What is Powering Progress Together?
Powering Progress Together is a series of global events that sparks dialogue around the future of energy.
In locations around the world, business leaders, government officials and other experts come together to discuss how world’s vital resources of energy, water and food will come under growing pressure over the coming decades. They address the theme of resilience, considering how business and governments can be more resilient in increasingly volatile times.
The venues and presentation technology helps to immerse participants in an innovative environment. Speakers and panelists share their expertise and views, sparking new ideas and debate around potential solutions.
We broaden the debate beyond the closed forums via our social media channels.
