Nordic Energy Forum brings together decision makers in Helsinki

The Nordic Energy Forum will meet on 29-30 October, bringing together decision-makers and leaders from the Baltic energy sector at the Vanha Ylioppilastalo in Helsinki. The event provides an excellent opportunity to network, connect with new contacts, and be updated on energy trends and innovations.

The two-day program covers a wide range of topics involving the entire energy sector. The discussions will address the future of the industry, innovation, changes in legislation and new business models. The presented perspectives will focus on various fuel and product solutions, equipment manufacture, and social decision-making.

Over 30 experts from the energy field will speak at the event. One of the most anticipated speakers is Angela Wilkinson, President of the World Energy Council, who will present the WEC’s latest Energy Scenarios. WEC scenarios are developed by a large number of professionals in their field and are a unique concept in the energy industry.

The program will also feature the EU Climate Vision, presented by Artur Runge-Metzger, Director, DG Climate Action, European Commission, and Climate Strategist. The EU is committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, which aims to curb global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Runge-Metzger will explain how the EU is set to achieve these goals.

Climate change mitigation has affected the entire energy sector, wherein fossil fuels have to be replaced by other energy sources. As we move towards carbon-neutral energy production and consumption, energy systems are fundamentally changing. The new systems are decentralized, variable and intelligent.

Change to low-emission energy is a complex process that requires efforts from all actors. Innovation and experimentation are key, as energy systems are diverse and change cannot and does not happen in an instant. The world is changing: big data, machine learning, artificial intelligence and blockchains have opened up new opportunities for sustainable energy production and use.

The Nordic Energy Forum is organized by the nearly 100-year-old World Energy Council (link: https://www.worldenergy.org/), an energy cooperation organization that includes 100 countries. Ever since its inception, the World Energy Council has offered a unique platform for global energy leaders to explore new energy futures, critical innovation areas and new strategies.

Globally, the World Energy Council promotes different approaches to energy, whether based on new smart technologies, storage, electrification, or even the hydrogen economy. The diversity of solutions requires networking and collaboration, the very same things for which the organization was founded almost a hundred years ago.

We warmly welcome you to network with peers and experts at the Nordic Energy Forum on 29.-30.10.2019.
