Margaux Moore


Head of the Energy Transition Research Group

Margaux Moore is the Head of Energy Transition Research Group at Trafigura, one of the largest physical commodities trading groups in the world. In her role, she assesses the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition, focusing on the evolution of decarbonised transport, the integration of renewables and storage in power generation and the adoption of carbon capture and utilisation. This includes studying the potential of hydrogen, with the aim to develop and accelerate the commercial adoption of the molecule across the spectrum of Trafigura’s activities in trading, logistics and retail fuelling. Margaux also leads the Group’s internal power ventures fund, investing in disruptive technologies and businesses in the energy transition. She joined Trafigura in 2015 as a graduate having starting her career as a metals operator in Latin America and Singapore.

    Why the Hydrogen Rainbow Is a Useless Metric

    Green, blue, grey, all the way to yellow, for a colorless gas hydrogen has a surprising array of colors attached to it. What started as a set of nicknames has become an arcane code list for provenance, but is it time to consciously set aside this approach to hydrogen production? The risk of a fragmented market has never been more prominent, and hydrogen seems to have been engulfed by the approach more than any other commodity. And the core idea of a hydrogen economy, run on a clean-burning fuel, seems to have been lost in a battle for validity. Join us as we discuss the pitfalls and shortfalls of the hydrogen rainbow.

    Hydrogen and IMO 2050

    International Maritime Organizations 2050 goals for decarbonizing shipping require GHG emissions to drop by half compared with 2008. Low-carbon hydrogen carriers like ammonia and methanol can meet the challenge but they require ship and harbor redesign. What measures are necessary to accommodate hydrogen carriers? How does this impact shipping operations? Where are the technologies that can propel low carbon shipping? How can the industry navigate through these obstacles?
