4-7 October | Online

Before covid-19, the demand for fossil fuels was already dropping. In 2018 coal’s share of the global energy supply fell to 27%, the lowest in 15 years. Oil futures fell in late 2018, and slumped heavily in the early days of the pandemic before mounting a recovery from May 2020.

Now the world is in the midst of an energy shock that has the potential to speed up the shift to a more sustainable economy.

But the energy sector is complex and dynamic, and despite these trends, the demand for energy has never been higher. For the world to have a chance of keeping global warming in check, the energy transition that is underway will need to be larger, quicker and more widespread than any before it.

In its upcoming Future of Energy Week, The Economist Events will invite policymakers, energy experts, business leaders, academics and scientists from across the region to discuss the concept of energy transition, examine the issues that need to be overcome and explore what a change in the energy system means for Asia and the world.

Carbon Tracker’s Kingsmill Bond will be speaking at the event. More information coming soon.
