Day One: Energy & Net Zero, June 22

Direction setting debate and dialogue, defining the future of our energy system.

11:00am – 11:15am

Leadership, Action & Delivering Net Zero

With the energy sector accounting for more than two-thirds of global greenhouse gas emissions, the success of the transition will be pivotal in global efforts to tackle climate change. Is enough being done to drive towards a low-carbon future? What does true leadership look like within the transition? How can we move from ambition to action

11:00am – 11:15am

Decentralising Energy: Sustainability, Flexibly and Diversification

A record 10% increase in renewable capacity additions is expected in 2021, with renewables on course to become the largest source of electricity generation worldwide by 2025. How can we adapt to this increasingly diversified supply, how will the new energy revolution vary internationally, and what technologies will provide the fuel for a low-carbon future?

11:00am – 11:15am

Name Your Price

Whilst there is growing consensus that a global price for carbon will be vital if we are to stick ‘well below’ the two degree commitment under Paris, international carbon prices remain largely inadequate. How can we succeed in this growing quest for consensus? Is this the most effective regulatory mechanism? Is collaboration realistic in light of varying national apathy and outcome?

Drive Debate, Build Partnership, Interact!


Fuelling Net Zero: Realising the Hydrogen Economy

How far are we from realising a hydrogen economy, what function will H2 play within the future energy ecosystem and, crucially, what companies will lead future of clean fuel? 


Connecting the Dots for the Grid of The Future

The success of transition hinges upon the ability to connect increasingly diversified energy sources. What does this mean for the grid of the future?


More Electrons?

For many companies, replacing CO2 particles with more electrons sits at the heart of their transition strategy. How can we usher in the dawn of a renewable new world order?


Reduce, Reuse, Restore: CCUS, Offsetting and Carbon Management in Transition

Estimates suggesting that our remaining ‘carbon budget’ to keep below a 1.5oC increase will be spent this decade. What role therefore will carbon capture, offsetting, and management have in transition?


Digital Transformation Meets Energy Transition

The digital transformation promises to unlock $1.3trillion of value for the power sector. How will the digital ‘utility of the future’ leverage solutions to deliver interconnectivity, efficiency & agility?


The Economy of Efficiency

Energy efficiency is often touted as the ‘low hanging fruit’ of decarbonisation. How can we unlock new carbon and cost efficiencies to help drive toward a net-zero future?

Day Two: Energy & Society, June 23

Direction setting debate and dialogue, exploring the impact of transition on global societal structures

11:00am – 11:15am

Taking the Temperature: People, Progress, and a Just Transition

Recent reporting by IRENA suggests that renewable energy could employ more than 40 million workers globally by 2050, with exponential growth predicted in a sector which has remained resolute in the face of the global pandemic. How can we place people at the epicentre of climate progress, provide jobs and opportunities in clean industry and drive toward an inclusive energy future?

11:00am – 11:15am

Keep it Moving: Transport, Mobility & Trade

With transport accounting for around a fifth of all global CO2 emissions, the way in which we keep people, industry and trade moving will be key in efforts to tackle climate change. How can we fuel net zero aviation, freight, and shipping, ensure a clean transition to electric passenger vehicles, and deliver a sustainable, low-carbon and efficient transport ecosystem?

11:00am – 11:15am

The Climate Front-Line: Cities and the Built Environment through Transition

Whilst estimates suggest that cities are responsible for 75% of global CO2 emissions, rising temperatures, extreme weather events and sea levels pose existential risks to urban life. Our built environment sits on the front line of decarbonisation. What role will cities and local governments play in the transition, and how can local collaboration, innovation and experience benefit the transition globally?

Drive Debate, Build Partnership, Interact!


Corporate Activism in a Low Carbon Future

An effective transition will require collective action from all areas of business. How can corporates deliver a reduction on all emission scopes and drive toward a low carbon future?


What Transition?

As the global economy readies itself for a low carbon energy future, what role will those still without access to traditional hydrocarbon supply have on the transition?


Equity & Transition: Opportunity, Access, Growth

How can we ensure greater equity and access to energy within the future energy mix to ensure a more inclusive transition for all?


Tipping the Scales on Environmental Justice

The year 2020 represented another milestone in the fight for both environmental and social justice. How can the transition enable better protection of both people and planet?


Revaluating ‘Power’: People, Politics and Diversity on the Road to Zero

The diverse challenges presented by transition require diverse and inclusive solutions. How can we embed these principles to ensure an effective and meaningful energy transition?

Day Three: Energy & Industry, June 24

Direction setting debate and dialogue, exploring the associated industry and business transitions.

11:00am – 11:15am

The Economics of Transition: Recovery, Reengagement and Realignment

Realising an effective transition that aligns with globally recognised climate goals will call for $120 trillion investment through to 2050. The financial sector will be pivotal to both the speed and depth of global decarbonisation. How can we leverage the global economy to decarbonise; how can we leverage this decarbonisation to bolster the global economy?

11:00am – 11:15am

Unlocking the Global Hydrogen Economy

Increasingly, Hydrogen is cited as the key to driving the next phase of progress on the energy transition. That said, both cost and logistical barriers blur the roadmap for delivery. How can we unlock the potential of the global hydrogen economy, deliver carbon savings across industrial functions and, ultimately, place clean hydrogen at the center of the future energy system?

11:00am – 11:15am

The Next Frontier: Deep Decarbonisation and the Industry Transition

Since 1990, total GHG emissions associated with industrial processes have grown by 174%, with the top ten national contributors accounting for over two thirds of the global total. As countries around the world continue to develop, the industry transition represents the next frontier on climate action. How can we ensure deep decarbonisation in hard to abate sectors, create carbon-free industrial clusters and reset the balance on global carbon output?
