Europe Energy Week | June 15 - 17, 2021 

Shaping the Energy of Tomorrow

Europe Energy Week is a three-day virtual conference that will take place from June 15-17, 2021, to tackle the tough challenges the entire energy industry is facing today. How can we meet the growing demand for electricity and protect our climate at the same time? How can we build new energy systems across the globe and combat climate change by making sustainable, reliable, and affordable energy possible? What is Europe’s role in this transformation?

During the three-day session, we will discuss the regional challenges and opportunities facing the energy sector in this journey of evolution and transformation towards decarbonized energy systems

The conference will feature insightful panel sessions for the future of the energy industry. It will also connect global energy businesses, market leaders, policy makers and government representatives, to structure new energy business models, to devise strategies, and to energize societies as we forge ahead on this exciting journey. 


We look forward to hosting your participation and facilitating the conversation on our journey to a carbon-neutral world together. See you at the conference!

9.30 – 10.00 CEST           

THOUGHT STARTER: What if we miss the energy transformation?
Moderated interview will give “food for thought” if Europe is ready for energy evolution and what are the missing milestones in this process. While focusing on the entire perspective of energy challenges, this session is meant to be mind-opening and to address the urgency of dealing with climate change. Moreover, we will address sustainable energy and readiness of the key stakeholders for transforming how we generate and use energy.

KEYNOTE PANEL: How can Europe become the frontrunner in decarbonized energy?  

The EU has committed to becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. The transition to a zero-emission Europe will require significant investments, research and innovation, including new ways of producing and consuming energy. What is the role of businesses to support the green transition? How can policy makers foster private sector innovation and investment? Is Europe jointly taking the right steps at the needed pace, in order to become the front runner in decarbonized energy? This session will look at geopolitics, interdependencies, and relevant questions that lie at the core of a successful energy transformation.

How to build enough wind power to fuel the energy transition

Onshore and offshore wind will play a vital role in the decarbonization of our energy system. The targets set by the European Green Deal are extremely ambitious, but sticking to our current pace of installations will not get us there. This session will explore how the hurdles found within both market segments need to be addressed – and solved – to reach the estimated 700 GW of onshore capacity and 300 GW of offshore capacity by 2050, which are required.

INNOVATION TALK: The power of Artificial Intelligence

What is the role that artificial intelligence (AI) could play, and is playing, to combat global climate change? AI is currently posing challenges, due to its contribution to climate change of the greenhouse gases emitted by training data and computation-intensive AI systems. However, there are two crucial opportunities that AI offers in this domain: it can help improve and expand current understanding of climate change and it contribute to combatting the climate crisis effectively.
