  • 9:05am
    Policy Forum: Faster, Deeper: What Should be the Policy Priorities for Net Zero?

    The last year has seen a significant swing in public sentiment towards to the challenge of addressing climate change with calls for urgent and far-reaching action from policymakers. And governments have responded with renewed commitments in the shape of ‘green new deals’, ‘net zero’ goals and pledges to end their contribution to climate change entirely. Sceptics point to the reality, however, that despite decades of efforts to curb greenhouse gases, emissions are rising. Why will this time be different? How are policymakers matching pledges with coherent and realistic action? How are they making their plans palatable to businesses and industry and consumers? Will green deals deliver in time to make a difference? What do policy makers see as the potential for coordinated international action to address climate and energy challenges, for instance, through recognition of ‘mutual interdependencies’, energy interconnections and shared infrastructure? What will be likely the impact of international climate meetings to include COP 26, and possible change of government in the US for global energy markets - will the US flip from fossil fuel leader to renewable advocate?

    Panel: Industrial Policy or Markets? Transition Perspectives - Mapping a Sustainable Pathway to Net Zero

    Achieving the ambitions enshrined in the new green deals and net zero commitments will require an unprecedented transformation of our economic system with as yet uncertain costs, and unclear consequences for the future of energy markets and the role of energy players within it. And while government pledges are strong in ambition, they remain scant in detail, with favoured options each carrying their own share of risk. Will green deals cut the muster, or is it time to consider a more impactful approach - an economy-wide carbon tax to incentivise heavy industry and businesses to decarbonise and to encourage consumer behavioural change? Is a carbon price the most cost-effective way to get us to curb emissions at the scale needed?  What does a net zero economy look like, how much will it cost, how will we get there? How do we ensure a coherent, system-wide approach that takes accounts of externalities such as natural capital? Where will energy companies old and new play in the system? Can the oil sector transition? Which utilities will survive the transition and how? How large will stranded assets be and who will have them? What is the risk of systemic collapse in the energy transition, and will resistance stop the transition in its tracks? Beyond a carbon tax, how else do you  incentive behavioural change to ensure consumers are part of the solution?

    The Big FT Debate: Is there a Role for Gas in a Net Zero Economy?

    Is gas the next stranded asset? Gas is viewed as a vital part of the energy transition while the problems relating to intermittency of renewables remain unresolved. Yet pressure on gas is growing from both investors and the public, with financiers considering whether to continue financing some forms of gas projects in future. Oil and gas companies, for their part, are putting their faith in gas continuing to play a significant role in the energy mix throughout the transition. Will we see strong sustainable demand for gas throughout the energy transition? How long is the gas bridge? Will the expansion of renewables be able to keep pace with growing energy demand without gas?

  • 12:20pm
    Panel: Mapping the Energy Transition in Asia – Implications for Global Energy Markets

    In the energy transition, what happens in Asia has major implications for the pace of change and whether global warming can be tamed. The Asia Pacific region, which includes India and China, has contributed to nearly half of the global annual CO2 emissions and is expected to account for 60% of the world’s growth in energy demand between now and 2040. Despite rising ambitions for renewables in the region, coal is expected to continue to play a prominent role, with new plans for coal in China equivalent to the entire EU capacity. And it’s not just in the dynamics of energy supply and demand that the region has an outsize role. With its ambition to lead the world with a new model for green growth, China has invested more in renewables than any other nation. It’s leadership position in the manufacture of green technologies including solar panels and wind turbines, as well as in batteries and electric vehicles (EVs) has enabled the cost of clean energy technologies to fall dramatically and could do the same for hydrogen. The global stakes are high. What is the pace of change in China? What is the pace of change in India? And what does it mean for the global energy markets and the transition to net zero? What does Chinese leadership of the energy transition mean, and will it continue? When will Chinese coal demand peak and will Chinese wind, solar and EV growth flatline or continue to grow exponentially? Will Asia kick its coal habit and will India succeed with its ambitious renewables and EV ambitions?

    Panel: Offshore Wind: Energy Gamechanger?

    Does offshore wind solve all renewable energy problems? The IEA calculates offshore wind can cover all global power needs by 2040, describing offshore wind as an energy gamechanger on a par with shale and solar. However, are forecasts too optimistic? Meanwhile, with more and more governments pushing towards subsidy free projects, how can developers still make money? How can current high costs, transmission, supply chain and other issues be addressed?

    Al Cook, Executive Vice President, Global Strategy & Business Development, Equinor
    Duncan Clark, Head of Region, UK , Ørsted

  • 2:50pm
    Panel: Hydrogen – Fourth Time Lucky?

    There's a huge amount of noise around hydrogen and numerous pilots but these waves of enthusiasm have been and gone before. How to overcome the high costs? And some opponents still raise safety concerns around basing energy systems on hydrogen. Our panel of experts discuss.

  • 4:00pm
    Panel: Energy Storage: Backbone of the Renewables Revolution?

    Energy storage has grown rapidly as renewables take up an increasing share of the power mix and are seen as a vital solution to bridging the gap and providing constant power when powering the gird with intermittent renewables such as wind and solar. The price of storage dropped significantly in recent years, yet the system-wide costs of storage combined with renewables are as yet still, for the most part, uneconomical when compared to alternative options: To what extent will storage solutions ramp up prospects for renewables to replace fossil fuels? How are technology (durability, life cycle, density, safety, etc), supply chain and other risks being addressed, and what are the prospects of more advanced battery solutions changing the cost equation? How are developers, utilities and investors coming to terms with project risk and how are hybrid solar-wind- battery hybrid projects changing the landscape for storage? Will storage ever become a viable complete solution to the challenge of variable renewables, or will they remain a niche product providing services to customer and the grid? Should bids for renewable projects include the need for ‘firming’ so that developers rather than consumers cover the storage related cost in future?

  • 4:30pm
    Panel: Where There’s Muck There’s Brass: Unlocking the Value of Carbon

    Capturing carbon from the burning of fossil fuels and industrial processes and turning it into useful products to include fuels, plastics, building materials, soil management and forestry has the potential to become a viable global business, creating incentives for large-scale emissions reductions.  Innovative companies, entrepreneurs and academics are leading the way, and the energy industry, charged with reducing carbon emissions at scale, is taking notice. What are the emerging pathways and the business case for cost effective, scalable and viable carbon utilisation, and the emerging business opportunities in to include co2-plastics, co2-fuels, co2- land use platforms and co-2 cement?. How can the market be encouraged and incentivised? What is the potential to reduce emissions?

    Rowena Sellens, CEO, Econic Technologies
    Zoe Jane Morrison, CEO, The Carbon Capture Machine
    Cameron Hepburn, Director, Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, University of Oxford

  • 5:00pm
    Panel: How are Investors Shaping the Energy Transition Debate?

    Institutional investors are increasingly incorporating ESG ratings in their investment decisions; yet these ratings are very varied, and as such, may not provide a comprehensive assessment of how sustainable or climate resilient a company is. In parallel, a number of shareholder groups have been formed to influence corporate strategies and actions on climate. In this concluding session, we will be discussing the role of investors in shaping the debate on energy transition and the tools they have to do so.

    • How can the investor community help achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement?
    • How do investors incorporate climate into their valuation frameworks?
    • Will there eventually be a correlation between effective corporate climate disclosures and financial performance? What is needed to achieve this?
