An energy briefing with Daniel Yergin: Understanding Energy Solutions
Energy innovation is critically important for economic growth – especially in poor countries – as well as for the Earth’s climate and environment. I recently had a chance to talk with Daniel Yergin, one of the world’s most respected analysts on energy issues.

Daniel Yergin is a very smart guy who’s been writing about energy for decades now. He won a Pulitzer for his book The Prize: the Epic Quest for Oil Money and Power and is considered one of the world’s experts on energy markets, particularly oil and gas. He’s the founder of Cambridge Energy Research Associates (CERA), an energy consulting company specializing in advising governments and private companies on energy markets, geopolitics, industry trends and strategy.  I recently had a chance to talk with him at the ECO:nomics conference hosted by the Wall Street Journal.

When Yergin and I talked, our conversation ranged over a bunch of different but related and important topics: trends in the energy markets and the prospects for new sources of oil and gas; government’s role and China’s emerging leadership in energy innovation; the possibilities for a new generation of safe nuclear reactors that are cost-competitive; and the opportunities for sub-Saharan Africa to grow as a major source of oil and gas.

I hope you’ll watch this video of my conversation with Yergin and leave a comment sharing your ideas and perspective on the future of energy. It’s extremely important that more people become informed and involved in helping figure out how to move things forward.
