NEW YORK – The Jerome A. Chazen Institute for Global Business today announced it has signed on as an Associate Sponsor of the Financial Times Live: Energy Transition Strategies Summit, taking place on December 1 and 2, 2020. The two-day, virtual event will bring together a distinguished panel of policymakers, industry experts and investors, who are navigating through a period of massive disruption in the energy sector.
The global digital summit will explore whether the coronavirus pandemic will hasten the move away from fossil fuels and accelerate a transition towards cleaner energies, or whether green investment will slow as cheaper, less efficient energy becomes a necessity as companies and countries strive to recover from the economic turndown. These questions lie at the heart of the debate as keynote speakers and panelists consider fallout from the crisis and what it means for the global energy transition.
“This is a critical moment, not only for energy companies, but also for the world economies,” said Glenn Hubbard, Faculty Director, Chazen Institute for Global Business. “Understanding the intersection of economic and energy priorities at this moment in time is where the Chazen Institute is uniquely positioned to provide attendees with insight.”
The Chazen Institute will contribute to the stellar lineup of speakers on both days. On December 1, Glenn Hubbard will host an exclusive, invitation-only roundtable with event delegates. Chazen Senior Scholar Geoffrey Heal will participate in a fireside chat, moderated by FT US Energy Editor Derek Brower, on December 2.
