Energy Voice and NZTC unveil ‘Technology Powering North Sea Transition Deal’

There is no single solution to achieving net zero. The growth of affordable and low-carbon energy will be driven by innovative technology.

How do we create a flexible, integrated, interdependent energy system to take advantage of domestic opportunities and global markets?

Join a panel of experts as they delve into the insights and analyze the recommendations made in the Technology Driving Green Energy Growth report produced by the Technology Leadership Council, Net Zero Technology Center and Accenture.

The report, which was launched on 13 September, highlights the opportunities in hydrogen, floating offshore wind systems and carbon capture and storage technologies, exploring the innovative solutions needed to meet the commitments of the North Sea Transition Agreement.

Successful implementation of these innovations will ultimately lead to greater cost competitiveness, create opportunities for domestic and international supply chains, and secure low-carbon jobs.

Virtual Event – Free Registration: Thursday 15 September 10.30am – 12.00pm (BST)
