Media Resources

Welcome members of the media to the Breakthrough Energy Summit.

Reaching net-zero emissions will be the hardest thing humanity has ever done, and it will require unprecedented collaboration across all parts of society.

The Breakthrough Energy Summit will turn a spotlight on the innovation the world needs while driving action across our network. Through panel discussions, technology showcases, meetings, and presentations, the Summit will highlight how BE and our network of partners are accelerating the innovations needed to build a net zero economy. 

We believe the right people, with the right platform, have the power to scale critical technologies to decarbonize our global economy and transform tomorrow with clean, reliable, and affordable energy. The time to act is now – and the challenge is ours.
