G3 Energy Summit: Are We Dreaming of Net Zero?

The G3 Energy Summit is an annual student-led Energy Conference co-organised by the Energy societies of LSE, Imperial and UCL on the current development in the energy sector. The summit was first held in 2016 and has continued its success every year. Now, it has been recognised as the biggest student-led energy summit across Europe, with over 150 students attending the summit every year. The G3 Summit brings together leaders from across industry, politics and academia to discuss trends and issues within the energy sector. The summit is ideal for anyone keen to learn about energy, regardless of experience or background. 

As news outlets and research papers report on global efforts to mitigate emissions falling short of Paris targets, it's easy to wonder: 'are we dreaming of net-zero?'

This is was theme of the 2021 G3 Energy Summit, which examined the uncertain nature of energy transitions on our path to a net-zero future. The conference brings together academics specialising in climate change and energy transitions, policymakers from the IPCC, energy industry professionals and passionate students like yourself to engage in enriching discussions on how we can realise the promises of low-carbon economies, especially after a worldwide pandemic. This is a must-go event for anyone interested in the energy transition and wants to meet likeminded professionals and students.

The 2022 edition of the G3 Energy Summit will take place in March. Purchase your membership and follow us on social media to be notified when applications open

Tennessee Petitjean

Tennessee is an MSc student enrolled in Political Economy of Europe at the European Institute. He has developed a strong interest of energy and climate policies, developing through his work experience at the Institut Montaigne, a French leading Think Tank, and by writing his previous master thesis on the energy and climate policy of the European Commission.  These experiences made him understand the importance of the interaction between private sector and public sector to find impacting solutions. He is now interested in tackling climate change by understanding technological innovations, as well as monetary and economic policies.  The energy society is the best place to combine different expertise of its members in order to have a global vision of the sector.

Alex Ku

Alex is a second-year BA Geography student. He has a strong desire to gain insight into the transition phase of energy sectors into renewables. In particular, his interest stems around discussing the specific energy generation method for different countries based on geopolitical and environmental factors. He is also willing to explore more and be open-minded to find creative solutions to energy-related environmental degradation. He believes that any action to combat climate change in the energy sector can only be effectively done through a top-down approach by large firms and governments. Therefore, he is passionate to learn more through managing the annual G3 summit and inviting representatives from numerous firms

Janina Szwedo

 

Janina is a second-year European Politics BA student at King’s College London. Studying in London, she is fascinated by the United Kingdom’s leading role in setting the academic and legislative trends for the European Union and the wider world. 

Simultaneously, she is driven to provide a solution for energy transformation and improvements in the new member states of the European Union and Eastern Europe. She believes that energy transformation should consist of both economic and security awareness. The European energy transformation, to be efficient, should include the realistic expectations of capacities and interests of each country. She is also fascinated by the geopolitics of energy and energy security, focusing on Russia-EU relations in her academic studies. 

Seeing the current generation shift in contemporary politics, she believes that a bottom-up approach towards raising awareness should stimulate top-down policies of governments and largest companies.

Beatrice Cardone

Beatrice is a first-year BSc Economics and Politics student at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She strongly believes that the main way to adapt to the changes and obstacles witnessed in the energy sector must be tackled by taking in account different fields simultaneously – economic, political, social and environmental. She is also incredibly captivated in understanding the root causes and possible solutions regarding the inequality of energy usage worldwide – specifically how an unacceptable proportion of the world population still has no/ minimal access to basic energy. This issue, combined with the concern for the need for sustainable green energy, are what she believes to be the current leading difficulties in the industry. She believes that interacting and working alongside people with similar interests but with different skillsets and backgrounds in the Energy Society is a significant way to begin exploring this intriguing sector in more depth.
