Key Note Addresses
Decarbonisation is only part of the transition story. Electrification of final demand combined with decentralisation and digitalisation define an incredible space of innovation in terms of technology and business models. WEC’s chief shares his views on creating a great transition in energy
The energy landscape is shifting and customer behaviour changing. National policies, shifts in customer behaviour, technology disruptors and more globalised markets are placing huge pressures on utility & producing companies to adapt their business models accordingly. Security of supply remains paramount but an emerging new world of distributed energy solutions creates new pressures. Learn from two influential leaders representing the power & gas value chain.
Mid Morning Plenary
What impact has the Paris Agreement had on energy intensive industries in the Netherlands and in other parts of Europe? This panel session – moderated by VEMW – will look at the challenges and opportunities to energy intensive industries as they strive to decarbonise their respective businesses, while remaining a key contributor to the economies they operate in.
Early Afternoon Plenary
“What Future Energy Projects and Industries Will Attract Finance? And What Criteria Do Investors Seek When Making Long-Term Decisions?”
Three influential financiers involved in global energy projects will share their views on the rapidly-evolving investor landscape. How ‘bankable’ are fossil fuel projects vs. renewables, and what do shareholders now look for most in long-term energy-related investments?
“How advanced technology and data-driven insight are reducing costs across the energy value chain”
Technology advances are transforming how energy systems operate and unlocking new opportunities across the energy value chain. Power is shifting to consumers, who are taking control of their energy demand. How will this transformation affect energy market incumbents? And how can your business benefit from the digitalisation of energy?
Open Energi will share case studies from the utility and industrial heating sectors demonstrating how energy tech is helping to radically reduce the cost of delivering and consuming power.
“How will Major Developments in Technology, Enhance as well as Disrupt the Power and Energy Industries?”
Late Afternoon Plenary
Includes interaction through Twitter Wall, or through Sli.do or Mentimeter
The shaping of a national energy policy that balances delivery of fairly-priced and reliable energy with cleaner, low-emissions ambition is a tough balancing act to achieve.
In this session, the role that regulation, networks and power distribution play in the energy transition space will be debated for their positives and negatives. Themes will include:
Sweden is currently aiming to create a totally CO2-free steel industry, and aiming to make the entire country ‘fossil fuel free’ by 2045. What does it take for a national energy agency to deliver such ambitious, technologically-demanding and far-reaching targets? This fascinating country case study provides a fresh and unique insight into how one nation is driving forward a new energy reality.
