Memorable and Meaningful Moments
Now known as CERAWeek by IHS Markit, this annual mega-conference of the energy industries is effectively the Davos of energy. Legendary energy author Dan Yergin manages every year to attract the very top decision and policymakers that don't come together at any other event. Just consider that this year's gathering in March included the prime minister of India, the president of Columbia, the CEOs of bp, Exxon Mobil, Saudi Aramco, Occidental, Royal Dutch Shell, Total, ConocoPhillips, Chevron, Duke Energy, AEP, Edison International, PSEG, Xcel Energy, Enbridge, Amazon Web Services, United Airlines, Schneider Electric, Siemens Energy, Mitsubishi Power Americas, Petrobras, ChargePoint and Air Products, among others, multiple members of the U.S. Senate and Cabinet, many ministers from across the world, and countless experts on the value chains of petroleum, natural gas, and electricity.
The PUF team got to sit in on some of these CERAWeek conversations. Naturally we were particularly interested in the views that were expressed by the seven top execs of U.S. utilities. Here's a tasting of what Nick Akins, Ben Fowke, Lynn Good, Ralph Izzo, Badar Khan, Pedro Pizarro, and Gil Quiniones had to say. And for a light dessert, what the top execs of Black & Veatch Global Power and ChargePoint had to say too.
