Hosted by EDF in May – June 2018, the Paris Summit focused on global issues in the energy and electricity sectors, e-mobility, and the impacts of digitalization on the industry. GSEP CEOs were joined by leaders from the International Energy Agency, AccorHotels, AlixPartners, as well as Jean-Yves Le Drian (French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs), Nobel-prize-winning economist, Jean Tirole, and Hubert Védrine (former French Minister for Foreign Affairs).

The GSEP Chairmen closed the event with the issuance of the Paris Summit Statement,  which outlines the group’s positioning on efficient electrification of end-uses and the steps that governments could take to successfully accelerate adaptation of innovative electricity technologies.
