On today's Tactical Tuesday, Nico Johnson leads a conversation on the growing presence of renewables at CERAWeek, the world's leading annual global energy conference. Nico delves into the language surrounding the energy transition conversation and talks with three solar industry leaders about the importance of attending this event, held annually in Houston. 

You'll hear from Meghan Nutting, EVP of Government and Regulatory Affairs at Sunnova Energy, Abigail (Abby) Ross Hopper, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), and Claire Broido Johnson, COO of Fermata Energy.

CERAWeek, organized by S&P Global, brings together the world's economic, geopolitical, energy, policy, climate, and corporate leaders. Nico and his guests explain the increased visibility of solar, wind and other clean energy sources at the event, which traditionally focused on oil and gas. 

While fossil fuels still dominate, there’s a lot more chatter about the energy transition. Nico and his guests explain how the broader energy sector thinks about renewables, the necessity of building bridges across the industry, and why attending CERAWeek is critical for those in the renewable energy industry. Tune in to this podcast episode to better understand the energy transition conversation and how all energy sectors can better align for a cleaner future.
