Resetting the
energy system

A bold new approach

The Citizens Energy Congress will connect the fragmented, divergent and polarising perspectives around energy 

It will accelerate the industry’s response to growing pressure for a bold new approach to how energy is produced, distributed and consumed. 

Whilst the 2021 edition of the Citizens Energy Congress ran virtually and played a crucial role in connecting views on energy related questions, the 2022 edition will return in-person, to continue the dialogue and enable the many stakeholders to develop the new strategies, pursue greater collaboration and accelerate the innovations necessary for the energy industry to evolve and advance in ways that society deems acceptable and sustainable.
