The Energy Transition Summit

The Energy Transition Summit 1

October 1-2, 2020 | Park Plaza London Riverbank | London, UK

We are in the midst of a dramatic paradigm shift. The way in which we produce, distribute and use energy will undergo a radical transformation over the next two decades. To succeed in transition, industry must come together to understand both risk and opportunity.

Reuters Events Energy Transition Summit (October 1st-2nd, London) unites 300 leaders and experts from across the energy spectrum to break news, set benchmarks and tackle the energy transition head on. In a period defined by uncertainty we can, together, lighten the way forward.

Combining onstage inspiration with offstage Chatham House Rule discussions, the two-day flagship will cover four key themes:

  • Leadership in the Age of Transition: With a series of critical tipping point approaching, are you ready to lead through the most transformative period of modern history?
  • Governance: Do we face a ‘governance deficit’? What are the driving governing forces and how do these differ internationally?
  • Financing the Transition: where will the funds come from and who will stake claim to projects that will redefine our industry?
  • New Energy Infrastructure: Knowing which technologies are ready for scale is key to understanding opportunity

Over the two days we will shed light upon how the transition will be led, governed and financed, offering a definitive guide to transition strategy and allowing industry to set its own targets. We are committed to enabling energy companies meet a uniquely difficult challenge. That is, to be both an energy company of today, and the energy companies of tomorrow.
