WhyAttend

Energy-intensive industrials across North America are under increasing pressure from investors, policymakers and customers to show how they plan to decarbonize.

Increasing cost of capital for those that lag behind, legislative deadlines at a local or federal level and emerging opportunities for premium products and services – all are drivers of current activity.

But to achieve this without damaging competitivity, leaders in cement, steel, O&G, chem, glass, paper and need to see realistic, competitive routes to decarbonization.

If you’re tasked with exploring possible routes to lowering co2, or are an investor or technology disruptor engaging around decarbonization, join 200+ peers at this technology-neutral summit to find your route forward:

  • Find out about the competitive industrial co2 business models and projects that early movers are developing across the region
  • Get expert interpretation of emerging policy, funding and incentives packages
  • Find out how others are implementing roadmaps to decarbonize industrial heat, energy-intensive processes and legacy assets
  • Learn about market opportunities for co2
  • Build your hit list of next-gen innovations and market-ready net zero technologies
  • Get to the heart of funding decarbonization at-scale

At Decarb Connect North America you’ll join industrials, investors, technologists, service providers, advisors and policy makers to forge a competitive right route to net zero.

“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

  • Policy sense-check:  explore emerging incentives for hard to abate sectors
  • Learn from early energy efficiency, CCUS, electrification and hydrogen projects
  • What tech are industrial competitors and investors backing & why?
  • How to convert your strategy into investable projects
  • Where’s the market? Hear from your current/future buyers of net zero materials
  • Work out how to access finance from pilots to full scale projects
  • Which future carbon reuse market models can work for your business?
