Barney Crockett, Lord Provost, City of Aberdeen, UK; Christine Sagen Helgø, Mayor, City of Stavanger, Norway; Michael Savage, Mayor, City of Halifax, CA; Sylvester Turner, Mayor, City of Houston, Texas; Carlos Pascual, Senior Vice President, IHS Markit. Mayors are at the center of leading the energy transition. According to the United Nations, close to 70% of worlds’ population will live in urban areas by 2050, including an additional 2.5 billion people. Cities will play a critical road in achieving Paris climate goals. This first annual gathering of mayors at CERAWeek will examine new models for cities from around the world - from smart cities to mobility mavens and everything in between. City leaders will share their experiences and challenges in driving these innovative transitions.
