DNV GL’s Energy Executive Forum is an annual gathering of C-suite executives actively engaged in defining the future of energy. It is not a trade show. Our energy executive community finds value in the open interchange of ideas across a spectrum of industry sectors, from IoT, to utilities, distributed energy providers, and retail energy providers. While no single person or organization has the answers for what the future of energy will entail, Forum attendees glean new insights from the conversation.


Who's Going

A gathering of executives across sectors.

When top executives get out of their silos and put their heads together, amazing things happen. Surprising new connections are made. New ideas spring up. Different vantage points, combined, lead to a clearer perspective on market shifts. There is simply no replacement for it.

Our mix of attendees includes Director-level and above executives across retail energy, distributed energy, utilities, and a broad category of the Internet of Things—that is, all the verticals seeking to redefine energy through new technologies and services.

The Forum Advisory Board

The Energy Executive Forum brings together executives from across the energy value chain to discuss the changing energy landscape and how energy players are adapting and refining business models for future success. Our Advisory Board consists of energy sector leaders, coming together to help guide and form the industry dialogue around the energy transition.
