ABOUT THE Decarbonisation Strategic Conference
Reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 is a global commitment, placing the energy transition as a top priority for all industries and economies today. Decarbonising the energy system requires a transformation in the way industries consume, transport and provide energy. Key strategies to move the needle forward include large-scale investments in technology, expansion of low-carbon energy, phasing out unabated fossil fuels, and widespread electrification.
Decarbonisation is seen by many as an opportunity to foster green economic growth, enhance energy security, and safeguard the well-being of future generations. However, overcoming challenges such as today’s economic conditions and policy barriers, requires proactive measures. By expanding renewable energy, enhancing energy efficiency, implementing carbon pricing mechanisms, promoting technological innovations, and collaborating across government and business, industries can navigate the path to decarbonisation and create a healthier, more resilient planet for all.
The ADIPEC 2023 Decarbonisation Conference will feature strategic sessions with a focus on addressing the need for innovative policies, new investment, technology advancement, new energy sources, and decarbonisation of heavy-emitting sectors.
It will gather industry leaders, policymakers, governments, financial institutions to deliberate on the opportunities in a decarbonised future and the importance of new partnerships to unlock new value pools. In support of industry decarbonisation commitments, the conference will also host discussions on key topics around emissions abatement, clean energy technology, carbon tax, carbon capture, renewables, nuclear energy, battery storage, low-carbon solutions, circularity, energy efficiency, and electrification.
Decarbonisation Conference Themes
Global collaboration, funding and government-led actions from across the energy value chain and the broader industrial ecosystem will be crucial to a clean energy transition. The focus of this year’s programme will provide critical insights on the following themes:
1. REINFORCING REGULATORY SYSTEMS TO GUIDE AND ACCELERATE EMISSIONS REDUCTION
Setting clear-cut standards and policies is vital for businesses to make long-term plans for successful emissions reduction efforts. Ambitious targets, robust measuring, reporting and verification systems, innovation and commercialisation incentives, enforcement and market-making mechanisms, public participation, and international co-operation are all key elements to establishing a regulatory framework for a new industrial base that can effectively support businesses in reducing their emissions.View Conference Programme
2. DRIVING INVESTMENT IN NEW TECHNOLOGY TO SCALE DOWN THE COST OF CLEAN ENERGY
Transforming the world's energy systems through the deployment of carbon reduction technologies and solutions involves substantial investment in clean energy infrastructure. Driving technological advances will be crucial to delivering accessible and affordable green energy.View Conference Programme
3. ENHANCING GRID INFRASTRUCTURE TO TAP RENEWABLES AND LOW-CARBON SOLUTIONS AS ENERGY SOURCES
Renewable energy and low-carbon solutions have the potential to significantly reduce energy dependence on fossil fuels and help mitigate the impacts of climate change. Establishing diversity in energy sources is a key factor in meeting the challenges of energy supply and demand. Improving grid infrastructure will play a vital role in unlocking this capability.View Conference Programme
4. DECARBONISING END-USE AND HEAVY-EMITTING SECTORS
The decarbonisation of heavy-emitting sectors presents unique challenges. Recognising the capabilities of energy efficiency, electrification, and new energy carriers as key enablers in the energy system opens opportunities for effective, tailored solutions to decarbonise operations across heavy-emitting sectors.View Conference Programme
