What does the future of energy hold in store?

In 2019, together with the IESE Business School, we are launching Energy Prospectives, a series of high-level talks on the economic, technical and scientific conditions envisaged for the future of the energy sector.

Energy Prospectives gathers figures of recognised international standing due to their experience, vision and knowledge of the energy sector, bringing them closer to business leaders, regulators, executives and academics. 

These sessions, which are held on the IESE campus, involve two speakers moderated by an IESE professor, and after the presentations the floor is opened up for an open debate with attendees.
