There is no single solution to deliver net zero. Affordable, low carbon energy growth will be driven by innovative technology.
How do we create an agile, integrated, interdependent energy system to capitalise on domestic opportunities and global markets?
Join a panel of experts as they delve into the insights and dissect the recommendations made in the Technology Driving Green Energy Growth report, produced by the Technology Leadership Board, Net Zero Technology Centre, and Accenture.
The report, which launches on 13th September, highlights opportunities in hydrogen, floating offshore wind and carbon capture and storage technologies, exploring the innovative solutions required to meet the North Sea Transition Deal commitments.
The successful realisation of these innovations will ultimately lead to greater cost competitiveness, create domestic and international supply chain opportunities and secure low carbon jobs.
Virtual event – free registration: Thursday 15th September, 10:30am – 12:00pm (BST)
