Multidimensional Energy Transition:
Markets, climate, technology and geopolitics

The latest information, news and announcements from Microsoft, our partners and customers at CERAWeek 2024

Energy and resources companies face the tremendous challenge of tackling the energy trilemma: meeting global energy demand that will increase ~50% in the next 30 years with a secure and resilient supply, abundant and equitable access, and sustainable practices. To balance these changing demands with geopolitics, regulations, and climate, the energy sector is turning to digital technologies to grow their businesses and operate more efficiently and sustainably.

The energy and resources industry is at the forefront of innovation to help solve these challenges and develop new solutions to decarbonize and move toward carbon free energy. And now, in this era of AI, Microsoft enables customers and partners to unlock the power of AI across the enterprise to accelerate the energy transition and to create a data driven digital foundation for a sustainable, net zero future.

Join us at CERAWeek 2024, the world’s premier energy conference to explore the markets, climate, technology and geopolitics of a multidimensional energy transition.
