Shaping the Future of Energy

How can an effective transition to a more sustainable, affordable, secure and inclusive energy system be enabled?

Energy consumption and production represents around two-thirds of the global GHG emissions and 81% of the global energy mix is still based on fossil fuels, the same percentage as 30 years ago. 

A transition is needed to a more inclusive, sustainable, affordable and secure global energy system that provides solutions to global energy-related challenges, while creating value for business and society, without compromising the balance of the energy triangle (security and access/environmental sustainability/economic development and growth).

The Platform for Shaping the Future of Energy aims to accelerate development of the effective policies, private-sector action and public-private cooperation required to enable the energy transition.

Call for submissions!

We are searching for breakthrough energy related innovations from the last decade (2010-2020). The innovations must be either in pilot phase or commercial operation and should contribute towards the acceleration of the global energy transition.

Your submissions will be judged based on a number of criteria including potential for scale and potential for societal impact. Winning submissions will be published in a white paper in advance of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2020 in Davos-Klosters in January.

To be considered, please complete your one-page high-level document (based on this template) and share with Louise.Anderson@weforum.org before 13 September 2019.
