Significant energy transitions are under way globally and now more than ever society is actively involved in shaping their outcomes. The partner companies of the World Economic Forum Utilities and Technologies Community have been contributing to the ongoing work to shape these transitions. In particular, during 2013, our community has worked collectively to generate new insights and new approaches for driving investment in global electricity infrastructure, which we believe to be one of the core challenges for industry, policy-makers and society alike. Concern for the future of investment in electricity infrastructure first emerged in January 2013 during the Utilities and Technologies Governors meeting, a CEO-level session held within the context of the Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland. Since then, under the chairmanship of Peter Terium, Chief Executive Officer of RWE AG, this topic has become a unifying theme forming the basis of the community’s work for 2013-2014.
