    Opportunities in Geothermal Energy for Oil & Gas Producers

    Even as environmental, social, and governance (ESG) pressures have driven many oil and gas companies to diversify away from hydrocarbons, demand for oil and gas is increasing, and US oil and gas companies have seen sharp increases in market capitalization. The oil and gas industry arguably employs the world’s premier engineering and technology capacity and ability to execute at scale to accelerate emissions reductions. What role should the governments of oil and gas producers play to meet short-term market demand and finance the energy transition? Can the oil and gas industry be the financial driver for energy and economic diversification?

    Floating Offshore Wind: What is it & does it work?

    Workshop Hydrogen/Clean Tech & Power

    Floating offshore wind is finally picking up steam and entering a commercial phase with the results of the first ever large-scale commercial auctions in France and the UK to be announced this year. In longer term the technology will become a new “game changer” with a significant capacity potential in markets with good wind resources across Europe, Asia Pacific, and the United States. However, the pace of global build-out will depend on the level of permitting activities and how quickly the sufficient dedicated supply chain will be built. This session will focus on the fundamentals of floating offshore wing technology, key drivers and inhibitors to its future growth, the competitive landscape, and high-level cost projections.

  • 04:30pm - 05:15pm (CST) / 09/mar/2022 10:30 pm - 09/mar/2022 11:15 pm

    10 Cleantech Trends in 2022

    Workshop Hydrogen/Clean Tech & Power

    Our Clean Energy Technology team of experts will present the top 10 cleantech trends expected this year in technologies that reduce carbon emissions and confront climate change.

    Trends covered in this session will include:

    - Supply chain challenges, trade barriers, and geopolitics drive new solar PV manufacturing capacity closer to the end markets

    - Wind technology innovation focuses on larger turbine outputs and new recyclable materials

    - 2022 becomes a tipping point for Green Hydrogen, triggered by upcoming policy quotas

    - CCUS gains traction as a decarbonization solution for a wider group of regions and industries

    - Corporates accelerate their investments in renewable assets

    Is Offshore Wind the New Juggernaut?

    Panel Hydrogen/Clean Tech & Power
    Offshore wind has matured in northern Europe and its development is accelerating in other geographies. As costs are falling and its competitiveness is increasing, many markets in Europe, the United States, and Asia are betting big on both bottom-fixed and floating technologies. However, increasing complexity, supply chain bottlenecks, insufficient infrastructure, and high commodity prices can slow down its development. What are the key challenges the industry will face? How can mature and emerging markets address them to meet the relatively lofty offshore wind ambitions?
