The impact of the energy crisis on industrial energy transition plans

Join Ben Moens from ENGIE Impact and Alex Cameron as they unpick how the energy crisis could affect industrial energy transition plans

Over the next couple of months, we’ll host a number of guests talking about their perspective on the energy and inflation crisis and its impact on decarbonisation and energy transition plans. In this first conversation on the issue, Ben Moens from Engie Impact joins and explores the impact of the energy crisis on industrials.

The discussion explores how alternative fuels (including a return to more fossil fuels in the short term) could play out, the potential for high gas prices to drive market reforms and how regulatory responses might bring some relief in the short term too.

The conversation also looks the growing sense amongst many industrials that the key to future success will be to increase self-sufficiency with more onsite/offsite renewables and smarter energy efficiency plans.

And finally, you’ll hear some thoughts on whether the crisis will affect investments in expensive deep decarbonisation plans like green hydrogen or CCS.

Quite simply – this is a great episode for those leading decarb and energy transition plans who want good insights to make their response truly robust.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonization around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonization ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans.
