Accelerating industrial decarbonisation amid energy crisis and economic uncertainty
21-23 February 2023 | London, UK
Panel discussions | Private roundtables | Site visits | 2 Day conference
Hard-to-abate industrials, policy makers, tech companies, energy and other solutions providers will meet in London in February for the Decarb Catalyst conference.
Over two days of in-person panel discussions and private discussion roundtables, participants will explore the status of delivering on decarbonisation pathways to 2025 in an energy critical climate including these key questions:
2022 has seen a major shift in landscape with heavy emitters, already used to operating in tight margins, in many cases having to increase energy spend threefold or more. This has the potential to change everything in terms of short term decarbonisation goals.
The Decarb Catalyst conference will explore the changed landscape for industrial decarbonisation initiatives and in what ways energy prices are catalysing or remodelling pathways to 2025 to 2030.
Key questions driving the discussion:
Whether you are an industrial emitter actively pursuing a decarbonisation pathway, or part of the support network, Decarb Catalyst is the only place to meet the decision-makers and influencers of all the key stakeholders.
