Financial Times – Energy Transition Strategies Summit
A major shift is underway in global energy markets, with the pace and scale of the energy transition now outstripping even the most optimistic projections. In a race to tackle climate change, dozens of the world’s biggest economies have adopted targets for net zero emissions by 2050 and are cutting fossil fuels and boosting clean energies. Investors are ploughing big money into technologies including hydrogen, carbon capture and long-duration storage that are considered necessary to do the ‘heavy lifting’ for the next stage of the transition. Meanwhile, carbon prices are soaring, and energy companies are recalibrating their strategies and business models for a net zero world with a new sense of urgency.
This digital FT Energy Transition Strategies Summit will explore the next big challenges in the energy transition, and how the forces of competition, consolidation and convergence will reshape energy markets in the years ahead. FT journalists, policy makers and industry professionals will consider the role for fossil fuels in a net zero economy, the challenges of scaling energy innovation, and the next wave of power system transformation in a series of insightful panel discussions and keynote interviews.
