Global Energy and Infrastructure Conference 2018

Clean and Secure Energy Through Innovative Technologies and Finance


We are in the midst of a substantive transition – a variety of international initiatives and organisations are setting the course for a clean, secure and affordable future of energy. Innovative businesses and private capital already realise enormous market potentials around the globe. However, in order to overcome global energy challenges – from access to finance and energy safety on the supply side, to infrastructure bottlenecks – all stakeholders will have to cooperate in an unprecedented manner. Exchange, innovate and network with key stakeholders from governments, business and finance for a clean and secure energy future!


  • Which financing models can best revive your energy infrastructure?
  • How to effectively blend private and public finance for large scale energy and infrastructure projects?
  • Which international and European finance can you tap for your energy and energy infrastructure projects?
  • What energy/infrastructure investment needs and business potentials currently exist in Africa, Central Asia and Europe?
  • How to foster job creation through the energy transition?
  • How can you ensure cost-efficient electrification through off-grid facilities?
  • How to find the right partners for solid and sustainable project implementation?


The Global Energy and Infrastructure Conference 2018 brings together high-level experts from key institutions and practitioners from across Europe, Central Asia and Africa. By providing insights into funding landscapes, hands-on implementation knowledge and opportunities to network with public and private partners, we provide a valuable platform for best-practice exchange and business matchmaking. The opportunity for exchange with high-level speakers and participants will facilitate face-to-face learnings between key stakeholders from within the energy and energy infrastructure sectors .
