Energy Solutions for the Climate Change Problem

Rapidly advancing technologies, both innovative and disruptive, are changing today’s energy markets and industries, and are stimulating and accelerating economic growth.

At this 10th conference of the Astana EXPO-2017 Future Energy Forum, start-ups, entrepreneurs, academics and innovators take on the climate change problem.

Current and emerging energy solutions are reviewed and analyzed, followed by a series of workshops, discussions, and collaborative group efforts to develop, design, and create the innovations and disruptions to come.

What new energy products and business models could revolutionize international markets in the near future, and how will these new ideas help shape the future of renewable energy?

The dynamic role of buildings in the energy system – Opportunities to deliver on the Paris Agreement


A more efficient and smarter building stock is a cornerstone of the future energy system. Without significant changes in the built environment, the objectives of the Paris Agreement will not be met. Buildings have the potential to be at the forefront of providing flexibility to the energy system, through energy production, control, storage, and demand response, as well as, through an interconnection with electric vehicles. This keynote presentation will give an overview of opportunities, drivers and policy developments in the smart building space from a European perspective.
