Event description


The Coventry University London Global Energy Summit (GES 2017) taking place in London Wednesday 26th July 2017 is a one-day summit for the energy, oil and gas industry. We offer a world leading forum where industry, government, academia and non-profits can engage, and connect to share knowledge with a capability to strengthen public policy, transform business practice, careers and academic capacity in a global context.

The summit will address latest developments, uncertainties, opportunities and strategies in the energy, oil & gas industry. Through a combination of intellectually stimulating keynotes, panel discussions and networking the summit will provide a platform to deliberate industry trends in an increasing uncertain world that calls for leadership.

The key discussion themes include the future of oil, strategies of key national, international and independent companies, geopolitics, insecurity, the effect of fluctuating oil prices, energy self-sufficiency, offshore, marine and gas technologies, climate change, finance and investments, decommissioning, competing conventional and unconventional sources, corporate social responsibility, philanthropy, infrastructure, game-changers, careers and human capital needs for the 21st century.
