Energy and Climate, major geopolitical issues

The Ifri Centre for Energy draws the attention of public and private decision makers on the geopolitical factors influencing global energy markets, and assesses their economic, political and environmental implications for French and European policies in the short and long-term. The areas of research of the Centre for Energy cover the geopolitics of hydrocarbons, the European energy markets, the transformation of the electricity sector, the energy policies of emerging economies, the fight against climate change and the geopolitical dimension of the European energy transition.

With its notes and research papers as well as closed-door seminars, the Centre for Energy is conducting forefront research, benefitting from regular exchanges with international experts and stakeholders. These works feed into the researchers’ frequent interventions in the media and international conferences. Gathering in Brussels the key stakeholders of the energy sector, the Ifri Energy Breakfast Roundtables have now become major European events.

Organisation of the Centre

The governance structure of the Centre ensures that our work is independent and of the highest quality and relevance.

The Steering Committee gathers representatives from the Centre’s partners, the Director of Ifri, and the Director of the Centre for Energy. Meetings of the Steering Committee provide our partners the opportunity to express their views on the general orientation of the Centre.

The Centre also benefits from contributions of a wide network of researchers and experts in the energy field in Europe and the world. Traditionally, Ifri maintains close ties with a large number of research institutions that contribute to the work of the Ifri Centre for Energy.

The Center is financed by Ifri partner institutions, organisations and companies as presented in the activity report.
