Drive the Transition, Deliver Change, Inspire

We cannot succeed in transition alone. Delivering a sustainable energy system for the future will require collaboration and action from across the energy, business and government ecosystems. Whilst the speed and timing of the transition will vary regionally, confronting the global threat of climate change will require global solutions.

Reuters Events' Global Energy Transition unites leaders and change makers from across the public and private sectors to shed light on the defining issue of our time and tackle the energy transition head on.

Run over five days and three time zones, The Global Energy Transition will define the future of our energy system, inspire a decade of action and prepare the sector for COP26, with diverse voices from around the word bringing passion, experience and expertise to deliver a new path forward.

The Energy Transition is upon us. The time for action has arrived.

Defining Pillars for Energy Transition 2021


The transition will demand rapid decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation of energy production, supply and consumption. How can companies navigate the most disruptive period in modern history, deliver upon their net zero goals and drive towards a sustainable low carbon energy future?


As our energy system evolves, customers, consumers and prosumers are becoming central to the transition story. What role will geopolitics and governance play in the transition, how will it affect our societies, cities, and mobility, and how can we ensure an inclusive and just transition that leaves no one behind?


The transformation of our energy system will have far reaching implications for the industrial, finance and associated business sectors. As countries continue to develop, industry represents the next frontier of decarbonisation. How can global businesses support the transition; how can the transition support global business?
