Multidimensional Energy Transition: Markets, climate, technology and geopolitics

CERAWeek 2024 will explore strategies for a multidimensional, multispeed and multifuel energy transition. The drive for energy transition is reshaping the competitive landscape for companies and countries – creating new opportunities and risks across the energy value chain. The imperative to reduce emissions has grown in urgency. Yet expectations of a simple linear global transition have been shaken as climate goals compete with concerns over how to deliver economic growth while ensuring energy security, energy access, and affordability. The multidimensional energy transition reflects different realities and timelines by region, technology, industry strategies, the variety of social and political approaches and divergent national priorities in an increasingly multipolar world.

CERAWeek 2024 will offer insight into the road map for a multidimensional transition – what it means for markets, geopolitics, investment, supply chains and technology – and competitive strategies. As the first major global energy gathering post-COP28, CERAWeek 2024 is a timely opportunity to share learnings, plans, and perspectives on the road map ahead. Join preeminent thought leaders from energy, finance, technology, and governments who will convene for dialogue on the agenda ahead as the world enters a new era of energy transition.
