But the energy sector is complex and dynamic, and despite these trends, the demand for energy has never been higher. For the world to have a chance of keeping global warming in check, the energy transition that is underway will need to be larger, quicker and more widespread than any before it.

The good news is that governments are committing to net-zero targets, technology solutions are being developed at breakneck speed, and investors are divesting from fossil fuels, reorienting capital towards cleaner and greener energy solutions to power our societies and economies.

The Economist Events will invite policymakers, energy experts, business leaders, academics and scientists to break down the concept of energy transition, consider the issues that need to be overcome and explore what a change in the energy system means for Asia and the world.

Who should attend?
• Business leaders and executives (managers, directors, c-suite) from energy/renewable energy companies, commercial and industrial, financial services
• High-level government representatives including ministers, policymakers, regulators, advisors, senior advisors, senior directors
• Chief executives, chief risk officer, chief sustainability officer
• Energy investors / sustainable investors
