Global Energy Supply Chains: Addressing A Dramatically Changed U.S. Energy Landscape (December 2022) summarizes geopolitical challenges to the security of conventional U.S. energy supply chains following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing war between the countries. The conflict’s impact on the United States, its allies, and its trading partners has prompted a reassessment of energy security challenges.
At the same time, there are also relatively new and growing supply chain issues and concerns associated with the metals and minerals needed for the global adoption of clean energy technologies. This paper provides background on both conventional and clean energy supply chains in the context of today’s changed U.S. energy profile, current and ongoing energy security concerns, and climate change impacts. The paper specifically focuses on the role of the U.S. Department of Energy as the federal agency primarily responsible for addressing both the security of, and emissions from, conventional and clean energy supply chains.
