The road to 2050, digitalisation of the energy sector, and financing the future of energy are three key themes of this year’s Global Power & Energy Leaders’ Summit, taking place at GPEX 2018, in Spain.
GPEX 2018, alongside Gastech in Barcelona, Spain (17-20 September), will spearhead a more sustainable, low-carbon and smart energy system through its newly released conference programme agenda.
The modernisation of the energy system is taking place simultaneously with a shift to a low-carbon economy. With the increasingly central role of digital technologies, the power and energy industries need to adapt their business models and embrace innovation, within the new energy landscape, to remain competitive, become more efficient and adapt to the growing needs and demands of their customers.
70 transition experts from international power and energy business will speak, including:
· Agustín Delgado Martin, Chief Innovation and Sustainability Officer, Iberdrola Group
· Neil Chatterjee, Commissioner, US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)
· Toshiro Kudama, Chief Power Development Officer, JERA Co., Inc.

Participating companies include EDP Renevaveis, InnoEnergy, Innogy, Alternative Energy Innovations, and A.T. Kearney Energy Transition Institute.
