Energy security net zero and the role of industry

— Experts discuss the tensions between achieving net zero and energy security.

The global energy sector faces a defining moment. Rising energy costs and inflation, and the impact of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on energy markets, have highlighted the urgency of achieving energy security, whilst delivering affordable energy and decarbonizing the global economy.

Addressing the challenges around supply dependency and maintaining progress towards long-term net zero targets, will require investment in technology, innovative solutions, and collaboration between governments and industry.

This discussion explores the role of industrial technology development and deployment and whether it can deliver the pace and scale of change required to unlock a secure and sustainable, low-carbon future. 

Key questions discussed include:

  • How can urgent concerns about national energy security be balanced with important longer-term net zero targets?

  • What has been the impact of the pandemic and the energy crisis on investment in low-carbon technologies and infrastructure?

  • Are recent energy price rises accelerating or slowing down the transition to low carbon energy solutions?
