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, coal, oil and gas 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.

And now the COP28 UAE Consensus makes the historic call for a transition away from all fossil fuels to enable the world to reach net zero by 2050.

Given the scale of this challenge and the long lead times involved, we are losing ground in the race to remove greenhouse gas emissions from our energy system. 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 was the biggest global energy meeting following the first UN Global Stocktake and other outcomes from COP28 in Dubai.

It focused on identifying and overcoming the barriers standing in the way of accelerating the global energy transition – from policy and regulation to finance and governance, from energy efficiency and shifting demand to capability, people and skills.

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.
