Jean Rogers, Gabriel Kra, Iggy Bassi and others join Ireland’s Prime Minister Micheal Martin to discuss the new pace of energy transition.
As Russia begins to turn the screws on European oil and gas customers in a dramatic escalation of its invasion of Ukraine, the need to urgently transition to clean energy is dominating headlines across the continent and the world.
Against this extraordinary historical backdrop, Callaway Climate Insights is thrilled to announce our second Dublin Climate Summit on May 12, and first one to be held in person in Ireland, as well as virtually.
We’ve assembled an A-list of international speakers and sponsors, including Jean Rogers, senior managing director at Blackstone (BX), Paschal Donohoe, president of the Eurogroup of finance ministers, Iggy Bassi, CEO of climate intelligence company Cervest, and Gabriel Kra, managing director of Prelude Ventures. The conference will be opened by Ireland’s Taoiseach, Micheal Martin.
Kay Harrison, New Zealand’s minister for climate change will also be there, discussing the impact of climate change in the Asia-Pacific region, and what governments can do to speed the transition process.
We’ll also discuss the roles and responsibilities of the media in covering the energy transition story and the impact of global warming with Irish television presenter Miriam O’Callaghan leading a panel of experts from Irish public service broadcaster RTE and The Independent, our media partner.
Details on the event and registration forms for both in-person and virtual attendees is available here: The Dublin Climate Summit 2022. Attendance is free!
Stephen Rae, our European bureau chief, partner and co-host of the summit, and our team in Dublin and I are thrilled to finally be able to hold a live conference, and it couldn’t come at a more vital time.
Decisions made in Europe and beyond this year about how fast to transition to renewable energy and what role oil, gas and coal will continue to play will be pivotal to our chances of keeping global warming within manageable boundaries; something it is currently threatening to go well beyond.
We’ll have more in coming days on speakers, topics, sponsors and how Ireland is taking a leadership role in Europe’s climate battle. And we hope to see you in May.
