Global Partnership to make sense of the energy transition
Clarion is proud to announce Enel Foundation as exclusive Global Knowledge Partner of the 2019 Clarion Power and Energy series of events.
The deal will see Enel Foundation bring its unique scientific expertise to African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa in Cape Town in May, and the flagship European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe 2019 in Paris in November.
Enel Foundation will help to define, reinforce and validate the programmes of the events, which are designed to navigate the convergence of the generation and transmission & distribution sectors in the energy transition.
The Knowledge Partnership will reinforce the connection between industry, academia and research institutions, and Enel Foundation will join the Advisory Committees of the conferences and present its own research and scientific papers at the events. In addition, Enel Foundation will support Initiate!, as part of the mentors and panel of judges connecting new generations to the challenges and opportunities of energy transition.
