An unprecedented alignment of the climate change emergency with economic and supply chain factors and national security drivers has turbocharged the energy transition, boosting the diversification of energy supply and increasing investment into clean energy sources. However, these combined forces have also triggered a nationalistic and protectionist approach, which has deepened supply chain fragmentation and threatens to drive up the cost of the transition and ultimately slow progress. Against this complex backdrop, how can the industry find the right balance between sustainability, security and affordability?
The 8th edition of the Financial Times’ Energy Transition Summit will bring together senior leaders from the energy industry spectrum, finance and business leaders from high energy consuming industries who are tackling this energy trilemma. Expert-led and FT-moderated panel discussions, keynote interviews and debates will provide key insights and practical takeaways on how to continue the acceleration of the transition and navigate the geopolitical, technological and financial challenges that leaders are facing.
