Combined with slow economic recovery, rising inflation and supply chain challenges—all on a global scale—this moment in time offers both challenges and opportunities to the energy industry. Growing concerns regarding energy security and market stability have led governments to seek different sources of energy supply whilst trying to manage the short-term realities created by the global economic downturn. 

Attendee insights:

Gain insights into how the global energy system will navigate geopolitical uncertainty over the next 12 months. Understand how OPEC+ responses to supply constraints will evolve in 2023 and hear how global ministers will be revising energy policy to deal with both the short-term impacts of high energy prices along with the need to navigate towards net-zero energy ambitions.

Beyond the energy shock: the new map of energy, climate, and the clash of nations

Leadership Interview

Session Location: Conference Hall B

World energy markets are in upheaval. The global oil and natural gas markets are fractured.  What comes next?   A global energy crisis has combined with a geopolitical crisis to overturn the maps -- of the flows of oil and gas, the relationships that define the industry, and indeed the mental maps of how we think about the future.  The amnesia about energy security has ended, forcing a painful reassessment of investment priorities and the dynamics of the energy transition.

The emerging new North-South Divide is forcing a debate about the balance between poverty alleviation and economic growth, on one side, and climate objectives on the other.  A new alarm is arising about the adequacy of copper and the other minerals that constitute the new supply chains for net zero emissions.   Will new geopolitical clashes erupt that complicate the geopolitical struggles that are currently disrupting world energy and threatening global stability?

Attendee insights:

A strategic session providing insights into global energy outlooks, and the future of geopolitics and markets that can directly impact business strategies and industry forecasts.

The practical challenge of developing hydrogen in times of economic uncertainty

Hydrogen Session

Session Location: Conference Hall A

The European Commission plans to use 20mn tonnes of hydrogen by 2030 under the RepowerEU initiative. While there are many large hydrogen projects planned in Europe, final investment decisions have been taken by only a few. Other countries including the US, Japan and Korea have developed their hydrogen roadmap strategies, but will need to navigate challenges to succeed in the long-term. Developers are reluctant to start projects unless they have buyers, who in turn are reluctant to sign binding purchase agreements until ground has been broken. The challenge is in identifying which incentives need to be put in place to accelerate both hydrogen supply and demand, as well as clarifying standards associated with the different types of hydrogen. 

Attendee insights:

Gain insights from policymakers as well as industrial suppliers and users of hydrogen in Europe on near-term actions required to accelerate the hydrogen transition.

Will geopolitical events in Europe accelerate the net-zero agenda or reverse its course?

Perspectives on geopolitics

Session Location: Conference Hall B

The EU wants to diversify its energy mix before the end of 2022. To ensure security of supply, some EU countries are considering increasing capacity at their coal-fired plants, which could delay decarbonisation and net-zero agendas for some time to come. How can policy makers ensure that decarbonisation strategies don’t stagnate? How can these geopolitical challenges be turned into opportunities in line with the energy transition? Can further investments in technologies fast track the development and deployment of renewables and other clean energy sources?

Attendee insights:

A key session to understand how this year’s geopolitical events are impacting decarbonisation strategies and what business opportunities might emerge as government’s reassess their energy policies.

The new realities of an ever-changing energy landscape

Session Location: ICC Hall

Since February 2022, many politicians have shifted to a call for existing oil and gas producers—from US shale through the North Sea as well as OPEC members—to do what they can to increase production in an effort to limit the damage of global energy supply disruption. This divided landscape will create new energy trading routes and market commodity cycles for the future ahead. As dramatic and surprising as these energy policy about-turns have been, the agenda for a clear pathway to carbon neutrality and investment in the most strategic clean technologies has not abated. But with the focus on Europe securing new supply sources, questions will need to be addressed as to how traditional markets in Asia for LNG cargoes will respond. Will new levels of competition to secure supplies drive up prices and dampen the momentum behind the energy transition? Record prices and supply disruptions could potentially damage the reputation of natural gas as a reliable and affordable energy source, which places greater emphasis on investing in energy efficiency pathways and bringing forward plans for renewable energy sources.

Jeff Currie, an economist and the Global Head of Commodities Research in the Global Investment Research Division at Goldman Sachs, joins us to share his insights and perspective. Jeff rose to prominence during the 2000s by forecasting the commodity super-cycle and oil spiking above $100 a barrel. He is a regular commentator on commodity markets and cryptocurrency, featuring on Sky News, Bloomberg and CNBC.

Investment and strategies required to reinforce climate action

Live Session

Session Location: Live Theatre

The climate and ecological crises are on an accelerated trajectory. The United Nation’s (UN’s) sixth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in April, showed the world is on track for a 3.2C of warming by the end of the century. Across all industries and of particular importance for the energy industry, it is critical to cut greenhouse gas emissions and actively begin repair on the ecosystems already damaged. Bold moves are needed to rapidly shift the existing energy system. With an eye on this challenging future, many stakeholders are calling for the accelerated focus on and investment in sweeping energy efficiency measures and an unprecedented build-up of low carbon next generation energy solutions covering new energy sources and acceleration of carbon abatement solutions like Direct Air Capture (DAC).

Digital technologies and the transition to clean power systems

Live Session

Session Location: Live Theatre

To address the structural shifts, challenges and disruptions agitating the industry, companies will have to reinvent and embrace an innovation agenda capable of delivering technology breakthroughs. These new technologies are being rapidly deployed to accelerate the change needed to address the challenges of creating a new energy system where power consumption is expected to triple by 2050 as electrification and living standards grow. Renewables are expected to become the new baseload, accounting for 50% of the power mix by 2030 and 85% by 2050. Flexible assets like gas plants, batteries and hydrogen electrolyzers are key for grid stability and decarbonisation, as are technologies like CCUS. Technology innovation will also be key to evolving the core of the business operational agenda, to optimising the value chain with extreme supply chain challenges, and to connecting and integrating operations across a new industry ecosystem. Importantly, they will be the drivers behind reinventing the customer experience and transforming the organisation’s cost structure. To achieve a true energy industry transformation will require the right combination of leader-led technology, policy, investment, talent and collaboration.

Sverre Brandsberg-Dahl, CTO for the Energy industry at Microsoft joins us to share his perspectives. He leads Microsoft’s efforts in bringing the latest technical innovations in Cloud Computing and AI to the energy industry.

Increasing hydrogen demand across multiple industry sectors

Hydrogen Session

Session Location: Conference Hall B

While the road to increasing hydrogen supply is understood, there must also be sufficient certainty of demand to activate the market. It is important that producers and policymakers collaborate to create the right conditions for hydrogen adoption. Infrastructure development, finance and investment must advance accordingly, along with a regulated market that provides conditions for trade and supply. This includes hydrogen’s role in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors that require the production of ammonia and synthetic hydrocarbon fuels produced from hydrogen and the mobility sector. Regulatory challenges must also be considered to ensure production and demand needs are met, but what is the degree of government intervention needed? What structures should be followed to drive hydrogen production and to avoid the pitfalls of global energy prices volatility? How should hydrogen policy support work within the larger ecosystem of energy transition including renewables, CCUS, design of power markets, energy infrastructure, and more?

The practical challenge of developing hydrogen in times of economic uncertainty

Hydrogen Session

Session Location: Conference Hall A

The European Commission plans to use 20mn tonnes of hydrogen by 2030 under the RepowerEU initiative. While there are many large hydrogen projects planned in Europe, final investment decisions have been taken by only a few. Other countries including the US, Japan and Korea have developed their hydrogen roadmap strategies, but will need to navigate challenges to succeed in the long-term. Developers are reluctant to start projects unless they have buyers, who in turn are reluctant to sign binding purchase agreements until ground has been broken. The challenge is in identifying which incentives need to be put in place to accelerate both hydrogen supply and demand, as well as clarifying standards associated with the different types of hydrogen.

Digital technologies and the transition to clean power systems

DATE: TUESDAY 1 NOVEMBER
Live Session

Session Location: Live Theatre

To address the structural shifts, challenges and disruptions agitating the industry, companies will have to reinvent and embrace an innovation agenda capable of delivering technology breakthroughs. These new technologies are being rapidly deployed to accelerate the change needed to address the challenges of creating a new energy system where power consumption is expected to triple by 2050 as electrification and living standards grow. Renewables are expected to become the new baseload, accounting for 50% of the power mix by 2030 and 85% by 2050. Flexible assets like gas plants, batteries and hydrogen electrolyzers are key for grid stability and decarbonisation, as are technologies like CCUS. Technology innovation will also be key to evolving the core of the business operational agenda, to optimising the value chain with extreme supply chain challenges, and to connecting and integrating operations across a new industry ecosystem. Importantly, they will be the drivers behind reinventing the customer experience and transforming the organisation’s cost structure. To achieve a true energy industry transformation will require the right combination of leader-led technology, policy, investment, talent and collaboration.

Sverre Brandsberg-Dahl, CTO for the Energy industry at Microsoft joins us to share his perspectives. He leads Microsoft’s efforts in bringing the latest technical innovations in Cloud Computing and AI to the energy industry. With a passion for technology and innovation, he is positioning Microsoft to work with customers, partners, and governments as they accelerate their adoption of cloud technology while focusing equally hard on the transition to clean power and emissions management.

Investment and strategies required to reinforce climate action

Date: Wednesday 2 November
Live Session

Session Location: Live Theatre

The climate and ecological crises are on an accelerated trajectory. The United Nation’s (UN’s) sixth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in April, showed the world is on track for a 3.2C of warming by the end of the century. Across all industries and of particular importance for the energy industry, it is critical to cut greenhouse gas emissions and actively begin repair on the ecosystems already damaged. Bold moves are needed to rapidly shift the existing energy system. With an eye on this challenging future, many stakeholders are calling for the accelerated focus on and investment in sweeping energy efficiency measures and an unprecedented build-up of low carbon next generation energy solutions covering new energy sources and acceleration of carbon abatement solutions like Direct Air Capture (DAC).

Join Tom Rivett-Carnac, a founding Partner of Global Optimism and co-author of The Future We Choose: The Stubborn Optimist's Guide to the Climate Crisis, as he discusses stubborn optimism as a deliberate mindset and our collective ability to address any challenge—including the climate crisis.

Navigating geopolitics in the current energy climate: technology, leadership and what lies ahead

Date: Wednesday 2 November
Live Session

Session Location: Live Theatre

The geopolitical ramifications of a tumultuous 2022 will be felt for many a year. Indeed, they have changed the course of history on all fronts. Both financial and energy market volatility will be a norm to be managed for the foreseeable future, coupled with managing economic recession in both developed and developing markets. The short-term priority and maxim for energy policy in much of the developed world has evolved toward policy measures that drive energy security.

Dr. Pippa Malmgren, former Special Assistant to the George W. Bush and author of Geopolitics for Investors, Signals: How Everyday Signs Help Us Navigate the World's Turbulent Economy will share her perspectives to the complexities of today’s world economy and geopolitics—and what that may mean for the energy industry as it addresses today’s challenges while navigating energy transformation to achieve net-zero ambitions and the role of technology and leadership in this new world order.

Attracting the talent of today to create the leaders of tomorrow

Date: Thursday 3 November
Live Session

Session Location: Live Theatre

Changes from new energy business models, new responses to supply chain resilience, all the way through to new cyber threats highlight how the nature of work in the industry is changing; and how work will be organised, structured and conducted in new ways. With these changes come new demands for the talent pool of the future. Above all, according to Gallup, Gen Z and Millennial talent want an employer who cares about both their physical and mental wellbeing, a desire we can assume was emphasized by the pandemic and which was likely a key catalyst in the Great Resignation, now called the Great Reshuffle. On top of this, Millennials, our future leaders, say a sense of purpose in their work is essential followed closely by technology and innovation.

Join Timothy Armoo, founder of the social media agency Fanbytes, to hear his perspective on engaging and connecting with Gen Z audiences. Since founding Fanbytes during college, he has helped creators and brands like Nike, Deliveroo and Samsung reach Gen Z across various platforms, with a specific focus on TikTok. He has been recognised in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for his achievements and has been featured in BBC, Forbes, Adweek and more.
