The current energy transition toward a decarbonized society is an unprecedented challenge and calls for the involvement of governments and regulators, private companies, investors, consumers and society as a whole. It must be approached from many different perspectives.

Climate change, digital advances, regulation, geopolitics and the pricing and taxation of fossil fuels grab headlines around the globe, and continue to drive an industry-wide transformation that is anything but linear. IESE Custom Programs provide a deep dive into the complex issues at play and help define the path forward, while our Energy Industry Meetings and Energy Prospectives’ series convene leaders from government, industry and academia in open debate around the critical shifts reshaping the sector. Our research centers and chairs are innovation ecosystems that drive knowledge sharing with applicable impact. The Fuel Freedom Chair for Energy and Social Development, for instance, informs on policy, strategy and investment to help connect private capital with entrepreneurial opportunities coming out of market inefficiencies.


The Energy Industry programs bring together industry stakeholders and leaders, offering educational opportunities for the advancement of energy sector.
