CERA Chairman Daniel Yergin

CERA Chairman Daniel Yergin discussed the themes of the conference, including cost issues and the new emphasis on renewables.
“We’ve never seen so much emphasis on R&D as we’ve seen across the whole spectrum,” Yergin said. “Environment, climate change and CO2 is clearly a pivot point.”
Wednesday will have a stronger energy consumer perspective when speakers will include Energy Secretary Sam Bodman and Frederick Smith, CEO of FedEx.
