Wind, oil, coal, gas, solar – the speakers at next month's CERAWeek 2011 are experts in obtaining and delivering every type of energy now in use. Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will participate together March 11 in a session moderated by conference Chairman Daniel Yergin.

Energy company leaders from around the world are heading to Houston for CERAWeek 2011, a March 7-11 meeting, to discuss how their industry will adapt to changing market and regulatory demands during the 21st Century. The "Leading the Way: Energy Strategies for a World of Change" event, which is IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates' 30th annual executive conference, will conclude with a March 11 session featuring former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton and moderated by conference Chairman Daniel Yergin, who chairs IHS CERA. He won a Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for his bestselling book "The Prize" about the oil industry.

Listed speakers including Qatar's minister of energy; Gregory Boyce, CEO of Peabody Energy Corp.; Robert Dudley, BP's chief executive; Alexander Medvedev, deputy chairman of Gazprom; Steve Ballmer, Microsoft Corp.'s CEO; Angola's minister of petroleum; Youcef Yousfi, Algeria's minister of energy and mines; Farouk Hussain Al-Zanki, chief executive of Kuwait Petroleum Corp.; and numerous leaders of U.S. energy companies.

The conference's website notes that global energy demand is expected to increase by as much as 40 percent by 2030. "Driven by policy, markets, technology, price, climate concerns and recognition of the sheer scale necessary to support the energy needs of a growing world, the energy system will certainly be reshaped. With much of the energy infrastructure that will be needed to meet that demand yet to be built, the energy industry faces an enormous challenge," it says.
