A.  Because our old friend from Arctic Gas days in the ’70s, Daniel Yergin, invites us to the most important energy conference of the year!

Strategic confrontation and fractious geopolitics, disruptive new technologies, and the future of energy supply are creating uncertainty in the energy sector. In this uncertain and volatile environment, a comprehensive perspective on how to address these complex challenges is critical.

“I don’t think there is an energy conference anywhere else in the world that has more attendance and has more of an impact for the industry than CERAWeek.”
Hon. Rick Perry, Secretary of Energy, U.S. Department of Energy
