API Leader Says ‘Generation Energy’ Defines Growing Demand, Emissions Reductions

The leader of the American Petroleum Institute (API) says every generation has its own defining challenges and accomplishment.

We are currently in America’s “Generation Energy,” API CEO and President Mike Sommers told reporters during a conference call on Jan. 8 ahead of his group’s State of American Energy 2019 luncheon in Washington, D.C. Sommers said this generation is defined as Generation Energy because of the unprecedented dual achievement of meeting record world energy demand while driving record CO2 emissions reductions.
