We must fix our energy challenges now, or our children will have no future.
Despite the great work being done by many, there’s a mountain still to climb.

As emerging market growth lifts millions out of poverty, the world’s energy needs are only going to grow.
The utility of the future will need very different skills and abilities to survive and thrive.
We need to break out of our silos and talk and debate across function, industry and geography.
