ESCP Europe Experts to attend the FT Digital Energy Summit in London

We are delighted to announce that ESCP Europe Business School and its Research Centre for Energy Management (RCEM) will be taking part as a Supporting Partners at this year’s FT Digital Energy Summit event taking place on 19th September at the Etc Venues St Paul’s. The School and Centre will be represented by its Faculty and staff members.


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.

The FT Digital Energy Summit will 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. We invite you to visit the event's website for more information.

Key sessions at this year’s event include:

  • Future outlook: How will digital continue to impact the future worker and workplace and what will they look like?
  • Scoping the future of the energy sector: Scoping the impact of digitalisation on current and future business models within the energy sector
  • Thought leadership: How to create digital experiences that transform the relationship between brand, consumer and employees
  • Digital dialogue: Managing disruption internally: How can people, processes and technology be aligned
  • 360 degree panel discussion: What are the next steps for big data?
  • Putting the customer first: Enabling customer-driven design thinking
  • How can we attract millennials to the energy sector and how do we position and communicate digitally to make that happen?
  • Utilising machine learning, or artificial intelligence, to enable new business models and services
