We’re excited to announce the 2020 Energy Future Forum will be held on September 24th from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM at Norton Rose Fulbright in New York, leveraging the global insight and networks of executives from across the energy value chain. DNV GL’s recent Energy Transition Outlook highlighted that the energy transition is fast, but not fast enough. Technology has the power to close the emissions gap, but only if governments, businesses and citizens act now. This year’s event will continue to adapt, along with the energy transition, to focus on how we can move forward together.
The energy transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy generation is building momentum, and its speed is increasing by the day. Like other technology transitions—as this evolution will ultimately be enabled by technology—there will be opportunities and challenges. There will be winners, and there will be losers. There will be questions asked and solutions found, often in surprising places.
The roadmap for the energy transition is still being created. Some routes are clear, while others will require exploration to find the best way forward. While the energy transition has a different meaning for everyone, it requires alignment across stakeholders to ensure that the way is clear of roadblocks.
Despite different needs, motivations, and rewards, there are common questions that need to be asked and answered as we move along this transition. We will explore many of these questions at the Energy Future Forum, including:
- What kind of technologies do we need to succeed in the energy transition?
- How do we finance the innovations, infrastructure, and improvements required for this massive shift?
- What does the grid need to maintain safety and reliability as renewable energy starts to dominate supply?
- What types of business models will succeed in the energy transition and benefit society?
We’re bringing together the major players—the doers and the heroes of the energy transition—to ask hard questions and find the right solutions. The energy transition is happening, but not fast enough. Will you help to move it forward?
Join us to forge the energy future together. Registration opens May 1st.
