Brouillette is taking the stage during a spotlight session on the event’s opening day to talk about financing the growth of liquefied natural gas (LNG), which, along with other rapidly developing low and zero-carbon gas technologies, will provide affordable, stable and secure energy for the global energy transition.

Based in San Antonio, Texas, Brouillette was the 15th US Secretary of Energy from 2019 – 2021 and the US Deputy Secretary of Energy from 2017 – 2019. He served as the President’s primary advisor on energy and nuclear matters and was a member of the President’s National Security Council as well as the Vice President’s National Space Council.

Brouillette is now president of Sempra Infrastructure, a leading global energy transition company that develops, builds, operates and invests in critical infrastructure to meet the world’s energy and climate needs.
