Bernadette Johnson, vice president of strategic analytics for Enverus, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Johnson began her professional journey as a senior energy analyst at Bentek Energy LLC and later held the same title at Sasco Energy Partners LLC.
In 2012, just four years into her career, Johnson was given the opportunity to co-found Ponderosa Advisors LLC as a minority owner. She helped build the company into a successful energy analytics business that was sold in 2016 to Drillinginfo Inc., now known as Enverus.
“I always say it was luck as much as anything else, but when given the chance, I had the courage to jump in with both feet despite the risk and not knowing how it would play out,” Johnson recalls. “I am most proud of the success of the business both before and after acquisition.”
Baker Hughes on Dec. 11 revealed a significant new advancement supporting its commitment to achieving net-zero carbon equivalent emissions by 2050 by entering into an agreement to purchase 100% of its Texas electricity from renewable sources.
The dream of a battery-centric energy supply is seductive, but the reality is that proponents of such a transformation misunderstand the capabilities and limitations of battery technology.
A scientific “miracle” will have to happen in order for the world to achieve a new energy economy.
