The global offshore and marine industry faces an uncertain future. As well as dealing with the fall out from the pandemic it also has longer-term challenges, ranging from shifts in supply-chain dynamics and growing protectionism to changes in consumption and buying habits, a sharper focus on risk assessment and resilience, a stricter environmental landscape and an accelerating net-zero carbon agenda.

The ADIPEC 2021 Offshore and Marine Conference brings together industry leaders, influencers and decision-makers from the global offshore and marine supply chain to address these pressing industry challenges and to identify the strategies and solutions that will ensure the industry is ready to embrace the emerging business opportunities as it pivots to new growth areas that ensure long-term profitability and success.

Building a sustainable hydrogen economy
Hydrogen Session

Hydrogen Economist Keynote Address Monday 15 November 2021

As a clean energy carrier, feedstock and fuel, green hydrogen can facilitate the large-scale integration of renewables into the energy system, offering new solutions for hard-to-decarbonise industries, market diversification, security of energy supply and economic growth. Although technology, economic and policy challenges have to be overcome, the potential of green hydrogen promises an array of opportunities, not only for businesses but also for countries as they seek to meet Paris Agreement targets and progress towards net-zero commitments. What role should green hydrogen have in the future energy mix? How can governments support each stage of technology readiness, market penetration and market growth to promote hydrogen use? How can green hydrogen help NOCs and IOCs future-proof their businesses and make them fit-for-purpose in a zero-carbon future?

Attendee insights:

A must-attend session for attendees looking to understand the future role of hydrogen in the energy transition.

Gas is a more reliable, cheaper and flexible fuel than hydrogen, and will be the fuel of choice by 2030
Hydrogen Session

Hydrogen Leadership Debate Tuesday 16 November 2021

Both gas and hydrogen have been identified as the fuels of the future. Both are seen as low-emissions alternatives to coal and crude oil, and governments and companies are investing heavily in promoting their use.  However, both energy sources have their drawbacks; gas, while cleaner than crude oil, remains a fossil fuel, and emissions across its value change can be significant.  By contrast, green hydrogen, which is made from renewables, has immense potential, but the technology and investments required to make it broadly commercial and competitive are huge.  

In this Leadership Debate, two experts will share their views on which fuel, gas or hydrogen, will be the industry’s preference by 2030 and why.

What policies are needed to support the development of a sustainable hydrogen industry?
Hydrogen Session

Hydrogen Strategic Panel Tuesday 16 November 2021

There is a growing consensus that green hydrogen will play a key role in the transition to a lower carbon energy future. However, the progression of green hydrogen, from a niche player to a widespread energy carrier, will require a convergence of enabling policy frameworks, at local, regional and global levels, if it is to command a significant share in the future low carbon global energy system.  What policy progress has been made to accelerate the development and implementation of the hydrogen economy in the Middle East, Asia and Europe?  How are governments working with industry players and other key stakeholders to encourage the public-private partnerships needed to move hydrogen from niche to mainstream? How should national hydrogen strategies be framed to provide an integrated view of the hydrogen value chain, and establish a supporting governance system and policy framework to promote hydrogen deployment.

Attendee insights:
