#REMforum 2020

"System Change, not Climate Change - Doing Business in a 1.5°C World"

The 11th St. Gallen Forum for Management of Renewable Energies (#REMforum) addresses the tectonic shifts that have happened in the climate debate over the last 12 months and their implications for management of renewable energies.

This year’s conference theme “System Change, not Climate Change - Doing Business in a 1.5oC World” will allow speakers from academia and business to explore what impact the #FridaysForFuture social movement has had on policymaking, and how businesses can align their investment strategies with climate targets and stakeholder expectations. Best practice cases for designing innovative business models and securing social acceptance of the energy transition will be discussed in plenary sessions and interactive workshops.

Moderated by national TV anchor Arthur Honegger and featuring a careful selection of international experts, #REMforum 2020 offers you an opportunity to reflect upon upcoming trends shaping the energy market and strengthen your network among dedicated professionals and influential thought leaders.

#REMforum is part of the "Energie-Tage St.Gallen" and is hosted by the Chair for Management of Renewable Energies at the University of St.Gallen, one of the leading European Business Schools.

#REMforum 2020 moved to September 10/11, 2020– update on Corona Virus (13.3.2020)


It is with regret that we have decided to postpone this year`s #REMforum to 10th/11th September 2020, due to the health concerns arising from the spread of COVID-19.

As conference organizers, the health and safety of our attendees, employees and partners are of paramount importance. This is not a decision that we took lightly. We think that it is in the best interest of all stakeholders to postpone the event to September.

With the new date the quality and format of the event will remain the same including insightful panel discussions and interactive workshops featuring a careful selection of international experts.

We would like to thank participants, speakers, sponsors and partners for their support and understanding in these difficult and unpredictable circumstances. We are looking forward to seeing you at the #REMforum 2020 in September.

Your registration remains valid. In the meantime, we will present the findings of the 10th consumer barometer of renewable energy online on the 3rd of April. As a registered participant, you will have priority access to this online presentation and details will follow closer to the date.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to greeting you in September. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the #REMforum team energieforum(at)unisg.ch or +41 71 224 2746.

Warm regards,

Prof. Wüstenhagen and team
