Keynote Panel Discussion
Energy Security, Supply Chain Constraints and the Energy Transition

Within the EU, cumulative capacity has risen from 104GW to 162GW over the past three years. That is equivalent to an annual growth rate of 15%, but the next four years of additions could fall short in several key EU countries.

IEA estimates show around $975bn was invested into power in 2022 (as of late June 2022) but this represents an under-investment compared to the $1.2tn needed to achieve governments’ carbon reduction policies and pales next to the $2tn needed to reach net zero. We’ve seen larger funds being gathered and global fund managers moving renewables up their list of priorities. In this session, we will hear from some of the largest fund managers about how they think we can scale up investment needed to hit net zero.

  • How can the renewables industry rise to meet demand for energy and REPower EU targets?
  • How will the cost of raw materials and their availability affect the economics of solar and storage moving forward?
  • Which key raw materials might be subject to shortages?
  • Will limits on the global supply chain put the march to net zero at risk?
  • What investors and governments could do next to ensure a stable transition
  • Network capacity, curtailment, bottlenecks and delays - developing a solid plan to deal with these issues
