The Reinventing Energy Summit, with RE•WORK & New Scientist

If the last five years saw rapid change, the next five hold even more radical changes in store which is why the Reinventing Energy Summit is a must attend date in any energy customer’s diary.

By 2020, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar will be cheap and easy to manage. Technological advances, environmental concerns and political backing will drive their adoption around the world.

Renewable energy is entering a virtuous circle, with rising investment (over £15.2bn in the UK last year alone) and greater deployment bringing down costs. There is no better evidence of that than the Paris Agreement clinched in December.

Fossil fuels, in contrast, appear locked in a downward spiral, in which financial and political misfortune feed off each other.

As IEA executive director Fatih Birol put it, on the eve of the Paris climate talks:
“There should be no energy company in the world who would believe that climate policies will not affect their businesses. If any company believes that climate policies are [just] the issue of the NGOs and think tanks, they are making a grave mistake.”

If the last five years saw rapid change, the next five hold even more radical changes in store which is why the Reinventing Energy Summit is a must attend date in any energy customer’s diary.
