Where global leaders engage in strategic dialogue about the future of energy.
Over 500 leaders from industry, academia, government and non-profit will converge at Stanford University's Global Energy Forum on May 6-7, 2020.
The by-invitation 2020 Forum focuses on the urgent, challenging issues facing global decarbonization and a rapid transformation of the global energy system, from scaling technology and innovation to finance and policy.
We hope you will join us and others in working to transform the energy landscape and secure the future of energy.
This year, we are excited to introduce the Global Energy Heroes prize. The prize focuses on young leaders (18-30) who are exemplifying passion, leadership, and innovative approach to energy transformation. The prize honors individuals (or groups) who have employed affordable, sustainable, scalable energy solutions that have significantly impacted their local communities. Three top winners will be presented with $20K cash awards at the May 2020 Forum. Prize submission opens in November.
