EDP Business Summit '22

Leaders and Corporations committed to the Energy Transition

Here comes the sun


Leaders and companies from across the globe will gather to reflect on what it takes to accelerate and expand a reliable, carbon-smart solar future. Live from Lisbon and Online.

Leaders and Corporations committed to the Energy Transition

The energy market is going through unprecedent times. As we are already living with the destructive power of climate change, the high fossil fuel prices and energy security and affordability concerns came only to underscore the pressing need to move faster to a clean energy system.

Here comes the sun. With solar rising from the niche technology it once was, companies able to invest and reap the benefits of this form of energy production now will accelerate their energy transition and make the most of controlling price volatility through less reliance on the grid.

Last year, the first international EDP Business Summit gathered online over 700 participants from more than 25 countries to learn how leaders and corporations could accelerate Energy Transition. The second edition will take place in Lisbon on October 27th to inspire leaders on the crucial role of solar in reducing our global dependence on fossil fuels across all sectors of the economy and envision more sustainable futures.

An unmissable half day program with internationally renowned speakers, thought provoking keynotes and transformative debates we hope all find both insightful and actionable, as we carve our path together through the global Energy Transition.

EDP Business Summit: energía solar, almacenamiento y la importancia de la innovación

Los negocios nacen hoy no solo con el propósito de ser sostenibles, sino también de actuar en línea con los criterios ESG. Los factores medioambientales, sociales y de buen gobierno resultan, además, muy interesantes para los inversores. Actualmente, el 85% los tiene en cuenta para decidir dónde invertir, según un estudio global divulgado por el CFA Institute.
