Energy Transition Area

The Energy Transition Area (ETA) at this year’s Annual Conference will host three days of dynamic discussions and interactive sessions. This exclusive area is dedicated to professionals in the energy transition sector and beyond, who play a vital role in achieving net-zero emissions. The program which we have partnered on again this year with iCRAG, will encompass a variety of formats, including panel discussions, lightening talks, vendor presentations, and workshops. Lunchtime Panels will include a discussion on the evolving role of geoscience for a positive energy future, assessing the potential of Norwegian Offshore wind and bridging the gap between the energy transition and the oil and gas industry. Participants can expect insights into repurposing traditional geoscience for sustainable energy solutions, as well as discussions on the role of start-ups in supporting the transition. Interactive workshops with industry will focus on enhancing collaboration between industry and academia to prioritise research questions to accelerate the energy transition, alongside valuable career advice for young professionals entering this transformative field.

Lunchtime Panel Discussion 3: Stories for the Future – podcast/panel interview with Veslemoy Klavenes

Panel Discussion Why collaboration is key to achieving energy transition targets

Collective efforts are required for accelerating decarbonisation to achieve ambitious climate targets. The adoption and execution of energy transition projects is becoming more dependent on meaningful societal engagement with policymakers, legislators and civil society as a whole. As geoscientists and subsurface engineers, we are increasingly required to collaborate with stakeholders outside our immediate remit as we look to diversify the energy portfolio in order to achieve climate targets. 

Panel members representing a range of disciplines from geoscience, engineering, social science, and policy will highlight the importance of collaboration through a local case study.
