On March 21, the Cullen College of Engineering and the Rockwell Distinguished Lecture Series will present “America’s Energy Future,” a talk by Felipe Bayon from BP surrounding the future of the energy industry’s needs and challenges.

Bayon, who serves as Senior Vice President of BP America and heads the company’s Global Deepwater Response Group, will touch on his own personal energy industry experience spanning from Colombia to the United States as well as BP’s high-level view of the future global energy picture.

Additionally, Bayon’s lecture will focus on “the Great Crew Change,” the challenge of replacing the now-retiring baby boomers in the industry with a new generation of STEM-savvy professionals.

The Rockwell Distinguished Lecture Series is named for Elizabeth Dennis Rockwell, a UH alumnae, industry expert and philanthropist who passed away in 2011. The March 21 lecture will be held in Engineering Lecture Hall L2D2 from 2-3 p.m.
