Why Attend

Energy-intensive industrials across Europe are responsible for 20% of the EU’s emissions and about 25% of final energy consumption, but they are also the key enablers of the various European net zero targets.

Whilst emissions are falling, without major efforts and investments industrials will not be able to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

Its time for the industrial eco-system to come together to define the right pathways to our net zero future.

If you are tasked with setting and deploying a decarbonisation roadmap, identifying concrete actions to lower CO2 – or you’re a technology disruptor or investor looking for collaborators – join 350+ peers at DCEU. You’ll discover:

  • How heat and energy-intensive industries are building their decarbonisation roadmaps
  • Which clusters and consortia are open to new customers and offer opportunities to capture, transport, store or re-purpose co2 emissions?
  • Which new emerging co2 business models are most competitively sustainable?
  • Identify regulatory incentives and policies that are geared to speeding up decarbonisation
  • Source funding options and partners for your decarbonisation plans
  • Evaluate your list of next-gen innovations and market-ready net zero solutions and technologies
  • Understand what is required of you and how to get ready for next gen decarbonisation tech like CCUS, hydrogen and more

“We’re usually pretty siloed, but we know we’ll need to work across our whole value chain to decarbonise… we need to work out how to get commitments & then to make sure that these projects benefit all participants in terms of reporting”

“There’s no strategy in “electrify – just use more renewables”.  I need reliable and powerful energy sources that can really drive industrial heat consistently… and I need it to be cost effective”

“To hit NetZero by 2050 means having major pilots completed in the next 5 years… emissions unlikely to be static in that time so the scale of this challenge will only increase”

Key Themes

  • Set Strategy: How global companies are shaping their sustainability and net zero approaches while enhancing competitiveness?
  • Policy and incentives: How can leveled playing field in Europe be created to enable investments and accelerate transition?
  • Investments and funding: how can the right and great ideas get funded and scaled up?
  • What can be done to decarbonize today: Energy management and energy efficiency re-worked
  • Clusters & Consortia business models: meet successful decarbonisation hubs and projects from across Europe in steel, glass, refining etc
  • Value chain decarbonisation: Get a holistic view on CO2 emitted across your whole value chain
  • Replicate big technology deployment and success: Meet hydrogen projects and brainstorm how this success can be replicated in your company and industry
  • Circular Economy: designing your business for carbon transparency and circularity
  • 360 Degrees Panel and Live Q&A: Get ready to deploy insights from leaders across industry, technology, investments and advisory groups
