The series entitled "Team Norway's Opportunities 2022: Energy Transition – Opportunities relating to the shift to lower carbon solutions" includes keynotes and panel discussions, highlights opportunities for co-operation between Norway and the UK and showcases achievements and innovations.
Part 1 - Enabling Energy Transition
Two keynote speeches will address some of the challenges and opportunities arising out of the Energy Transition, looking at policy and the actions needed to reach Net Zero by 2050, including the implications of the UK government's Net Zero strategy of October 2021.
The panel discussion will explore the solutions needed to enable the energy transition and issues that may arise as part of that transition. Both external forces and internal forces will be considered, and insights from companies on the front line who are currently dealing with these challenges, will be presented.
When: Thursday 10th of February Time: 09.00 - 10.30
Part 2 - Research or scale?
The Energy Transition gives rise to significant scope for (challenging) innovation and change. In part 2 of the program, a case study from a company that has recently scaled up, using new methods and strategies to leverage existing technologies, will be presented.
The panel discussion will explore the pros and cons of innovation and developing new technology versus the process of using existing technology better. The panel will include advisors from different disciplines including legal and finance who will explore the different risk profiles.
When: Thursday 17th of February Time: 09.00 - 10.30
Part 3 - CCS: what can we learn from Norway?
The final session will explore the role of CCS in the Net Zero strategy and how clusters work. The ability to capture carbon and avoid its release into the atmosphere is a significant but difficult undertaking. Northern Lights and companies involved in developing the CCB Energy Park in Norway will present their perspectives.
The panel discussion will explore what lessons can be learned from current developments that are making CCS commercially viable and consider what the future opportunities are, including the infrastructure required to support it.
When: Thursday 24th of February Time: 09.00 - 10.30
