Technology Powering the North Sea Transition Deal

VIRTUAL EVENT – FREE REGISTRATION

 

Wednesday 28th September

10:30am – 12:00pm (BST)

 

There is no single solution to deliver net zero. Affordable, low carbon energy growth will be driven by innovative technology.

How do we create an agile, integrated, interdependent energy system to capitalise on domestic opportunities and global markets?

Join a panel of experts as they delve into the insights and dissect the recommendations made in the Technology Driving Green Energy Growth report, produced by the Technology Leadership Board, Net Zero Technology Centre, and Accenture.

The report highlights opportunities in hydrogen, floating offshore wind and carbon capture and storage technologies, exploring the innovative solutions required to meet the North Sea Transition Deal commitments.

The successful realisation of these innovations will ultimately lead to greater cost competitiveness, create domestic and international supply chain opportunities and secure low carbon jobs.

Geothermal

— A Tracking Transition Series —

June 29 – 15:00-16:30 (BST)

VIRTUAL EVENT – FREE REGISTRATION

CLICK HERE TO VIEW SESSION 1 ON DEMAND

 

Geothermal has been identified as a key technology in the provision of sustainable energy. It is not dependent on weather conditions and geothermal power plants can supply baseload electricity.

And geothermal can also harness the skills and technology developed in the oil and gas sector to help drive the transition and shift to net zero.

It offers a huge untapped energy source that has the potential to drive up to 20% of the UK’s electricity and all of the country’s heating demand, making it an area that should not be ignored.

Energy Voice has joined up with Expro, an expert in geothermal, to showcase the potential of the technology to reshape the energy mix, enhance security of supply and advance the just transition from oil and gas to sustainable energy.

Join us to hear from Expro and a select panel of experts as they discuss what the technology is, why it’s important and what next for the sector.

–NEO 2.0–

CAPITALISING ON NEW ENERGY OPPORTUNITIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA

Wednesday May 18, 2022

11:00 – 12:30 (BST) / 06:00 – 07:30 (EST) / 14:00 – 15:30 (GST)

VIRTUAL EVENT – FREE REGISTRATION

The energy transition will need to harness an array of new technologies with solar PV, hydrogen and storage all playing a critical role.

These three industries each have their own merits and challenges. But the common thread, the drive to slash carbon emissions, means they will continue to attract substantial capital and create significant opportunities for the global supply chain.

In 2021, Energy Voice presented the first in our NEO series which focused on the US market. Now, in association with Bracewell, a leading law firm renowned worldwide for its unique depth and experience in the energy sector, we are delighted to present a follow up virtual event focused on new energy opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa.

The international energy industry can learn from the rapid development of these technologies in the region.

Register today to hear from our panel on how solar PV, hydrogen and storage are shaping the new energy mix, and how to capitalise on the opportunities this transition presents.
