The Energy Institute’s new conference, Powering Net Zero, is designed to discuss ways in which clean electricity and electrification will be essential in reducing emissions globally to net zero.
An increasing number of countries are making commitments to move to a net zero emissions economy. This is in response to climate science showing that in order to prevent the worst impacts of man-made climate change, greenhouse gas emissions must be eliminated, as simply reducing them is no longer sufficient. ‘Net zero’ means that any emissions are balanced by absorbing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere. In order to meet the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting average global temperature increases to well below 2C, global greenhouse gas emissions must reach net zero sometime between 2050 and 2070.
Electricity and electrification are central to any scenario in which this goal is achieved. The technologies already exist to decarbonise power generation systems and roll out clean electricity into heat and transport – now companies must finalise their strategies to ensure it is reached.
Attend this timely event to:
- Hear from expert speakers excelling in this area
- Gain key insights into the policies, technologies and people needed to reach net zero
- Network with professionals from across the energy sector
COVID-19 Update - Please note that this conference will take place either online or at the Energy Institute head office in London, depending on whether the government lockdown restrictions have been lifted. The Energy Institute has the technology in place to ensure that an online conference will easily facilitate networking with delegates from all over the world, provide interactive sessions with expert speakers, and include plenty of materials and question and answer sessions.
