Pulled in different directions by political inaction, new customer needs and Fridays for Future

When was the energy industry last in such a state of flux? While the German commission recently agreed to phase out coal by 2038, the outcome of the European Parliamentary elections and the Fridays for Future movement mean a question mark hangs over the decision. What are the implications for the energy industry? When will reliable parameters be established?

Despite all the uncertainty, now is the time for action. In the past few years, customer expectations have changed dramatically and new competitors are reshaping the market. At the same time, technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence are market-ready, unlocking a wealth of opportunities.

Leverage those opportunities now by refocusing business models, restructuring companies and cooperating with partners from other industries – such as the automotive or real estate sectors.

There is no better way to get the information and forge the contacts you need than attending the Handelsblatt Energy Summit (formerly the Handelsblatt Energy Conference) where leading industry figures meet with visionaries and politicians. We provide not only unbiased insights and credible news, but also the energy to power the economy.

According to them, the current system is incapable of managing the challenges posed by renewable energies. Will the industry succeed in moving away from coal without endangering supply security?

                          As 2015 came to a close, a cohort of heads of state and the world’s leading scientists, environmentalists and economists gathered inside a remodelled airport hangar on the outskirts of Paris to adopt the final text of the 21st annual United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21). The agreement was hailed for achieving unanimity around a substantive and comprehensive text and was celebrated as a game changer for how the world will address climate change.Continue reading
