    The energy transition is underway and accelerating, driven by public demand, policy, technology innovations, and economic forces. The transition is revolutionizing the energy value chain and blurring the lines that used to define the traditional industry silos. In that environment, collaboration among traditional energy players, start-ups, technology companies, and policymakers is vital for success. What is the potential role of partnerships in sparking innovation, fast-tracking technology deployment, and undertaking complex multibillion-dollar clean energy projects? How can public-private partnerships contribute to accelerate the energy transition?
