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

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

How do we create an agile, integrated and interdependent energy system to capitalize on domestic opportunities and global markets?

Join a panel of experts as they dig into the insights and analyze the recommendations made in the Growing Green Energy Technology report, produced by the Technology Steering Board, Net Zero Technology Center and Accenture.

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

The successful realization of these innovations will ultimately lead to greater cost competitiveness, create domestic and international supply chain opportunities, and provide low-carbon jobs.

Virtual event – free registration: Thursday 15 September 10:30 – 12:00 (BST)
