The quest for sufficient energy resources will play an important strategic role in the rise and fall of nations as well as become a source of potential global disputes over the coming decades.

• Is a transatlantic energy alliance desirable? Is it even possible? What should be the goals, scope, shape, and influence of such an alliance?
