GET addresses the critical challenges and opportunities to decarbonise industry and accelerate the global energy transition.

The Global Energy Transition Congress & Exhibition (GET), currently underway in Milan, Italy until July 3, is a premier event that brings together thought leaders, innovators, and industry experts from the energy, hard-to-abate sectors, finance, and start-ups.

Addressing more than 16,000 energy leaders and innovators at the Opening Ceremony in Milan, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair set the tone for the inaugural 3-day event in an engaging conversation. “The energy transition has begun, it is just not happening fast enough. We must focus on the practical solutions, around financing and technology, and how we help the industry find a path where they can both run a successful business and play a part in the energy transition. The policies have to be radical, but they also have to be sensible,” Rt Hon. Blair said.

GET addresses the critical challenges and opportunities to decarbonise industry and accelerate the global energy transition, serving as a vital platform for networking, knowledge exchange, and showcasing low-carbon solutions and decarbonisation technologies that will shape the future of the energy transition worldwide. With a focus on achieving net-zero emissions, GET is set to attract participants from diverse sectors and countries to foster collaboration and drive meaningful change.

Over three days in Milan, the GET Congress and Exhibition brings together international energy ministers, CEOs, and energy transition experts from across the energy value chain and carbon intensive industries. This community of experts share tangible, scalable and pragmatic approaches to accelerating the energy transition.

There are three key components to the conference programme: The Strategic Conference; Roadmaps to Net Zero Conference; and Project X-change. The Strategic Conference includes the opening ceremony, keynote addresses, ministers in conversation and CEO-lead panels. With contributions from executive leaders from multiple industries, investors and entrepreneurs, these discussions inspire authentic action on the energy transition.

Roadmaps to net zero conference

The Roadmaps to Net Zero conference has been curated via an international call for papers, where more than 500 papers were submitted from four continents and 52 countries. The presentations outline pragmatic roadmaps for a new, sustainable energy system-of-systems. They examine potential obstacles to success and proven means of navigating the energy transition efficiently and effectively. Sessions are also focusing on the capital, engineering, science and technology needed to effect change at scale and pace.

Project X-change

The Project X-change theatre meanwhile showcases the world’s leading multi-stakeholder projects and decarbonisation initiatives. Compiled via the international Call for Projects and selected via peer review, these presentations inspire scale-up, replication and adaptation.

COP28 delivered the UAE Consensus with an unprecedented reference to the transition away from fossil fuels as well as encouraging parties to accelerate ‘ambitious, economy-wide emission reduction targets.’ As the global energy transition gains pace, the GET Conference and Exhibition is a unique international forum for converting commitment into action. The convergence of multiple factors has brought the world to an inflection point, where the scale of the opportunity is matched only by the consequences of failure. Transformative progress on climate can only be achieved by breaking down silos and bringing industries closer together.

GET is aimed at removing barriers and facilitating dialogue, unblock bottlenecks and solve common problems to create real change – an ambitious roadmap to accelerate the global energy transition that has never been attempted before on such a scale. Register as a delegate, and hear insights from 300+ expert speakers, including energy ministers, CEOs and global business leaders.
