International Advisory Board

As part of the ONS ambition to strengthen our position as one of the highest-ranking international meeting places for energy, the establishment of an International Advisory Board (IAB) is a significant and critical contribution.

The Board, consisting of 16 members representing 10 countries, adds perspectives and insights complementing the work of the programme committee and the ONS administration. Mr. John Knight, Senior Partner, Hitec Vision and former Chair of ONS Conference Committee, has kindly accepted to chair the IAB.

“When the International Advisory Board met for the first time during ONS 2018, we received very valuable and interesting input and recommendation as to how we may further develop the scope and the depth of the ONS as an international energy institution. The IAB has already provided as a valuable body for us”, Leif Johan Sevland, CEO and President of ONS said. 

The International Advisory Board will be important to ascertain that the international perspectives and global energy trends addressed at ONS events reflect all key stakeholders and parts of the world, and that ONS captures international issues, crossroads and decisions related to the strategic directions of the energy market.
