Today Iain Conn, Centrica plc’s Group Chief Executive, took part in a discussion for the Columbia Energy Exchange podcast, which features in-depth conversations with the world’s top energy and climate leaders from government, business, academia and civil society.
Hosted by Bill Loveless, the program explores today’s most pressing opportunities and challenges across energy sources, financial markets, geopolitics and climate change as well as their implications for both the U.S. and the world.
In this episode of the Columbia Energy Exchange, Iain and Bill discuss the widespread disruption in energy industries around the world today, exploring how success in managing change often depends on who’s in charge of the company.
They also discuss the repositioning of Centrica from exploration and production and central power generation to what Iain describes as “customer-facing” businesses; a move Iain says makes sense, given fluctuations taking place in energy markets.
