Energy security in Europe—and globally—now rests on U.S. natural gas exports. Europe’s shift from Russian gas to other supplies has dramatically and permanently changed global gas trade and energy markets. With storage full for this winter, policymakers must now prepare for years of energy restructuring. Cooperation between the United States and Europe is and will remain critical for European energy security, hastening the energy transition, and maintaining strong transatlantic trade.”
