Event Overview

You're invited to the launch of Barclays Eagle Labs EnergyTech initiative, a launch pad to accelerate industry innovation among professionals in the UK energy sector. 

The launch event is a half-day virtual conference hosted by Barclays Ventures and our partners CodeBase and Opportunity North East on Tuesday, 29 September 2020


Why should I attend?

A cleaner and more sustainable world with a net-zero future requires the energy sector to reposition itself and develop new propositions based on different ways of thinking. This is our starting point. This launch event will take you further. It brings together top global EnergyTech investors, Venture Capitalists (VCs), Corporate VCs (CVCs), entrepreneurs and government leaders to explore the central theme of the programme that's at the heart of the challenges facing the industry - innovation.
