Here at the Center on Global Energy Policy, we conduct policy-relevant research, train the next generation of energy and climate leaders, and host convenings on the world’s most pressing energy issues -- and our largest annual event is coming soon.

Join us virtually May 18-20, 2021 as energy experts from around the world gather for our seventh annual Columbia Global Energy Summit. This year's Summit will focus on understanding trends shaping our current energy system, and what's ahead for energy policy, energy markets, geopolitics, technology and efforts to reduce emissions and address climate change.
