6th Annual Energy Day

The theme of the 6th annual HEC Paris Energy Day conference is about innovative technologies that will support a cleaner energy. The Energy and Utilities sectors are affected by pressing concerns including volatile commodity prices, increased competition, and significant capital costs. Additionally, today’s global energy demand puts considerable pressure on natural resources and environment, and we must reinvent the ways in which energy is produced, supplied, stored, and consumed. The value chains are increasingly becoming “digital” through technological innovations such as smart fields, smart metering, smart grids, or smart homes. Green energies have never been so competitive, but old actors are similarly innovating to improve existing technologies. So, who will guide this technological revolution, and how?

    ▪ Financing & Financers
    Aligning of the stars? Will the fall of prices of oil, gas, coal, electricity, as well as interest rates lead to an economic disaster for some players of the energy industry? What is the right forward? Should we have a Top-Down or a Bottom-Up approach? Re-involve private finance? Is the involvement of private investors a key for the success of financing future energies? Can we still count on public finance, expecting countries to finance the energy transition despite their high debt level? How can governments adjust policies and regulation to stimulate private investments?
    ▪Innovation
    New technologies or improvement of old technologies? What are these technologies and what is their impact? … In which sector? Who will support these new offers? Oil & gas / Electricity / Coal / Nuclear players? Will gas innovate, acting as a bridge to reinforce clean energy/storage? Will new actors survive, or will traditional players dominate?…In which segment? Deployment strategy: where to start? Upstream? Midstream? Downstream? Final demand management? How impactful
    should these technologies be on volumes (demand management/decrease
    of primary or final energy), or on lifestyle?

Conference: When tech giants take control

Join the debate on Tuesday 21st February! Jeremy Ghez, HEC Paris Professor of Economics and International Affairs, will introduce his research on the rise of the tech oligopoly comprising Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple (GAFAs). The presentation will be followed by a conversation with LSE Professor Saul Estrin.

  • These giants are not only profoundly shaping the tech industry, but also redefining the notion of governance. Taken together, GAFAs generated $433 billion in revenues in 2015, putting them at the same level as a medium-sized economy in terms of financial weight and economic might.
    During the session, Profs. Ghez and Estrin will discuss what their sheer financial weight means to the global economy and society, from influencing personal behaviours to fostering new geopolitical trends.

    How are GAFAs influencing rules and priorities in our daily life?
    How do they reshape our perception of space and relationships?
    What role do they play in the emergence of worldwide geopolitical trends?
    Are GAFAs redefining the whole notion of power?
    ​The conference ​will take place at the London School of Economics and will be followed by a networking reception at The Marquess of Anglesey (39 Bow St, London WC2E 7AU)​.
