PARTICIPATION. ENGAGEMENT. INTERACTION.
Three words which sum up what the BNEF Summit stands for. It is not a conference for the faint hearted, for those who like to be spoon fed ideas and processes through laborious PowerPoint presentations throughout the day.

The packed agenda is filled with opportunities for delegates to discuss and debate the key issues of the day within the clean energy industry amongst like-minded individuals from around the globe. It is about setting the agenda for the future of our world’s energy sources. That is why we talk about thought leaders – anybody who participates actively in the Summit can be considered by definition to be a global scene setter for their area of expertise.
INTERACTIVE SESSIONS & STUDIO DISCUSSIONS
Conversation. Dialogue. Debate. The Summit will be punctuated by plenary working sessions, strategy workshops, and studio discussions, each structured around key questions, technology evaluations, war games or possible scenarios. These sessions will leverage the breadth and seniority of participants and provide a structured opportunity for dialogue with thought leaders, keynote speakers and other participants.
KEYNOTE SPEAKERS & THOUGHT LEADERS
The Summit will include select keynote speakers and thought leaders from the world of industry and policy, whose views on the critical issues of today will help to identify the future challenges faced by the industry.
STRATEGY BREAKFASTS & BREAKOUT SESSIONS
A series of strategy breakfasts and breakout sessions will be held across the Summit, hosted and led by our senior Bloomberg New Energy Finance research analysts, to discuss the core industries and activities of the low carbon energy economy. Formats will include analyst presentations, industry panels, keynote speeches and participant debates.
