The Financial Times is proud to present the FT Energy Strategies Summit: Risk and Opportunity in a New Energy Era,taking place on May 14, 2015 in New York. The current climate of the US Energy industry is optimistic with the fortunes of the shale pioneers improving and LNG exports already underway.

This year’s event focuses on the economic, trade and geopolitical implications of potential crude oil exports from the US and the risks for global energy security of placing too much hope on new energy abundance from the US shale boom. The summit will also focus on the growing competitiveness of renewables, the implications of growing disinvestment from fossil fuels, and the shift for the relative balance of fossil fuels vs clean energy in the country’s energy mix.
