This report focuses on the current state of international energy governance and whether the overarching global energy regime should be reformed. After exploring these topics in detail, the text’s authors conclude that 1) there is no consensus on the direction of transnational energy policy and governance; 2) the governance structures that do exist don’t always reflect contemporary realities and have obvious capability gaps; and 3) for several reasons, the sheer number of initiatives now competing to shape the world’s energy architecture aren’t necessarily a bad thing. Finally, the authors close their analysis by providing policy options for those in the US government who work in the international energy governance field.
