    Emerging Technologies for Net Zero

    Innovation & Technology
    As the full range of industrial sectors pursue net-zero strategies, multiple technology pathways are emerging (e.g., electrification, hydrogen, CCUS). Progress along these pathways is occurring at a slower than expected pace, however, stymied in many cases by high costs and regulatory uncertainty. This session explores the most promising technologies for achieving net zero, cost-reduction levers that can improve their economic viability and thus accelerate deployment, and potential synergies between them that can enable new commercial models.
