The Strategic Conference

 The Global Power & Energy Leaders’ Summit will see collaboration between international power and energy leaders, who will come together to address the theme of the energy transition, examining the long-term change in the way that energy is produced, distributed and consumed.


The Summit will look at the energy transition in terms of where we are today, what steps can be undertaken in the near-term and where we will be in the 2030-2050 timeline. Regulatory, legal and market design issues will be addressed across the energy chain – from generation, through the transmission and distribution system, to the end-user.

Attended by over 300 leaders, and featuring 50 top-level speakers from across the power and energy sector, the summit is designed to ensure you meet with multiple potential business partners and existing clients during two days of high-level learning and corporate networking.
