CERAWeek 2011 -- Leading the Way: Energy Strategies for a World of Change
2:53 PM MST | January 24, 2011 | IHS Online Pressroom
As the world begins to look beyond the economic downturn, it will face the substantial challenge of global energy demand that is expected to increase by up to 40 percent by 2030. Driven by policy, markets, technology, price, climate concerns and recognition of the sheer scale necessary to support the energy needs of a growing world, the energy system will certainly be reshaped. With much of the energy infrastructure that will be needed to meet that demand yet to be built, the energy industry faces an enormous challenge.
How the industry can adapt in an era of persistent change will be the focus of IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates’ (IHS CERA) 30th annual executive conference, CERAWeek 2011, Leading the Way: Energy Strategies for a World of Change, to be held March 7-11, 2011, in Houston. The world’s premier energy conference, CERAWeek 2011 will convene an international group of more than 200 industry, policy and financial leaders, along with leading IHS CERA analysts, to explore the implications for strategies and investment that will shape an uncertain future.
“As the immediacy of the Great Recession passes there is a renewed sense of the enormous challenge of energy demand growth that the world will experience over the next two decades,” said IHS CERA Chairman Daniel Yergin. “This will be a time of great challenges but also opportunity as the industry works to meet the demands of a growing world with new investment and technologies. CERAWeek 2011 will provide participants with the insight and perspective necessary to navigate this ever-changing landscape.”
CERAWeek 2011 will feature addresses from a number of prominent leaders, including:
The conference will be held March 7-11, 2011 at the Hilton Americas Hotel in Houston, Texas. Further information and delegate registration is available at www.ceraweek.com.
