Future-Proofing Energy Assets: Repurposing for low-carbon

Wednesday, 20 March

1:30 pm - 2:00 pm (CST) / 20/mar/2024 06:30 pm - 20/mar/2024 07:00 pm

Repurposing of energy assets to enable low-carbon energy projects is an increasingly common strategy across the energy sector. In upstream examples include re-use of aging facilities for hydrogen or CO2 processing and transport, or for CO2 storage in reservoirs. Downstream examples include converting refineries to produce hydrogen or biofuels / Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), while in the power sector, utilizing coal or other thermal sites for renewables and desalination projects offers opportunities in some regions. Which drivers enable industry players to take advantage of their existing assets in this way? What regulatory support is most helpful? Which regions offer the most potential?
