Enabling and Accelerating Energy Transition Ecosystems: Part I - Drivers for Industry and Rethinking Global Supply Chains / Part II - Low Carbon Solutions: Geothermal, Hydrogen and Natural Gas

Tuesday, 17 October
Hemisphere Ballroom C1
Special Session
0830-0945: Part I: Drivers for Industry and Rethinking Global Supply Chains Energy transition is a significant structural change in our energy system. To effectively navigate this transition, it is essential to understand technology, policy, and financial drivers in order to develop strategies that align with the transition pathway demand. Achieving a sustainable, secure, and affordable energy transition will also require envisioning and constructing cleaner supply chain ecosystems. Is energy transition really an energy system transformation? Panelists will explore strategies and actions from industry, government, and others for success. 1015-1130: Part II: Low Carbon Solutions: Geothermal, Hydrogen and Natural Gas The global energy markets are under immense pressure to solve the energy trilemma of achieving security, affordability, and sustainability. Hence, the leading players in the energy scene are exploring low-carbon energy options as a viable pathway to achieve a just and sustainable energy transition. Low-carbon hydrogen, geothermal energy, and natural gas are at the heart of that approach. This subsection aims to demonstrate the policies and regulations attributed to these three low-carbon energy sources, clarify their potential role in the new energy mix, and explore how these approaches complement each other in achieving the net-zero targets.
