Energy markets have much to analyse ahead of the polls. Biden supports environmental regulation and climate change diplomacy. Trump seeks to block those policies, supporting fossil fuels for economic growth and jobs. Refinitiv’s Richard Mably, former Global Financial Editor at Reuters, will lead a panel discussion with Energy Columnist John Kemp and U.S. Energy Policy Editor Rich Valdmanis and Global Commodities Editor Simon Webb of Reuters.
