ADIPEC 2023 Strategic Conference Overview
Energy markets are facing significant challenges, accompanied by geopolitical shifts affecting global economic growth and energy security. Amidst the uncertainties, there is an increased focus on climate change, sustainability and the reassessment of investment priorities in energy markets.
Leaders, organisations and businesses are expected to clearly articulate strategies and commitments on sustainability, climate change and decarbonisation. New technologies, strategic investments, low-carbon solutions and government policies are setting the pace for change, creating a new energy ecosystem designed to meet society’s climate expectations.
To address the structural shifts, industry challenges and market disruptions, energy companies have no choice but to reinvent themselves. Priorities include transforming the value chain, connecting and integrating upstream and downstream operations, reducing or eliminating emissions, remaking the customer experience and optimising costs.
These challenges, coupled with the broader energy transition, will require a new generation of leadership to manage through the different realities of the changing global energy landscape.
Management teams will need to navigate political and market volatility and embrace operational agility, workforce diversity, the transition from an analogue to digital organisation, and a focus on the customer and their need for low carbon, or no carbon energy solutions.
The ADIPEC Strategic Conference will bring together policy makers, energy leaders and industry professionals for an unparalleled opportunity to share insights on the latest trends affecting the global energy system.
