About this event

Tuesday 19th October – Sponsored by Humber Zero

Physical event start: 8:30am

Virtual event start: 9:00am

We need the global transition to clean power to be at least four times faster than it is at present. The power sector accounts for a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. As demand for energy grows, the power sector must grow and decarbonise in parallel. Dramatic cost reductions in solar and wind energy mean that renewables are now cheaper than new coal in most parts of the world, and bring benefits via improved air quality, energy access and security, and creating jobs in new industries.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Host: Jenny Sutcliffe, Principal Consultant Regulatory Affairs, Phillips 66
  • Emma Pinchbeck, CEO, Energy UK

Join us to discover more about the future of energy from industry experts, sharing their thoughts of how the energy mix, working alongside important technology advancements and infrastructure, will empower our region to lead the world in a global transition.

Keynote speaker Emma Pinchbeck is a leading expert in whole-economy decarbonisation and the energy transition, and will be highlighting the role of Energy UK, the current status quo of the UK energy sector and how our energy systems are changing.

Ruth Herbert will discuss the vital role Carbon Capture & Storage Association plays in supporting the development of a UK carbon capture supply chain to support domestic jobs and local manufacturing, helping to deliver clean regional growth and the industrial transition to a low-carbon economy, boosting UK prosperity and supporting the government’s ‘levelling up’ agenda helping to achieve the UK’s climate goals.

David Theakstone will present the collaborative impact of the industry-led decarbonisation project Humber Zero, and how it will provide a low-carbon industrial future for our region, job creation and contribution to the local economy.

Clark Macfarlane will discuss Siemens Gamesa’s crucial role in the green energy transition, including achieving those critical offshore wind targets by 2030. How Siemens Gamesa is well prepared to face future challenges in the industry, with cutting-edge technological solutions bringing significant environmental benefits to its customers in the global transition toward a more sustainable and low-carbon economy.

Sophie Al-Mudallal will share why she applied for the Aura CDT and what role she would like to play in the future of the offshore wind sector, environmental protection and sustainability.
