From 10 to 12 January 2020, the Atlantic Council’s fourth annual Global Energy Summit will take place in Abu Dhabi, kicking off the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week again.
Once, the Forum will be held under the guidance of the Deputy Supreme Commander of His Highness Sheik Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates.
The three-day high-level conference brings together leaders from global and regional politics, business and thought to put the world energy outlook for the coming year and examine the long-term strategic and geo-economic implications of the evolving energy system.
The 2020 symposium will concentrate on the role of oil and natural gas in the energy transition, funding the future of energy, and interconnections in a new century of global politics. After the 2019 Global Energy Forum’s global emphasis on East Asia, the 2020 forum would emphasize South and Southeast Asia as a growing core of scarcity.
The 2019 Forum brought to Abu Dhabi over 500 energy and foreign policy leaders from around the globe, including CEOs, policymakers, global media and industry professionals.
The Forum is being held in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy and Industry of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Sharjah-based Crescent Pe.
Forum 2020 will include speakers from the U.A.E. State Ministry and many other respected H.E. experts. Suhail Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy & Industry, UAE, greatly appreciates the partnership between the Atlantic Council and the UAE, recognizing that the insight brought to Abu Dhabi by its members for the World Energy Forum is key to helping us develop a better picture of the future so that we can resolve global energy issues together for the coming year.
Frederick Kempe, Chairman and CEO of the Atlantic Council, said: “Over the last three years, the Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum has put together government officials, policymakers, experts and entrepreneurs to formulate the energy policy for the coming year. Such significant groups from around the world may still be brought together by the 2020 conference to tackle the challenges and opportunities of the energy sector and shape the climate landscape. “Musabbeh Al Kaabi, CEO of Petroleum & Petrochemicals, Mubadala Investment Company, said:” In the global energy calendar, the Global Energy Forum is now regarded as a solid cornerstone.
Through fostering forward-looking discussion between policymakers and business executives, the Forum aims to harness the possibilities that result from the dramatic changes in the global energy market and form results that make us all safer and more competitive.
