EE Global offers discussion-based sessions that put YOU, the attendee, at the center of the conversation rather than listening to canned pitches and viewing lengthy PowerPoint presentations. Delegates will tackle pressing issues alongside senior energy officials, business executives, efficiency advocates, and academic experts who will serve as thought leaders and conversation starters in broad-vision plenary and executive dialogue sessions.

Intensive Learning Sessions offer high-level insights from business, policy, and environmental leaders at the helm of the global energy efficiency movement. Executive Dialogue sessions provide an intimate setting to discuss timely topics in every end-use sector.

We are proud of the Forum we’ve cultivated over the last decade. And, while we will remain true to our hallmarks, we are also driven to innovate. This year our plenary sessions will offer increased audience participation and discussion. For the first time, EE Global 2017 will feature speed-networking sessions, further enhancing the business-government-advocate interactions that have made us unique.
