Energy Capital Leaders

 

 6-7 November 2018
Vienna

 Innovating Investment and Finance in the Energy Transition

 

What is the Energy Capital Leadership Forum 18?

The industry is at a crossroads, thanks in large part to the phenomenon of energy convergence, digitalisation and the changing habits of consumers.  For many years, utilities, gas operators and telecom giants have dealt with these changes within their own industry – labelling this trend simply as a transition. The new wave of change, however, is far broader.

Energy Capital Leaders explores industries that are overlapping and colliding, value chains that are being redefined.  It looks at how once would-be competitors are becoming collaborators, and how technology, economics and investment are making this all possible.

Energy Capital Leaders is where the world’s leading banks, tech firms and disruptive startups meet established power producers and developers, gas operators and distributors to create the blueprint for a future converged energy world.

Success Stories

“Thanks to the Energy Council for a successful conference.  The success of the panel discussion format really depends on the quality of the panellists, and the relevance and topicality of the subject matter, all of which were excellent.  The ground is shifting in the global gas industry, especially regarding gas to power in developing markets and Africa in particular.  Events like this are important for bringing stakeholders together, and help unlock the benefits that development of such projects can bring, so thanks are due to the Energy Council for this.”

Andrew Fisher

Senior Associate, The Energy Contract Company

“It was a pleasure to speak at the China Energy Assembly this year, a timely event to share views among policy makers and industry leaders on the topic of “China’s Energy Transition”.

Our Approach

The Energy Council reflects the continuing transformation of our industry.  Our membership is made up of incumbent utilities, telecom giants and executives from traditionally operated oil and gas sectors that have realigned their core businesses. They connect into one another, promising startups and funding sources.

Energy Convergence brings the industry together with the most influential investors from international public funds, leading Private Equity Finds, Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors.

Held across two-days alongside European Utility Week it will address not only how companies are partnering and converging in their verticals, but consider the convergence with different participants in the new energy system.
