Energy Solutions Week
May 2-6, 2022

Where global leaders engage in strategic dialogue about the future of energy.



Energy Solutions Week
May 2-6, 2022

Stanford ENERGY industry partners will meet on campus for a week to explore with us Frontiers in Energy Technology. This by-invitation program will analyze advances in energy research and development, especially in AI, decarbonization, electric grid, hydrogen, natural gas, energy storage, and sustainable finance. We will highlight pioneering research projects expected to grow into significant research areas at Stanford. Participants will also engage with dozens of industry executives and start-up founders. To learn more about the program, click here.


Stanford Global Energy Forum
November 1-3, 2022

As the premier energy event at Stanford, the Global Energy Forum brings together a unique delegation of global citizens, industry leaders, energy experts, and innovative problem solvers to address the challenges of the transforming global energy ecosystem. After two postponements due to COVID, the Global Energy Forum resumes in November of 2022.

The world is facing the dual challenge of providing access to affordable and reliable energy for improving our quality of life, while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the global energy system with a sense of fierce urgency. This will require a major transformation of the global energy system, a sector worth more than $10 trillion per year. This dual challenge also offers the biggest opportunity of the 21st century. How businesses, nations, researchers and civic organizations seize this opportunity will impact not just our environment, but the global economy and national security.

The magnitude, speed and the nature of this energy transition is unique and unprecedented. Looking back in time for historic lessons will not guarantee future success. Solving the energy challenge will require innovations across science, engineering, business, law, finance and human behavior. To explore, understand and appreciate these innovations, we are launching Energy Solutions Week - Frontiers in Energy Technologies in May of 2022.

We hope that you will join us for Energy Solutions Week and other global programs such as the online Global Energy Dialogues and the live Stanford Global Energy Forums so that our current and future leaders can together explore, understand and help shape the future of energy. Read all.
