In 1983, Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA) was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts by Daniel Yergin and James Rosenfield. The energy research and consulting firm quickly became known for its critical knowledge and independent analysis on energy markets, geopolitics, industry trends, technology and strategy.
Each year, CERA clients gathered for a few days in Houston, Texas to attend the executive conference where they gained insight into the energy future while connecting with their peers. Over time, the program was expanded to five days of informative sessions and networking opportunities—and named CERAWeek.
Introduced in 2017, CERAWeek Agora features exciting new programs and formats dedicated to emerging technologies. CERAWeek Agora convenes a remarkable community of technologists, investors, thought leaders, government officials and corporate innovators to facilitate meaningful dialogue on the transformational technology platforms that are creating new energy pathways in the energy industry.
The CERAWeek program provides comprehensive insight into the global and regional energy future by addressing key issues and has become the world’s premier energy event. The conference is distinctive in the extraordinary depth and breadth of its content, attracting global thought leaders and shaping the global energy agenda.
