Leadership In the Age of Transition

We are in the midst of a dramatic paradigm shift. The world has awoken to climate change; the time for the energy industry to stand up and be counted has arrived. The way in which we produce, distribute and use energy will undergo a radical transformation over the next two decades.

Reuters Events Energy Transition Summit London unites leaders and experts from across the public and private sectors to tackle the Energy Transition head on; to shed light on the defining issue of our time and help energy companies meet a uniquely difficult challenge. That is, to be both an energy company of today, and the energy companies of tomorrow.

This 2-day strategic summit has been reimagined in the era of social distancing. Through adding a virtual element to our flagship summit, we will shed light upon how the transition will be led, governed, and financed for over 10,000 virtual attendees. We’ll establish what the future energy system will look like and offer companies, from across the asset spectrum, a definitive guide to their ET strategies via our bespoke digital conferencing platform and live broadcast.

The Energy Transition will be a period defined by uncertainty. We can, together, lighten the way forward.

Key Themes for London 2020; Setting the ET Business Agenda

Governance and Cooperation

Does the energy transition face a ‘governance deficit’? To understand how the energy transition will develop over the next decade, it is crucial to understand the driving governing forces behind it. Will the Green Deal provide the first domino, how can we ensure progress in the shadow of Aberdeen and ensure that we translate targets into action?

Financing Energy Transition

We must address the elephant in the room; who is going to pay for it all? An understanding of where the funds are likely to come from is key to staking claim to the infrastructural projects that will redefine the modern world in the 21st century.


New Energy Infrastructure

Low-carbon energy supply and consumption will need a radical overhaul of infrastructure. As well as revamping the old, we’ll need entirely new assets and new systems of energy delivery. It’s an unprecedented opportunity with estimated spending at $70 trillion over the next decade. Knowing which technologies are ready to be scaled first is the key to understanding opportunity

Business Model Innovation

Who will provide leadership through the age of transition and how do we want our future energy system to look? Speed and timing will be crucial if you are to stay on the right side of the transition. Join us in setting business led, evidence based, targets as industry drives towards net-zero
