The world economy has been fundamentally transformed by COVID. While employment and consumption patterns have changed and accommodative fiscal and monetary policies are shaping long term investment decisions, the energy sector is putting enormous volumes of capital to work right now. The decisions we make in the short term, during the recovery, will shape the future of energy for decades to come, including the world’s prospects of reaching Net Zero emissions in the long-run.
The Aurora Spring Forum is the leading annual gathering of the European energy industry. The 7th Spring Forum explored the energy sector’s role in the global economic recovery, and the opportunities and challenges arising from it, with particular focus on rebooting the economy, and reducing emissions.
Within a full day of intellectual engagement, thought-provoking analysis, premium debate and networking, we set out to shed some light on one of the central issues of our age – the role of the energy sector in advancing a just, prosperous society.
Our programme welcomed many of the sector’s leading voices, including the French Minister Delegate for Industry – Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Andreas Nauen, Kate Ringrose, Nora Mead Brownell, Rui Teixeira, Alistair Phillips-Davies, Markus Krebber, and Natalie Adomait.
Special thanks to our Spring Forum 2021 partners!
The partnership with Barclays, Greencoat Capital, MUFG, Osborne Clarke and RWE builds on many years of fruitful cooperation, and we would like to thank them for supporting the Aurora Spring Forum 2021.
And of course, thanks to all those who joined us on Wednesday 29 September and we we look forward to welcoming you all next year!
