Providing the power and energy industry with leading-edge insights into global trends in energy transition, enabling technologies and strategic solutions
A.T. Kearney and the Global Power & Energy Exhibition 2018 (GPEX) are delighted to announce a strategic knowledge partnership, ahead of this September’s energy transition conference and exhibition. GPEX will provide a powerful platform for power, oil and gas and other energy companies, public sector institutes and key professionals to connect and engage in fruitful dialogue on the most pertinent implications of the accelerating energy transition. The event will bring experts from across the world to share their leading-edge insights, latest data and in-depth analysis into clean energy opportunities and challenges, to define a clear set of next steps for all stakeholders.
Richard Forrest, chairman of A.T. Kearney Energy Transition Institute, lead partner of A.T. Kearney’s Global Energy Practice says:
“The accelerating energy transition coupled with electrification and digitalization will fundamentally disrupt the energy value chain across the world. Technological advances will drive cost-effective alternative sources of energy altering supply dynamics of the market, and electrification will significantly alter the distribution, trade and use of energy. We are excited to collaborate with GPEX on these important topics and look forward to connecting with senior leaders from both businesses and public sector institutions to define the path ahead.”
Mr. Forrest is among 50 high-level speakers who will address 200 of Europe’s most influential power and energy policymakers and business leaders at the GPEX 2018 strategic conference. The A.T. Kearney Energy Transition Institute will feature alongside organisations including Gas Natural Fenosa, International Energy Agency, GE Ventures, Estabanell Energia, TenneT and ENTSO-E.
Stewart Bundock, Event Director at organiser, dmg :: events, says: “Our aim is to provide leaders from the energy value network with up-to-date information to support them in making informed decisions about the future of their businesses; and to discuss and evaluate projects, processes, successes and challenges within the global energy transition. As a market-leading provider of genuine thought leadership analysis, our partnership with A.T. Kearney will enable us to achieve these objectives, so we are delighted to be working so closely with their team of leading energy advisers, as we look forward to GPEX 2018 in Barcelona.”
Both the global commitment to reduce GHG emissions and the increasing role of digital technologies are driving major changes within the power and energy industry. GPEX and A.T. Kearney will jointly initiate a bespoke research project to explore the perspectives of energy professionals on digital opportunities. The results will be shared at the event along with a series of other insights which will be shared in advance of the event through webinars and reports. This will provide a strong foundation for leaders and innovators of the energy transition to discuss the challenges, solutions and opportunities of the changing energy landscape during GPEX 2018.
