40 years after the OPEC Oil Embargo
How secure is our energy future now?
SAFE recently hosted OPEC Oil Embargo +40: A National Summit on Energy Security, bringing together iconic policymakers, leading CEOs, and senior military leaders to discuss the often overlooked threat of oil dependence and the solutions that are now within our reach.
Forty years after the OPEC oil embargo of 1973, energy and transportation markets are experiencing dramatic changes. Though oil dependence remains a threat to America’s economy and security, the nation has never been better positioned to meaningfully strengthen its energy security.
More than 350 people attended the Summit in Washington, D.C. on October 16. Key participants included Dr. Henry Kissinger, former Secretaries Madeleine Albright, Leon Panetta, and James Schlesinger, and leading CEOs Daniel Akerson of General Motors and Jeffrey Immelt of GE.
