Financial Executives International presents the Financial Executive Podcast: an audio digest focusing on the ideas and strategies of senior-level financial executives.
Can Renewable Energy Save Us?
The War in Ukraine created a new global energy crisis, while at the same time the Biden administration’s Inflation Reduction Act is making a historic investment in solar and renewable energy. The question remains whether the transition away from fossil fuels can keep pace with renewable sector’s capacity as a reliable source of energy for the US economy.

The Future of the Global Energy Infrastructure
Whether it’s uncertainty in the Gulf, war in Ukraine or the move to renewable sources, the energy industry is facing a generational paradigm shift with long-term implications for its future. Not since the crisis of the 1970s have energy providers been confronted with so many risks and opportunities.
Fossil fuels remain at the center of the global energy ecosystem, and Houston-based Halliburton provides the infrastructure to keep it flowing, from exploration to production. But as global geopolitical dynamics change, and domestic priorities shift, how the oil and gas industry responds to changes on the ground today will shape the sector for decades.
Special Guest: Charlie Geer.

Coming Out and Being An Ally In the Finance Suite
