The Energiskiftet conference is focused on the transition towards a society based on renewable energy in Norway. It will address key topics such as carbon storage, hydrogen production, offshore wind, mineral production, and battery factories. The conference aims to explore business opportunities and challenges associated with this transition, and to discuss how the Norwegian industry can prepare for a future that relies on low-emission solutions and new business models. With the potential to create tens of thousands of new jobs, the conference will examine the realities of this shift away from traditional oil and gas operations, as well as the opportunities for sustainable growth. Over two days, participants will discuss the transferability of experience from the oil industry, how to meet the requirement for lower margins, which areas have the greatest potential for success, whether Norwegian industry can compete with international technology giants, and how to train qualified labor. The conference will also explore the crucial role of new wind and hydropower in covering the electrification of the shelf, the transition to electricity in industrial companies, and the development of new green industries.
Carbon storage, hydrogen production, offshore wind, mineral production, and battery factories. The Norwegian industry is preparing for a massive transition from fossil to renewable energy, supplemented by low-emission solutions and new business models. Forecasts indicate tens of thousands of new jobs, and optimists see this as an alternative to oil and gas operations. But what are the realities? Over two concentrated days, the conference “Energiskiftet” presents business opportunities and challenges on the path to a society based on renewable energy.
Some key issues addressed at the conference include:
- To what extent can experience from the oil industry be transferred to renewable energy businesses?
- How do developers and suppliers meet the requirement for lower margins at all levels?
- Which areas have the greatest potential for success, and when will the breakthrough occur?
- Can Norwegian industry compete against international technology giants?
- Is training of qualified labor required, and where will this come from?
- Is new wind and hydropower, with significant interventions in nature, crucial to covering the electrification of the shelf, the transition to electricity in industrial companies, and to new green industry?
