C.O.B. Tuesday

Sharing energy knowledge. Embracing energy innovation.

Let’s talk about energy.

The energy transition is one of the defining challenges of our lifetime—and while many people feel passionately about the issues, few genuinely comprehend the numbers and constraints behind the energy competition. To address this problem, Close of Business Tuesday (C.O.B.T.) brings “Truth in Energy.” We invite industry leaders, innovators, investors, academics, regulators, and political leaders to join us for collegial, thoughtful and data-driven discussions about the future of energy. Featuring guests such as Dr. Dan Yergin, Congressman Bill Flores, Senator Dan Sullivan, Admiral Bill McRaven, Amy Myers Jaffe of TUFTS University, Dr. Naomi Boness

of Stanford University's Natural Gas Initiative, Ben Ratner of the Environmental Defense Fund, Journalist Brian Sullivan, Author Bjorn Lomberg, Steve Koonin, Michael Shellenberger and other thought leaders, Close of Business Tuesday hosts honest, timely conversations with people who understand the issues in energy today and bring an insightful, pragmatic approach to problem solving. We can’t solve the world’s energy issues alone. But together, we can talk about big problems and uncover insights that will point to a more sustainable energy future.

Join the conversation.
