EIC’s Principal Supporting Partner
Ahead of this year’s COP26 summit, EIC have partnered with DNV on a LIVE series of webinars. Together, we aim to promote industry awareness and address the key factors surrounding the future of the global energy sector and the work, we as an industry, must continue to do in lowering carbon emissions and tackling our net zero targets.
Road to COP26: Megatrends shaping the World of Energy
The increasing social and political pressure to reduce emissions has made decarbonization a main objective for all, however looking at decarbonization alone will not be enough to meet our 2050 targets - digitalization and decentralization must also be added into the mix.
During this webinar our panel of experts will discuss these three key trends, and why the integration of an increasingly complex and varied range of generating assets together with the deployment of IT and digital solutions is key to our future low-carbon global economy.
