They invited European leaders and parliamentarians to gather together to discuss Europe’s energy strategy. The venue for the first Forum was chosen to be the Principality of Monaco, a country that has always been associated with environmental innovation, vision, and leadership and which has since become the birthplace of a new global movement to replace traditional energy with renewable sources.

The first of what would become an annual forum called ‘‘Energy Security for the Future: new sources, responsibility, sustainability’’ was held June 2, 2016 at the Yacht Club de Monaco in Monte Carlo, Monaco, drawing more than 150 participants from across Europe. Among them were presidents, parliamentarians, and European commissioners.
