All the news and analysis from Shell's latest summit on the transition towards a lower carbon future

Hosted with support from Shell, the Powering Progress Together Hub will provide news, analysis, and interviews from the energy giant's latest conference on the transition to a lower carbon future.

Featuring a host of leading green economy experts, including author Mike Berners-Lee, Professor Kevin Anderson, Hermione Taylor of the Do Nation, and Undercover Economist Tim Harford, as well as senior executives from Shell, Toyota, and the Energy Saving Trust, the conference will explore the challenges and opportunities presented by the low carbon transition.

Over the next week, BusinessGreen will report on the key discussions on the day, including sessions on the role of the consumer in driving clean energy adoption, effective behaviour change models, and how cities will shape the future of energy. 

The BusinessGreen Powering Progress Together Hub is supported by Shell. All the hub's content is editorially independent, unless stated otherwise.
