The current and future role of energy investment, finance, and risk

Transitioning to a carbon-neutral economy will require trillions of investments in renewable energies and new technologies, making financing a key to the energy transition. How does this compare to the current role of energy, where fossil resources are still an important and essential part? And how sustainable will the future of finance be? The current geopolitical situation will bring extra challenges and opportunities to this financial transformation of the European economy.

During the programme, Kay van der Kooi, Senior Investment Banker at Triodos Energy Transition Europe Fund,  will give you an in-depth look at the financing of the energy transition. Financial experts from Deloitte, RVO & Edelweiss Renewables Advisors, and other leading organisations will discuss the latest developments and trends on financing new energy projects.
