The Shifting Balance Of Global Energy Power

Much has changed in the global energy sector from when KPMG held its last Global Energy Conference a year ago. The mood last year was glum as phrases such as “lower-for-longer” dominated the conversation. This year’s meeting was noticeably more optimistic, with an air of confidence evident among the attendees at the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria.

“Our industry is driving the future, but at the same time, we’re at the nexus of converging forces,” said Regina Mayor, the U.S. national sector leader of energy and natural resource for KPMG, upon opening the firm’s 16th Global Energy Conference.
