Energy & Transportation: Market and Customer Dynamics
Where / When will a tipping point be reached in the mass adoption of EVs? What are the implications for the automotive industry and/or O&G community as this market transition occurs?
Energy & Transportation: Infrastructure Integration
How can ridesharing, autonomous vehicles, and electrified transport options integrate into existing transportation infrastructure? What new models or systems are needed to make this transition a reality? How can we capture the impact on energy consumption?
"Smart" System Design: Pathways for the Future Grid
What can the grid actually support from a resource mix perspective? What do wholesale markets look like with zero marginal fuel cost?
"Smart" System Design: Resilient Infrastructure
Post-Harvey Discussion on Improvements to Urban Planning and the Costs/Benefits of Building for "Worst Case Scenario"
Energy Geopolitics and Supply Chain Considerations
Who are the main players in critical resources for a diversified resource base? How will competing goals in power generation and transportation be impacted by supply chain constraints?
Natural Gas: Going Global?
What is Natural Gas' role as a transition fuel? By how much will global natural gas demand really change and the infrastructure to support (pipelines vs. LNG) adapt to meet this demand?
Innovation in Oil & Gas
What is the digital oilfield and how will these technologies improve efficiency in oil and gas operations?
