CERAWeek 2022

Pace of Change: Energy, Climate, and Innovation

CERAWeek 2022, our 40th Anniversary, was an incredible gathering of more than 5,000 delegates and 900 speakers from 87 countries. We were delighted to reconvene the CERAWeek community in-person for the first time in three years. We gathered at a profoundly consequential moment for the world of energy and global affairs. CERAWeek took place against the backdrop of the conflict in Ukraine, the upheaval in energy markets it has created, and the ongoing transition of industries and economies to a lower-carbon future. The convergence of these near-term shocks and longer-term transformations injected a new level of importance to an already significant agenda. 

Through shared learnings we explored the ongoing challenges and opportunities for the industry. The theme of this year’s conference was “Pace of Change: Energy, Climate, and Innovation.” Discussions focused on the new geopolitical order that is unfolding in real-time, disruptions to global supply chains, pathways to achieve net zero ambitions, the role of gas in the energy future, technologies to accelerate hydrogen production and scale carbon capture, and strategies to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion for the energy industry’s future workforce.

CERAWeek 2022 Themes

    More Energy, Lower Emissions

    How will the industry respond to the challenge of helping achieve COP26 commitments to net-zero emissions? What are the fundamental shifts needed in investment, regulatory policy, and technology? What are the fuels of the future and how will centers of production and demand evolve? Will natural gas be a bridge fuel or a casualty of the energy transition?

    Geopolitics and Energy Markets

    Recent election outcomes, the pandemic, growing nationalism, cross-border carbon taxes, and trade friction all create considerable risks and uncertainties for global energy. What is the emerging new map of geopolitics? The US–China relationship, central to the global economy, remains tense. How will growing rifts impact energy trade, risk management, and capital flows?

    Financing the Energy Future: The capital transition

    Recalibrating the world’s energy system to meet net-zero targets and to ensure energy production will meet demand will require trillions of dollars of investment. These investment needs come as the global economy faces a fragile post-pandemic recovery and ESG demands are growing. How will investors navigate these risks and opportunities?
