One of the cannot-miss energy events of the year is CERAWeek, an annual conference, which brings together policymakers, administration officials, and industry leaders. This year’s conference theme, “Navigating a Turbulent World: Energy, Climate and Security,” could not have been more timely. The conference explored ideas, insights, and solutions to the biggest challenges facing the present and the future of the energy industry, environment, and climate.
CRES President Heather Reams and VP of External Affairs Christine Harbin traveled to Houston to participate in bipartisan discussions about advancing clean energy development in the United States, and they enjoyed a full week of meetings with policymakers and industry partners who are at the forefront of American energy leadership.
- Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK) spoke about the important role their home state of Alaska plays in increasing American energy production and strengthening our national security.
- The CRES Team engaged with U.S. Department of Energy Loan Program Office Director Jigar Shah, an office charged with helping new clean and renewable energy projects across the country get off the ground and into deployment using a mixture of private and federal support.
- CRES Forum’s Senior Policy Fellow Dave Banks participated in a discussion on the critical need for private and public sectors to work together to advance commonsense policies that promote American energy leadership and clean energy advancements.
The positive trajectory of clean energy in America is encouraging. CRES looks forward to continuing these important conversations and engaging constructively on climate and clean energy.
