On Oct. 4-5, 2023 the Baker Institute Center for Energy Studies and Baker Botts L.L.P. co-hosted our seventh annual energy summit.

This year's summit focused on the evolving energy mix and addressed the challenges and opportunities for countries and companies worldwide as they work to manage energy transitions — while also ensuring energy security, commercial and financial viability of new innovations at scale, and meaningful reduction of CO2 emissions.

The two-day conference featured international and domestic perspectives through keynote addresses and discussions with energy experts in industry, government, and academia.

This was a hybrid event: Attendees were able to participate in person and/or virtually.
