Today, it is widely recognised that we are on the brink of a new energy transition - heralded by our increasing reliance on low-carbon energy sources.

Global Energy Systems will focus on providing the key insights required by companies, organisations and investors under pressure from the changing energy situation.  This information will inform risk assessments and strategic decision‐making in light of current high energy prices and energy system vulnerabilities. This three day conference will look in depth at unconventional fossil fuels, the future of the electricity system and nuclear energy, and the economics and policy of energy systems.
