Congress Highlights

Rotterdam welcomed nearly 4,000 attendees to the 26th World Energy Congress, where in a span of four impact-focused days we discussed the pressing issue of Redesigning Energy for People and Planet. Over those days, we engaged in important discussions, sharing insights and forging partnerships that will catalyse change across the globe.

Today, we keep celebrating the most visionary and truly inclusive world energy leadership convening that brought together all sectors, industries, technologies and geographies.

What a better way to look back at everything that happened during the Congress than with a video that encapsulates our journey together. Relive this memorable experience with us and enjoy the highlights.
