WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tomorrow, September 20, 2018, U.S. Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette will travel to Halifax, Canada for the G7 Energy Ministerial. While there, he will meet and have high-level discussions on global energy policy with his counterparts from the seven member countries of the G7.

The Energy Ministers Meeting, first convened in 2014, provides a high-level platform to voice a collective G7 commitment to strengthen energy security and ensure that energy is used to enhance global security. Deputy Secretary Brouillette will emphasize energy security as a top priority for both the G7 and the Trump Administration, and underscore the Administration’s desire for a balanced approach to energy that protects the environment while promoting infrastructure investment and economic growth.

The Canadian G7 Presidency is planning to issue a Chair’s Summary following the Energy Ministers Meeting, reflecting the Ministers’ discussions throughout the session.
