About CERAWeek 2024
Multidimensional Energy Transition: Markets, climate, technology and geopolitics

CERAWeek 2024 will explore strategies for a multidimensional, multispeed and multifuel energy transition. The drive for energy transition is reshaping the competitive landscape for companies and countries – creating new opportunities and risks across the energy value chain. The imperative to reduce emissions has grown in urgency. Yet expectations of a simple linear global transition have been shaken as climate goals compete with concerns over how to deliver economic growth while ensuring energy security, energy access, and affordability. The multidimensional energy transition reflects different realities and timelines by region, technology, industry strategies, the variety of social and political approaches and divergent national priorities in an increasingly multipolar world.

CERAWeek 2024 will offer insight into the road map for a multidimensional transition – what it means for markets, geopolitics, investment, supply chains and technology – and competitive strategies. As the first major global energy gathering post-COP28, CERAWeek 2024 is a timely opportunity to share learnings, plans, and perspectives on the road map ahead. Join preeminent thought leaders from energy, finance, technology, and governments who will convene for dialogue on the agenda ahead as the world enters a new era of energy transition.

Key questions addressed at CERAWeek 2024:

Energy Markets – How will supply and demand balance in a world of uncertainty? Policy and Geopolitics – How will growing global tensions and conflicts reshape the international order? Company Strategies – Who will prevail and what will be sustainable competitive advantages for companies? Will companies be rewarded for diversification? Power Markets in Transition – What are the choices and challenges ahead in the face of growing power demand and testing of resilience? New Supply Chains for Net Zero – Where are the greatest stresses and sources of disruptions? How will the market for hydrogen develop? What will reshoring mean for energy? Capital Transition – How will persistent inflation and the higher cost of capital impact energy and infrastructure investment? What is the future of carbon markets, and their impact? What are the emerging financial strategies? Technology and Innovation – What role will AI play? How can the deployment and scaling of new technologies be accelerated? What are the next breakthroughs? What are the changing roles for nuclear power, geothermal, mobility, CCUS, battery storage and renewables? Climate and Sustainability – How will decarbonization process and how will climate goals compete with priorities around economic growth, security, affordability and access? What will be the approaches to implementing the COP28 commitments?Just Transition – How will a fair, equitable and just transition unfold that balances economic growth and emission reductions? What are the challenges for the Global South? Minerals and Metals – Where will critical minerals and metals be sourced? How will this shape the energy transition, and future geopolitics?

Through a diverse set of programs and platforms CERAWeek will highlight the linkages of these topics across industries and showcase the partnerships and collaborative models that are transforming energy.

CERAWEEK Programs:

CERAWeek consists of two concurrent programs – the Executive Conference and the Innovation Agora.

The Executive Conference provides an integrated framework for understanding what’s ahead for global energy markets and geopolitics. Corporate executives and senior government officials convene to address the defining trends and critical issues that are shaping the energy landscape. It is here where the worlds of energy, finance, manufacturing, mobility, technology, and policy converge. Through high-level dialogues and a global platform to share strategic visions, business leaders and policymakers advance ideas that will define the future of industry.

The Innovation Agora is an open marketplace for the exchange of insights and solutions on energy innovation and emerging technologies. It is also a forum to learn and connect, including an exciting program with many sessions and formats designed to facilitate meaningful dialogue and stimulate new thinking and learning. The program covers a wide array of transformational technology platforms ranging from digitalization, AI, analytics, and connectivity to robotics, blockchain, additive manufacturing and mobility, and including a continued focus on new technologies for decarbonization. The Agora convenes a remarkable community of technologists, investors, thought leaders, government officials and corporate innovators—all dedicated to creating new pathways and solutions for our energy future.

The CERAWeek Community

The CERAWeek community is a unique gathering of top global energy executives and leading members of the industrial, automotive, manufacturing and technology communities, as well as public policy-officials, financial institutions, tech, and thought leaders.

This March, we were delighted to reconvene the CERAWeek community in Houston. This year’s theme was “Navigating a Turbulent World: 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.

CERAWeek 2023 explored in-depth the strategies for a world in turmoil. 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, abundant and affordable future? CERAWeek offered insight on the energy future — and on emerging strategies and solutions.

Previous speakers at CERAWeek have included Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, President Iván Duque Márquez of Colombia, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Rwanda President Paul Kagame, Denmark’s Crown Princess Marie, Nobel Laureate Robert Schiller, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan, Senators Joe Manchin, Lisa Murkowski, and Dan Sullivan, chief executive officers of Accenture, Amazon Web Services, bp, Chevron, Dow, Électricité de France, ExxonMobil, Ford Motor Company, Rivian, TotalEnergies – along with Bill Gates, Mary Barra, Bill Ford, Henry Kissinger, Michael Pompeo, Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, author Walter Isaacson, and FedEx CEO Fred Smith.

Daniel Yergin, S&P Global Vice Chairman, serves as Co-Chairman of CERAWeek. Dr. Yergin is a highly respected authority on energy, international politics and economics. He was described by Fortune as “one of the planet’s foremost thinkers about energy and its implications”; by TIME as the “one man whose opinion matters more than any other on global energy markets”; and by the New York Times as “America’s most influential energy pundit.” Dr. Yergin is author of the Pulitzer Prize- winning book, as well as The Quest: Energy, Security, and the Remaking of the Modern World.

CERAWeek History

In 1983, Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA) was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts by Daniel Yergin and James Rosenfield. The energy research and consulting firm quickly became known for its critical knowledge and independent analysis on energy markets, geopolitics, industry trends, technology and strategy.

Each year, CERA clients gathered for a few days in Houston, Texas to attend the executive conference where they gained insight into the energy future while connecting with their peers. Over time, the program was expanded to five days of informative sessions and networking opportunities—and named CERAWeek.

Introduced in 2017, the Innovation Agora features exciting new programs and formats dedicated to emerging technologies. The Innovation Agora convenes a remarkable community of technologists, investors, thought leaders, government officials and corporate innovators to facilitate meaningful dialogue on the transformational technology platforms that are creating new energy pathways in the energy industry.

The conference is distinctive in the extraordinary depth and breadth of its content, attracting global thought leaders and shaping the global energy agenda.
