The global energy industry is evolving faster than ever. Scores of companies are pledging to reduce their emissions. Oil companies are trimming down after demand for fossil fuels collapsed. And the Biden administration is moving quickly to create incentives for clean energy. 

Still, there are many challenges ahead to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement — a global pact to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). 

Join us on March 8 at 10 am EST for a free live event, during which four top executives from companies like Facebook and Shell explain how these trends are shaping the energy industry. The event will be a 30-minute virtual panel moderated by Insider energy reporter Benji Jones.
