Global Energy Transitions Summit

Please scroll down to view footage of the full event. A keynote address by former Secretary of State James A. Baker, III, the honorary chair of the Baker Institute, is featured in the third video. Mr. Baker discussed a plan to address climate change. 

The Baker Institute Center for Energy Studies and Baker Botts LLP co-hosted the first Global Energy Transitions Summit, a forum for key market players and decision-makers to gain insight into the future of the energy industry.

The summit featured over a dozen prominent speakers from the oil, gas and power industries — including CEOs and other corporate leaders, along with industry experts in finance, investment and law — who covered topics from oil and gas to electricity, renewables and technology. In addition, panel discussions examined ongoing energy transitions and how economics, policy and technology are driving change across all energy markets.
