One of the world’s biggest and most influential conferences on energy will be held next week in Houston, just as political rhetoric reaches a peak in the nation on the costs and availability of oil and gasoline, natural gas, wind and solar power, and other sources of energy.

The five-day conference sponsored by IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA) will bring together more than 300 leaders of energy companies from around the globe, along with government officials, consultants, economists, and activists involved in a host of issues.

The agenda for the conference includes sessions on Middle East tensions, Canadian oil sands, Latin American exploration, and the North American shale boom.

 

Things kick off in earnest on Monday with a panel on “The Future of North American Gas and Oil Resources.” Later in the day, a discussion of “U.S. Energy Policy in an Election Year” will feature key aides on energy from Capitol Hill.

The middle of the week will spotlight two governors — Democrat John Hickenlooper of Colorado and Republican John Kasich of Ohio — to discuss energy development in their states.

Events wrap up on Friday with a discussion by two former governors who were both presidential candidates: Republican Haley Barbour of Mississippi and Democrat Bill Richardson of New Mexico, also a former Energy secretary.

National Journal’s coverage of Energy Week from Houston will be updated throughout the week on this website.
