A Network of Key Players

energyNEXT is an innovation network that brings together key players in the energy ecosystem – innovators, investors, industry, academia, and government – to explore sector-specific issues and opportunities. By building a community of engaged stakeholders focused on cleantech solutions, energyNEXT offers members access to the world’s best experts, events, knowledge, industry challenges, and global opportunities.

energyNEXT is focused on helping players in the energy sector – primarily companies involved in the exploration and development of oil or gas reserves, oil and gas drilling, and refining – meet urgent climate goals.

This new open innovation model of ‘Realizing the Entrepreneurial Spirit’ focuses on entrepreneurs, energy companies, paid pilots, and smart capital, which has included backing from large industry players such as Equinor, Hess, TechnipFMC, and Anadarko.
