HOUSTON, Dec. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The 41st annual gathering of CERAWeek by S&P Global—the world's preeminent energy conference—will convene energy industry leaders, experts, government officials and policymakers, as well as leaders from the technology, financial and industrial communities, March 6-10 in Houston.

CERAWeek 2023: Navigating a Turbulent World: Energy, Climate and Security will examine how a new era of global uncertainty and change is reshaping challenges and opportunities for the energy transition.

Chaired by Daniel Yergin, Vice Chairman of S&P Global and author of The New Map: Energy, Climate and the Clash of Nations, the conference will explore the challenges of reducing emissions while meeting growing energy demand—all as the world grapples with the lasting impacts of a pandemic, shifting geopolitics, economic instability and the upheaval of war.

"The energy transition—a monumental undertaking under even the most stable conditions—has been made all the more challenging by a global economy beset with volatility and disruption," said Yergin. "The sequential shocks of pandemic and war have brought with them a greater recognition that the energy future must be secure and affordable, as well as sustainable. Meeting this challenge will require keen strategies, smart investment and transformative technologies. These are among the important issues that the world's energy leaders will address at CERAWeek 2023 in Houston."

The CERAWeek 2023 conference program will explore key themes related to:

  • The Energy Trilemma: Balancing security, transition and affordability
  • Geopolitics and Geoeconomics: An era of volatility
  • Competitive Landscape, Technology and Innovation
  • Financing the Energy Future: The capital transition
  • Supply Chains, Commodity Markets and Energy Transition
  • Future Workforce: Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and next-generation skills

The week-long event will also include the CERAWeek Innovation Agora, serving as the center of technology and innovation programming at the conference. Featuring a community of thought leaders, technologists, start-ups, investors, academics, energy companies and government officials, the Innovation Agora will showcase transformational technology platforms in the energy space ranging from digitalization, AI, cybersecurity, analytics and connectivity, robotics, blockchain, additive manufacturing, mobility and decarbonization technologies.
