Energy Transition Forum Limited
Generating innovative thinking or a timely transition to a secure, low-carbon, and affordable energy future The ETF was init
The ETF was initiated in 2012 by the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) under the management of Miriam Maes and continued in full autonomy by Miriam from 2015 onwards when the GMF decided to concentrate on issues of International Relations. The ETF provides a platform for structured dialogue amongst leaders from the private/public sectors in the US and Europe about the market conditions and policies needed for a timely transition to a secure, low-carbon, and affordable energy future. To date, the ETF has sought to generate frank discussion, innovative thinking, and concrete solutions and actions around how the United States and Europe could work together to achieve a timely and responsible transition to a low-carbon global energy system. The ETF does this by generating a facilitated and off-the-record dialogue between some of the US and Europe's most influential energy leaders (C-level) from the private and public sectors, academic thought leaders, and subject-matter experts. It looks at understanding the impact of the latest energy challenges, the new market entrants, and energy technologies to define potential solutions in terms of new market financial mechanisms, new business models, and innovative policies and regulations. Participants are invited on a "Personal Invitation Only" basis.
