James A. Baker III Hall

For the sixth consecutive year, the Baker Institute Center for Energy Studies and Baker Botts L.L.P. co-hosted their annual energy conference. Held across two days, this year's event tackled what is arguably the largest issue facing energy markets and the world today: the complexity of balancing energy security needs with energy transition goals.

In particular, the conference addressed how the energy industry is responding to recent geopolitical and market events, how these developments will impact the momentum of a meaningful energy transition and what this means for domestic and foreign energy and security policy.
