The Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum in Abu Dhabi is the premier international gathering of government, industry, and thought leaders to set the global energy agenda for the year and anticipate and respond to the dramatic changes in the world of energy. Convened in partnership with the Ministry of Energy of the United Arab Emirates, ADNOC, and Mubadala, the forum precedes the World Future Energy Summit and Abu Dhabi Sustainability week.
Forum participants consider disruptive trends in energy systems and technologies, and examine oil, gas, nuclear, and renewable energy market developments in the context of major political and security challenges. The 2018 forum will focus on three key themes: the geopolitics of the energy transformation; the electrification of everything; and financing and governance mechanisms for the future energy mix. As part of the agenda, we will highlight the role of women leading in the energy sector.
For a second consecutive year, the forum will be held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces, and CNN International will serve as our international media partner.
