“Two key themes have underpinned the advancement of human society: innovative new technologies and an abundance of energy. The people working at the intersection of these two themes continue to shape and influence our collective future. These people are “Energy Influencers.” However, living the life of an Energy Influencer takes a lot of grit and passion. It involves keeping one’s cool in a hyper-cyclical industry, working in extreme environments, and providing data-driven counter-arguments to energy skeptics. It also involves being a responsible citizen who strives for environmental sustainability and adds value to the industry as well as society. Doing all the above, while one is still under 35, calls for special recognition. The Way Ahead—a publication of, for, and by energy young professionals—is proud to announce the “TWA Energy Influencers 2020,” who through their actions and impact, help articulate the “North Star Vision” of our industry.” -Asif Zafar, Editor-in-Chief, TWA Editorial Committee
