FT Digital Energy Summit

Tracking the Impact of Digital Innovation in Energy

ESCP Europe Business School and its Research Centre for Energy Management are proud to support the FT Digital Energy Summit.

Digital transformation is shaping business models across the energy sector. Digital transformation strategies must be driven from the top and delivering an optimum digital experience is critical. People, processes and technologies should be aligned to build capability and enable transformation across the business. Energy companies need to know how digital tools and platforms can help them engage with customers and employees - particularly millennials, provide value-added interactive services, drive efficiency, and lower costs.

Taking place on 19th September 2017, the FT Digital Energy Summit 2017 will continue to bring together over 150 decision-makers from the digital energy community, including market dominators, brand challengers, innovators and cross-industry thought leaders, to share and discuss the impact of digital on transforming business models and the future direction of digitalisation.
