Navigating a world in turbulence: Energy, climate and security

The global energy industry is facing a welter of uncertainty and change -- driven by the effects of the global pandemic; shifting geopolitics and a war launched by one of the world’s major energy powers; high energy prices; supply chain and infrastructure constraints; and economic instability. The energy industry continues to grapple with the twin challenge of meeting the world’s growing energy demand while reducing emissions. Designing the world’s energy systems for a lower carbon future remains paramount. How will the industry navigate the turbulence and lead the global transition to a sustainable, secure and abundant affordable future? 

CERAWeek 2023 will explore in-depth the strategies for a world in turmoil. Foremost thought leaders, policymakers and executives from across energy, finance, technology, and industry will engage at CERAWeek 2023 in for dialogue, shared learning and connection. CERAWeek will offer insight on the energy future -- and on emerging strategies and solutions. Join us March 6-10 in Houston.
