GPEX, the global energy transition event, welcomes UNECE as International partner

The organisers of the Global Power & Energy Exhibition (GPEX) have announced a partnership with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

With major changes in the political and corporate landscapes, the energy and power industries face challenges in shifting towards a digitalised, low-carbon energy system. To drive the sector’s transformation, renewable energy generation technology needs to be improved and new projects encouraged through effective regulation and policies and needed public and private finance. Energy and power infrastructure need to be modernised and adapted to cleaner energy sources to improve efficiency throughout the system and thereby avoid unnecessary waste. Businesses around the world are under increasing pressure to reduce emissions and transition to a low carbon economy.

The Global Power & Energy Exhibition (GPEX) will be held on 17-20 September 2018 at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, alongside the world-leading gas and LNG event Gastech. GPEX will be gathering international stakeholders from the energy and the power sector to discuss concrete ways of shifting to a clean and modern energy system. With a high-level programme and senior decision-makers within leading industry corporations and new disruptors, learning opportunities will be numerous, and enhanced networking will allow the creation of new partnerships.

As one of UNECE’s core areas of focus is sustainable energy, Scott Foster, the Director of the Sustainable Energy Division of UNECE, will speak at the GPEX Leaders’ Summit on 17 September 2018 on multisectoral collaboration driving the global energy transition.

Through its partnership with UNECE, GPEX will ensure the best industry experts attend the event and take active part in the conversations. Industry leaders attending GPEX are also invited to attend the Ninth International Forum on Energy for Sustainable Development, organised by UNECE in Kiev on 12-15 November 2018.
