24th World Energy Congress: Energy for Prosperity

The 24th World Energy Congress, held 9-12 September 2019 in Abu Dhabi, gathered thousands of delegates and visitors from around the world.

The 24th World Energy Congress explored transformational energy transition pathways that could offer new business opportunities while enriching the lives around the world and enabling whole societies to flourish, without prejudice in relation to any single source of energy.

An increasingly connected and environmentally aware global population, a new spirit of entrepreneurialism, and the rise of disruptive digitalisation are driving changes in the way we produce, trade and consume energy. The challenge is to deliver prosperity for all by harnessing the emerging promise of a new era of global abundance of clean and renewable energy sources and technologies.
