Renewed demand for coal: energy security imperative or environmental catastrophe?

Demand for coal grew significantly in the last year amid escalating gas prices and market turbulence. For many countries, both advanced and emerging economies, coal remains a vital fuel for electricity generation and industrial processes. Given the urgency to decarbonise energy value chains, how does this increased demand for coal impact the industry’s net-zero commitments? How will it impact the energy landscape? Is there place for coal in the future energy mix? And can clean coal technologies help change the bad press that coal receives?

Attendee insights: Energy leaders discuss the merits and demerits of coal in the energy mix and the way forward for clean production of coal.

New era for roads and transportation

To meet net-zero targets and the needs of a growing urban population, transformative thinking and innovation is necessary for both the mobility market and its accompanying infrastructure. Electric vehicles are expected to be the technology that revolutionises the energy landscape. However, can the positive factors encouraging the adoption of electric transportation provide the necessary support for building the needed infrastructure? How can the transportation-electricity relationship be reinvented in the coming decades, and can current electric power and charging business models support the investment needed for future projects?

Attendee insights: Roads, transportation and mobility industries share insights on the investment and infrastructural upgrades required to cater to the future mobility market.

Energy system of the future: integrating net-zero goals into business strategies

The impact of climate change is already being felt across the world. Unseasonal rains, floods and heatwaves have caused significant damage across the world and continue to do so. The loss and damage to people, infrastructure and countries is monumental. As part of COP, countries have started to articulate ambitious plans as part of national agendas against climate change. These goals are challenging and require energy companies to turn these ambitions into actions.

Are ambitious plans adequate to achieve climate change goals? Is enough being done by energy companies to develop an action plan to achieve national agendas? What new initiatives are being planned? What must be done to ensure plans move from paper to action?

Attendee insights: Hear from energy leaders on how they are integrating net-zero and climate change goals into business strategies.

What is in store for refineries of Asia?

Refining typically accounts for 3% of global energy sector carbon emissions. Asia, which holds 35% of the world's refining capacity, accounts for 43% of refining emissions. As the demand for oil combustion expected to decrease, petrochemicals will become the main driving force behind oil demand growth. However, Asian refineries are continuing to expand rapidly, even constructing large new facilities with the intention of operating for at least 50 years. What does the future hold for Asian refineries? How are these refineries adapting their business strategies? Will integrated refineries continue to be successful in the long term?

Attendee insights: Convening the region’s key refining and petrochemical leaders, this session will delve deeper into the outlook for refineries in Asia.

Revolutionising and scaling gas infrastructure

India is investing $40 billion in gas pipelines, LNG terminals and exploration & production to meet net-zero emission goal by 2070. The investment will more than double the gas pipeline network to 34,600 km and increase LNG imports terminal capacity to 62 million tonnes per annum by 2024 and increase piped natural gas (PNG) connections to 60 million by 2030. What policy reforms are being made to attract investments in gas infrastructure? With its huge import dependence, how will India feed the massive gas infrastructure it is building? What are the opportunities for public and private sectors?

Attendee insights: A critical discussion on India’s investments in upgrading its gas infrastructure as it transitions into a gas-based economy.

Fostering a thriving offshore wind sector

Despite its vast potential, offshore wind remains largely untapped as a global renewable energy resource. According to GWEC Market Intelligence, only the European Union has set a long-term goal to 2050 for 300 GW of offshore wind. With only 35 GW of offshore wind installed in the world today, there is a wide gap to close. Can the industry accelerate tapping this potential? What are the limitations to offshore wind’s growth?

Attendee insights: Offshore wind technology has improved immensely, but as aspirations grow, so do questions about deployment, delivery, and scalability; especially for emerging economies.

India’s Biofuel economy roadmap

India is expected to become the third largest producer of ethanol by 2023, according to projections by the IEA. However, there remains a great deal of uncertainty around potential for biofuels to scale up to the next level and create an impact. While biofuels adoption in India is primarily policy driven, what investment considerations are needed to achieve adoption at scale? How is the fuel vs food security conflict being addressed? What collaboration opportunities can be leveraged? Do the benefits justify the costs – on the economy and biodiversity?

Attendee insights: Understand the strategic importance of biofuels in India’s energy security strategy, and challenges and possibilities for adoption at scale.

Centrality of CGD in India’s Gas Story

CGD now covers 98% of the population and 88% of total geographical area of India. Accounting for 20% of gas consumption, CGD is expected to grow at >10% CAGR over next 10 years, to double its share in India’s gas consumption. Centrality of CGD and its role across the four pillars of India’s Energy Future access, efficiency, sustainability, and security is unquestionable. An integrated approach in mission mode will be important for CGD to realize its potential as India reimagines, reorganises, and restructures its energy architecture.
