Energy transition announced as key theme of Southern North Sea conference

The event was due to take place on April 22-23, but has been rescheduled for September 16-17 at the Norfolk Showground arena.

The transition to a lower-carbon energy sector will be the key topic of the flagship conference for the Southern North Sea next year.

SNS2020, arranged by industry body East of England Energy Group (EEEGR), has chosen “Smart generation – the transition to 2050” as its theme.

The event will discuss efforts to decarbonise the sector amid the UK Government’s plans to be a net zero producer of greenhouse gases by 2050.

EEEGR chief executive Simon Gray said: “This ambitious target will have far-reaching consequences for energy producers, long-term investment plans, supply chain engagement and the skills required for the next generation of energy producers.

“At SNS2020, we’re asking what effect these changes will have in the East of England, nationally and in the global energy markets.

“As public opinion converges on the importance of decarbonisation, we are at a pivotal moment where real change is coming. With the East of England’s diverse energy mix, this region is at the very heart of these challenges – we will be spearheading the transition.”

It comes as the energy sector around Norfolk and Suffolk aims to reach a value of £59.4bn by 2040.

The event, on April 22 and 23 at the Norfolk Showground Arena, will feature workshops and keynote speeches on how the energy transition will affect the region’s supply chain.

Speakers will examine prospects for the southern part of the North Sea such as gas-to-wire and platform electrification which can reduce carbon emissions.
