Event Information


  • Have you wondered what energy sector incumbents are doing to gain exposure to renewables?
  • Are you interested in reshaping your company’s strategic approach to energy generation and consumption?
  • Do you want to know what sorts of tools are out there to promote effective and sustainable resource management?
  • Are you looking for innovative technologies to invest in that are ripe to be a part of the sustainability boom?


Come to the CJBS Clean Energy Group’s event and hear industry pioneers and current leaders discuss how we are to overcome one of the greatest challenges of our time - sustainable energy production and consumption.  The biggest driver of climate change and a major threat to us and future generations is the way we produce and consume energy. Renewable energy is disrupting the model we know so well, for the better. We are moving in the right direction but must leverage the transformation across different industries. Ultimately the pace of how the energy world is being transformed is a challenge to all stakeholders. Utilities, investors, grid operators and leading tech companies all face different challenges in this unique transformation towards renewable and distributed electricity generation.

We will discuss how the shift towards cleaner and distributed sources of energy can benefit everyone. Cheap, reliable and clean energy is changing our work in retail, hospitality, traditional tech, healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, mobility, and more.  This event brings together the knowledge and emerging tools that will help you position yourself well as clean energy becomes mainstream.  Learn about how your business will benefit from new technological developments, modern infrastructure, and a disaggregated energy system. 

Expect an evening when multi-disciplinary players take the stage to share their stories and expertise. Engage in discussion about how our current energy system is changing and where we need to go next.  How can increased Data Management capabilities sustain decentralized energy generation? Do we need to create more public-private partnerships? Ease the new-build process? Make more of our data? Develop emissions markets? Implement new energy pricing schemes? Attract more corporate capital?  Some of the biggest names in energy are on board to make this transformation happen while the brightest independent minds are creating new solutions to new challenges . 

The CJBS Clean Energy Group is an MBA student-run group at the Cambridge Judge Business School and we are partnering with the Cambridge University Energy Network (CUEN) and Cambridge Cleantech to bring together some of the brightest minds in industry, innovation and academia.
