Industry leaders to speak at Wood Mackenzie’s European Power & Renewables Conference

Join executives from EDF Energy, Renewable Energy Institute and Société Générale as Europe’s energy sector gears up for critical transformation

LONDON/HOUSTON/SINGAPORE, 24 March 2022 – This year looks set to define the European power and renewables sector: an energy market that faces dangerously volatile energy prices, fears of 'greenflation' and rising geopolitical risks.

As European and national energy regulators, utilities, solar and wind developers and institutional and private investors determine how the renewables sector can evolve over the next decade to meet ambitious emission reduction targets, Wood Mackenzie will host European energy industry leaders at its European Power & Renewables Conference on April 25-26.

The hybrid in-person and virtual conference will bring together CEOs, policy-makers, entrepreneurs, investors, thought leaders and regulators to take stock of the dynamic and critical changes in green energy across Europe and the implications these will have on the renewables sector.

As well as exclusive presentations from Wood Mackenzie experts and a top-tier speaker line-up, including representatives from EDF Energy, Renewable Energy Institute, and Société Générale, the European Power & Renewables Conference offers the opportunity to connect with leading developers and utilities. Delegates will also connect with transmission operators, national and European energy regulatory bodies, investment entities and technology providers.

Each day will include a breakout session enabling delegates to connect directly with other attendees, Wood Mackenzie analysts, and exhibitors.

  • The Perfect Storm: Why 2022 Will Be A Pivotal Year For European Power And Renewables;
