Rystad Energy will proudly organize and host the Energy Transition Marathon, an exciting virtual event that will address and provide unique analysis of all key elements of the energy transition. Living up to its name, the event will be a marathon divided into seven sessions, moderated by our CEO Jarand Rystad. Each session will include discussions with select external speakers, in addition to a wealth of Rystad Energy experts.

Each session will last 45 minutes, followed by a 15-minute break, with the first session starting at 9am CEST on Thursday, May 6 and the final one finishing at 4pm CEST the same day. The Energy Transition Marathon will be live-streamed via our LinkedIn and Facebook pages.

For Journalists

Journalists are also encouraged to register as we will provide frequent emailed updates about the event’s program and participants, and also further details as we get closer to the date.

There will be opportunities for Q&A at towards the end of each session. Journalists can ask questions in the comment section of the live-streaming screen, some of which will be relayed to the speakers during the live sessions.

Questions can also be addressed directly to Rystad Energy’s Media Relations via email or SMS, before or during the event. We will do our best to channel questions through to our speakers and experts, though we do expect there will be some time constraints.

Personal interviews by phone can be arranged with all of Rystad Energy’s speakers, with 10-minute slots reserved for the first hour after the close of each respective session. Early slot booking is recommended as we will cater to media on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Questions that we are unable to redirect to our external speakers during the event, as well as interview requests for non-Rystad Energy guests, will be shared with their respective press offices for handling.

The energy transition is upon us already – albeit at a relatively early stage – and it will reshape the global energy landscape in the years to come. Are you ready? We look forward to seeing you on May 6!
