Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership

About the Event

For the first time, our CEO-led alliance of leading global electricity companies unveil the findings of a customer-driven global independent study on beneficial electrification. Customers from around the world identified a wide range of benefits of electrification and ways to achieve them. We created this half-day event to seize the opportunity to keep the momentum towards accelerating the energy transition together.

What to Expect from the Event

Major utilities unveil global study findings on beneficial electrification in which customers from around the world are saying what they need to accelerate the energy transition.
The heads of leading world utilities will lead candid talks with other influential stakeholders in the energy landscape to offer a consolidated view on what it takes to create the conditions needed to drive electrification across sectors and unlock its benefits for all.
Discussion will illuminate possible ways we can join efforts and go forward to accelerate electrification of businesses and communities around the world.
