Clarion Energy today unveiled Enlit – the new name for European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe.
And over the next 12 months, it will roll out Enlit across three continents.
In front of 18,000 industry leaders on the second day of this year’s European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe in Paris, Clarion said Enlit would be “the world’s only complete energy event. It will bring clarity to the global energy transition and define the roles of all those involved in powering the next generation of the industry”.
European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe director Paddy Young said that the energy transition “is defining the way we harness, trade, deploy and use energy, which is changing radically, rapidly and continuously.”
“From source to generation, to grid to the consumer, the boundaries of the sector are blurring, and this evolution is being shaped by established players, external disruptors, innovative start-ups and the increasingly engaged end-user. Enlit will bring together all of these influencers to seize current opportunities, spotlight future ones, and inspire the next generation to join the journey.”
Young said visitors to Enlit “will enjoy a truly inspirational and immersive experience with content created and curated specifically for tomorrow’s new energy professionals, while Enlit exhibitors will have unprecedented access to the people driving the future of the industry and the ability to reach a global audience under one brand”.
Clarion Energy Executive Vice-President and Global Managing Director Duncan Reid added: “Enlit is a fantastic new brand for what is the most important and comprehensive event portfolio for the global energy industry. Over the next 12 months, we will roll out Enlit across three continents to unify seven brands: Power & Utilities Australia, Australian Utility Week and POWERGEN Australia in Melbourne in August, Asian Utility Week and POWERGEN Asiain Jakarta in September and European Utility Week and POWERGEN Europe in Milan in October.”
The power and energy industry has welcomed the new Enlit brand. Enel Foundation, the non-profit research and education organization which joined forces with Clarion as exclusive Global Knowledge Partner of its Power and Energy event series, believes Enlit will be a platform that will support the energy transition and promote sustainable and resilient development for all.
Enel Foundation director Carlo Papa said: “In this historical moment for our industry and our planet, getting stakeholders to unite behind accelerating the clean energy transition without leaving anyone behind is a global priority and Enlit perfectly represents this convergence space.”
