We review one of the most accurate low-energy determinations of $\alpha_s$. Comparing at short distances the QCD static energy at three loops and resummation of the next-to-next-to leading logarithms with its determination in 2+1-flavor lattice QCD, we obtain $\alpha_s(1.5~{\rm GeV})=0.336^{+0.012}_{-0.008}$, which corresponds to $\alpha_s(M_Z)=0.1166^{+0.0012}_{-0.0008}$. We discuss future perspectives.
