|As the energy capital of the world, Houston has become a global leader advancing the energy transition. The City is the headquarters and the intellectual capital for virtually every segment of the energy industry including exploration, production, transmission, marketing, supply, and technology
Houston is currently working to produce 5 million megawatt hours of local solar energy per year by 2050, which will improve the city’s energy resilience while lowering Houstonians’ electricity bills to address the energy burden for low-income families. Through multiple city initiatives and public-private partnerships, Houston is also working toward a future where electric vehicles make up at least 50% of cars sold in Houston by 2050.
CERAWeek brings the nation’s top energy leaders to Houston to provide a forum for discussing new ideas, insights and solutions to the biggest challenges facing the future of energy, the environment and climate. This year’s conference addresses the theme, “Navigating a Turbulent World: Energy, Climate and Security” will discuss ways to advance strategies for an industry struggling to adapt to global uncertainty driven by the pandemic and shifting geopolitics.
