Geopolitical upheaval and instability owing to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is causing major disruption to the global energy sector and shaping the pace and scale of the energy transition. Heightened energy security and affordability has quickly become a priority for governments around the world, as has the need to achieve more sustainable energy to help mitigate the negative impacts of climate change.
Simultaneously achieving all three objectives of the energy trilemma – that is, ensuring energy sustainability, security and affordability – is a complex balancing act. We believe these dynamics are creating meaningful investment opportunities for infrastructure investors.
The Maple-Brown Abbott Global Listed Infrastructure team’s 'The Energy Trilemma' series provides readers a timely deep dive of this topic over three white papers.

Runs through the three dimensions of the energy trilemma, with a particular focus on dissecting what energy security means and the challenges faced by governments to balance these long-term outcomes.
Highlights the unique role the North American midstream sector can play in addressing the three pillars of the energy trilemma and why we see a stronger investment outlook for natural gas infrastructure assets.
Looks at our approach to environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and details how we specifically integrate these factors into our investment process to help balance long-term opportunities with stranded asset risk.
The thought leadership series comes off the back of the team’s popular white paper, ‘The impacts of the energy transition on infrastructure needs in the US’, released in 2021.
