Panel conversation – Building competitiveness – sustainability
Coupling energy transition and energy security in a time of global turmoil
Energy transition is the process through which we will shift the global energy supply from fossil to zero-carbon energy sources. Such a process will require investment and the deployment of new technologies, business models, policy, and regulatory frameworks – to be feasible and sustainable, such investments will require sound economic rationality. New global risks and sharp increases in energy prices have added complexity to that equation, in such a way that energy transition today needs to be fundamentally coupled with energy security – the affordable and reliable supply of energy. In this session, panelists will discuss how the world can address energy challenges and opportunities.
