gas Roundtable and two private sessions focused on social license to operate issues and energy transition. We look forward to seeing you there.
