Supply Decarbonisation – Target 2030
Decarbonising our energy system is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Delivering the UK’s climate goals will require action by industry, supportive energy policies from governments, and suitable and sufficient regulation, together driving an unprecedented programme of investment.
The UK offshore oil and gas industry was one of the first industrial sectors to commit to the Government’s goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2050 in the UK and 2045 in Scotland. Since then, the basin has reduced its emissions by 20% since 2018 and assigned ambitious carbon and methane reduction targets through the North Sea Transition Deal.
Many of the low-hanging opportunities have been seized, but reaching our climate goals will only be achieved if we can collaborate, share ideas and expertise, and fully deliver the North Sea Transition Deal.
So, how can we make sure we continue to supply the nation with the energy it needs while bringing down the UK’s emissions? How can solutions like electrification from offshore floating wind, alternative fuels and methane management help decarbonise our energy system? And what energy policy is needed to help the sector get to net zero?
All of these issues and more will be covered in this new OEUK conference, comprising of presentations, exhibition, panel sessions, networking opportunities, a drinks reception, and OEUK’s annual Emissions Report launch.
Attendees and speakers will have the chance to get talking about the decarbonisation challenge, the role they can play, inform the debate, and explore how the offshore energy sector can shape – and lead – the UK’s shift to a low carbon future.
The need to balance decarbonisation with energy security and affordability has never been greater – and now is the time for action.
