CERAWeek Welcome Letter from Lisa Davis
,P>Siemens is pleased to sponsor CERAWeek 2018 and welcome you to Houston - the home of Siemens' global Oil & Gas business.
The energy industry is at a tipping point - energy systems are changing quickly, and the technologies, markets, and way we have approached energy production, distribution, and consumption must be rethought. Shale resource development continues to drive the shift to natural gas instead of coal, providing a reliable and lower-carbon solution to power economies worldwide. Renewable energy continues to increase its share in the energy mix, creating new interconnected systems that are decentralized and digitally optimized. Longer term, the economy will be powered by energy ecosystems leveraging a wide range of technologies - with grid scale battery storage and renewables working alongside gas turbines - to supply low-carbon electricity for businesses and governments to fulfill their obligation to improve lives and build a sustainable future.
While these changes present significant challenges for the energy industry, they also offer unprecedented opportunities to innovate and lead for the future. Since our company's entry into the U.S. market in the 1840s, Siemens has been a leader in applying our engineering expertise and leadership to develop solutions that ensure our customers' success. Our focus on always staying on the cutting-edge - from early advances in automation to harnessing the digital revolution - has helped us excel as a global technology powerhouse in power generation, transmission and distribution.
Today, Siemens is leveraging our legacy of innovation to develop new energy ecosystems that incorporate sustainable and environmentally responsible energy and power solutions with existing technologies and sources to maintain an affordable energy supply. It's why we continue to make significant investments in innovation across the energy value chain - from oil and gas, to grid scale battery storage, to distributed power generation, to smart grid technologies, to the latest in digitalization, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things.
CERAWeek gives us all an opportunity to enhance our strategic understanding of political, economic, and technological forces and trends shaping the energy industry. The panel discussions, plenaries, Ministerial Dialogues and Insight Breakfasts offer in-depth insight and analysis into how energy developments are shaping economic growth and driving human progress.
We look forward to connecting with you at CERAWeek this year as we work together to provide energy solutions for the 21st century.
