Building Europe’s Energy Security
The U.S. – Europe Energy Bridge improves European energy security by connecting partners in the region to American investors, technology, and expertise.
These linkages create a path to more reliable, affordable energy for businesses and consumers and promote integration with regional and global energy markets—empowering partners to break free from the energy and financial traps that produce insecurity and instability. This foundational work will lead to a more secure Europe and accelerate a just and secure clean energy transition for the region.
