The Global Energy Council (GEC) provides a forum for engagement, networking and discussion, along with a quarterly report, for utilities, industrials and oil and gas majors. At the core are mobility and storage trends in the countdown to the 45% fall in global carbon emissions required to achieve net-zero by 2050, as outlined by the United Nations.

The GEC, led by an advisory board, will include corporate venturing units in:

    1. Energy: O&G, electricity, solar, wind, hydrogen, batteries, biofuels
    2. Generation and distribution: Electric and gas utilities, gas and electricity distribution companies, aggregators
    3. Suppliers: hardware, software, services

Barbara Burger, head of Chevron Technology Ventures, chair of the GCV Energy conference and sustainability stream, and past chair of the GEC, points to the innovation and collaboration required and her optimism that it can be achieved “because, frankly, society depends on it”.

Our thanks to Burger, BP, Shell and the other corporate venturing leaders behind the past four years’ O&G quarterly reports, produced by Kaloyan Andonov. Welcome to the new members under incoming GEC chairwoman, Lisa Lambert, chief technology and innovation officer at utility National Grid and founder and president of its National Grid Partners corporate venturing unit.

Paul Morris, founder and former head of the CVC operation of Dow Chemical in Europe and Israel, and head of the GCV Academy, is the new President of the GEC. Morris will facilitate and develop the future network between energy industry corporate venturing units.
