Dcarbonise Week, the virtual sustainability summit, will take place from 4-8 October.
The first three days of the virtual summit will discuss renewable and low carbon energy.
Key sessions will include: ‘The Green Recovery and Just Transition’, ‘Offshore Wind: The stakes have never been higher’, ‘Decarbonising heat’, ‘One billion seconds to decarbonise: What is the investment community doing about it?’, ‘The Road to COP26 and Net Zero’, ‘From oil and gas to energy integration’, ‘Decarbonising industry: Scotland’s Answer’, ‘Net zero – impossible goal? Tales from the cities and regions’, ‘Let’s talk hydrogen’ Hydrogen in action’, ‘Decarbonising the supply chain’ and ‘Land, sea, and air: Decarbonising transport’.
Speakers will include Chris Stark, CEO, Climate Change Committee; Baroness Brown of Cambridge the offshore wind sector champion; Bryony Livesey, challenge director, Industrial Decarbonisation, UKRI; Ragne Low, head of Heat Planning and Delivery and more.
Jonathan Heastie (pictured), energy and marine portfolio director at RX Global, said: “We urge you to save the date of this pre-COP26; dip into our online agenda and pick the sessions that reflect your interests or those about which you know very little but are eager to find out more.
“In the absence of in-person events we have continued to bring messages from key stakeholders in the industries we serve. The thirty webinars All-Energy/Dcarbonise held between May 2020 and the end of March this year resulted in well over 18,000 registrations and more than 20,000 views. We felt it was important to take pre-COP26 messages from the key stakeholders who would normally speak at our in-person event and bring them virtually to our loyal exhibitors, speakers and supporters. All are pre-cursors for things getting back to normal when we hold All-Energy and Dcarbonise at SEC Glasgow on 11 and 12 May 2022.”
Heastie added: “We would like to thank our brand sponsors – ScottishPower, Shepherd and Wedderburn and Ørsted; and our session sponsors Hitachi ABB Power Grids; iXBlue, Kellas Midstream; Driving the Electric Revolution Industrialisation Centres, Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN), and SWEP for their support for Dcarbonise Week.”
