TEST OF AGILITY. HOW ENERGY PLAYERS ARE MAKING A TRANSITION TO A LOW CARBON MODEL
The energy industry is facing a growing demand to increase productivity, build a more resilient industry ecosystem while at the same time delivering on long-term commitments to fulfil stakeholder expectations through low-carbon economy transition pathways. How does this new context redefine the strategic imperatives that will shape the future of the energy industry? How are energy players, from major integrated energy companies to independent players, changing their business model for the energy transition?

PANEL DISCUSSION. BRIDGING THE GAP- ENERGY TRANSITION & FINANCE
Achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 will require up to $173 trillion of investment in the energy transition according to BloombergNEF. The banks are pledging to stop providing funding to fossil and the pressure from investors is amplifying. How is the energy transition going to be financed? But also how to address the oil & gas industry's need for continuing to attract finance during an energy transition to make the new technologies bankable?
  • Where do investors see the emerging opportunities?
  • What are the alternative financial sources available?
  • How can energy companies attract finance? What are the criteria?
  • EU taxonomy vs greenwashing - how will it help boost the transition? What is the scope of the current policy? What does it mean for public funding and capital allocation?
  • How to ensure that an Oil & Gas asset designed and built today will not be a stranded asset or a liability vs Net Zero targets, by 2040 or 2050?
  • How can the industry rethink capital projects based on Sustainability and Digitalization disruptions in order to secure long term value?

PANEL DISCUSSION. SETTING UP PARTNERSHIPS AND LOW CARBON BUSINESS MODELS
The interdependence of climate technologies means that scaling them up often requires organizations to work together on building new value chains and industrial ecosystems—a more cooperative approach than businesses might be accustomed to, and one that can disrupt existing networks.
  • How can energy companies adjust quickly despite a tough timeline and pressure from regulators and stakeholders?
  • What cultural changes should be in place to support the new business models and fast transition at scale?
  • What partnerships should energy companies seek? From strategic advisor to technology supplier and help on eating one’s own food?
  • Carbon offsets partnerships- helping or hindering decarbonisation?

ROUTES TO NET-ZERO IN PRACTICE
STREAM 1: UPSCALING RENEWABLES TO BOOST ENERGY TRANSITION
Now the European countries’ focus has shifted to renewable energy even more so. With uncertainties around the energy supply, renewables have a crucial role to play across a number of energy transition and decarbonisation projects. Now the widespread adoption of renewables remains in its infancy, but changes through policy, and access to capital are likely to improve the rate of integration within the sector. What are the projects, scaling technologies and how to overcome the storage constraints?

STREAM 2: SUSTAINABLE FUELS AND LOW CARBON GASES
The demand for low carbon fuels in transport is expected to double by 2030 and by 2040 over 80% of electricity is expected to be low carbon. Low carbon fuels provide cost-effective solutions for reducing CO2 emissions. However, this requires coherent policies and technology agnostic and market neutral legislation. What are the latest developments in European and international policy, the energy system transition to renewable fuels, new technologies and partnerships?

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN- IS CCUS THE ARC OF THE DECARBONISATION STORY?
CCUS accounts for nearly 15% of the cumulative reduction in emissions in the Sustainable Development Scenario but to achieve net-zero goals the CCUS capacity needs to be 190-fold according to IEA. How is the industry going to scale up at such a pace in such a short period of time? What are the latest projects’ advancements and what are the emerging commercial models that accelerate? Which new technologies can make future applications more efficient and economically attractive?
