International Energy Week 2024
In search of the energy transition
The global energy system has proved itself capable of responding fast to immediate geopolitical shocks. In the face of the crisis precipitated by the Ukraine conflict, conventional energy markets have struggled but largely adapted to the new reality, with unprecedented changes in global trade flows, albeit at a huge cost to consumers.
But in its response to the climate emergency, the energy system is stubbornly resisting the permanent transformation required. Almost a decade on from the Paris Agreement and with dangerous climate impacts now hitting every continent, fossil fuels continue to dominate more than 80% of the global energy mix. Despite record growth in renewable electricity, emissions from energy continue to increase. In addition, hundreds of millions of people still don’t enjoy the benefits of access to sustainable energy.
Given the scale of this challenge and the long lead times involved, we are losing ground in the race to net zero by 2050. The technologies exist and the costs are falling. So what’s holding us back?
Convened by the Energy Institute’s sector experts and informed by the EI Statistical Review of World Energy, International Energy Week 2024 will be the biggest global energy meeting following the first UN Global Stocktake and other outcomes from COP28 in Dubai.
It will focus on identifying and overcoming the barriers standing in the way of accelerating the global energy transition – from policy and regulation to finance and accountability, from energy efficiency and shifting demand, to human behaviour and workforce challenges.
Building on the renowned legacy of IP Week, the conference brings together senior figures from across the energy industry, investors, government, academia and NGOs. It’s where the latest strategic thinking, intelligence, and opportunities are shared, and collaboration happens.
Over three days of high-profile keynotes, panel discussions, and networking, and culminating in the prestigious International Energy Week dinner and awards ceremony, the week attracts more than 1,000 delegates from around the globe.
It is the essential annual fixture for those leading on corporate strategy, business development, and technological innovation, those wanting to retain a competitive edge, and anyone seeking insight into the great challenges facing humanity.
Can't join us in person? We will also be streaming the entire event on our online platform RD Mobile - select the online access option when booking. Delegates attending in person or online will have the ability to use the International Energy Week app, allowing access to the delegate list and the opportunity to connect with others.

International Energy Week
Transitioning out of crisis
Here's what people said about International Energy Week:
'There's no world we can live in where energy poverty can remain but we hit our climate goals. That's why gatherings like this are really important to have everybody in the room working to a solution. People just want power; they just want to live a dignified life - and you cannot live a dignified life without energy.'
'International Energy Week is really important because it's a place where you can bring that environmental imperative and the security agenda together and think about it in a holistic way.'
'This is one of the flagship events of the year in the energy sector, bringing together everyone from the power sector right through to oil and gas, and all the other new innovations coming through in the energy sectors.'
'Ground breaking line up...great to see both sides of the energy transition debate in the room together.'
