Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi will receive the CERAWeek Global Energy and Environment Leadership Award and deliver a keynote address at the CERAWeek 2021 on 5th March 2021. The award was instituted in 2016 and recognizes the commitment of leadership to the future of global energy & environment and for offering solutions and policies for energy access, affordability & environmental stewardship.
Climate change and energy transition are driving fundamental shifts in investment, regulatory policy, technology, strategy, and industry structure. The environmental agenda will accelerate in the run-up to COP26 and in response to growing political and popular calls for net-zero emissions. It has been organized to look for strategies and investments that companies will adapt to meet these demands.
CERAWeek was founded in 1983 by Dr. Daniel Yergin. It has been organized in Houston in March every year since 1983 and is considered the world’s premier annual energy platform. CERAWeek 2021 is being convened virtually from 1st March to 5th March 2021.
The program will explore how will markets and economies navigate the current downturn. Recalibrating the world’s energy system to meet net-zero targets and low-carbon ambitions will require trillions of dollars of investment over the coming decades. Trillions more will be needed to ensure energy production will meet demand. These investment needs come as the global economy faces a fragile post-pandemic recovery.
Moreover, innovation and technology are playing an ever more strategic role in the energy transition. The energy innovation ecosystem is accelerating, driven both by the response to the pandemic and by cost, safety, resilience, and environmental imperatives. Hence, the role of renewables, hydrogen, and nuclear will be crucial for the future.
