The energy transition is the revolution of our time. But it comes with a deadline.
COP28 delivered a historic global commitment to shift away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy. At the heart of the matter is the world's unique opportunity to address immediate concerns related to energy security, affordability, economic growth and industrial competitiveness, while simultaneously pursuing the long-term goal of ensuring a livable planet for future generations.
But what does it take to deliver a successful energy transition that benefits all? It takes adequate government policies, private sector investment, and societal engagement. It takes technological breakthroughs and democratizing solutions. And as the 1.5ºC pathway drives further away, it takes faster execution.
In this year’s edition of the Business Summit, we are taking the conversation one step further, looking into ways of how both utilities and businesses can accelerate the energy transition, unraveling the latest technologies and business models shaping the energy future.
On the second international edition of the EDP Business Summit, we brought together more than 1.000 participants from over 20 countries to learn how leaders and companies could harness the vast potential of decentralized solar power generation. This year, we embark on a global mission. The entire energy system must be transformed worldwide. And every organization faces a unique confluence of change, risk and reward.
Reflecting on the biggest challenges and opportunities facing worldwide leaders as they plan and execute their decarbonization strategies, the third edition will take place digitally on the 7th of March 2024.
A unique half day with internationally renowned speakers, thought provoking keynotes and transformative debates, we hope will spark collective decisions on behalf of a sustainable future for all.
