Partnering With the World Economic Forum to Lead the Energy Transition

Submitted by fp-admin on Tue, 01/28/2020 - 13:34

Earlier this year, Sempra Energy joined the World Economic Forum (WEF) for the opportunity to work with industry peers, government leaders, academia and nonprofit organizations that are committed to improving the state of the world.

WEF is involved in major projects and initiatives very relevant to Sempra’s business. Examples include projects such as the advancement of hydrogen as an energy source of the future, cyber-resilience in electricity and the increasing importance of the global energy transition.

In North America, Sempra Energy is committed to leading the energy transition by investing in smart new infrastructure that better serves its customers and communities — and partnerships like this go a long way.

Solving Global Challenges in Davos

Last week, Sempra Energy attended the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. This is an important global event that allows industry leaders to tackle important challenges relevant to the energy industry.

“It’s clear from our conversations at the Annual Meeting that the global energy transition is underway,” said Jeffrey Martin, chairman and CEO of Sempra Energy. “Everyone is talking about how we can improve energy access, sustainability, affordability and resiliency. This confirms our company is focused in the right areas here in North America and that we are set up well in 2020 to have an amazing year.”

Martin recently published an article on how the private sector can lead the global energy transition on the World Economic Forum website.
