It's CERAWeek. The annual energy conference chaired by Cambridge Energy Research Associates co-founder Daniel Yergin features a sort of who's-who for the energy industry meeting and discussing a variety of energy-related topics. This year, those topics include Russia's energy future and adapting to the "new energy era."

Attendees include a number of energy and environmental interests, including Patricia Espinosa, the executive secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

We take a closer at CERAWeek and some of the issues being discussed by talking with energy analyst Loren Steffy and News 88.7's energy and environment reporter Travis Bubenik.
