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 post-COVID-19 recovery period and the current geopolitical situation will bring extra challenges and opportunities to this financial transformation of the European economy.

During the programme, veteran energy policy expert Bert Stuij will give you on an in-depth look at the financing of the energy transition. Financial experts from Deloitte, ABN AMRO, RVO & Edelweiss Renewables Advisors, and other leading organisations will discuss the latest developments and trends on financing new energy projects.

About the programme

With climate policies and targets largely in place, the key to the next phase of the global energy transition lies in generating the massive investment needed to accelerate sustainable energy production and distribution and boost energy efficiency.

Energy policy expert Bert Stuij takes participants on a tour of the energy value chain, with a special focus on the financing and investment requirements of the energy transition. He discusses how financing is organised and what opportunities exist, how recent developments, such as the post-COVID-19 recovery period, the Russia-Ukraine crisis and the current geopolitical situation, the EU Green Deal are likely to impact the financing of sustainable energy markets and technologies.

This programme integrates the benefits of theoretical material, practical study cases, and discussions, where actual examples will be contemplated.
