12 March 2019: Plenary opening session ‘Looking ahead’

This session is all about looking forward and reviewing progress in the energy transition. Increasingly, this vision is dominated by consumers. It is our role to acknowledge their contribution – as it affects energy industry stakeholders, governments and citizens – and to credit consumers with demanding a more prominent role in the wider energy transition. In this session we will hear from representatives of leading international organisations, who will present developments that offer end-users choice and the opportunity to take responsibility for renewable procurement. The energy transition is taking place and the role of end-users, both large and small, cannot be ignored. Many players are taking action, but what more needs to happen to ensure we move far enough and quickly enough to ensure a successful energy transition?
