Energy Transition and Decabonisation Forum

Energy Transition and Decabonisation Forum

Berlin, Germany
October 1st–2nd, 2020

Conference Overview

The world has made the transition from one major form of energy to another several times – from animal power and biomass to burning coal, and then to the increasing use of oil and gas. The replacement of those fuels with renewables marks the next historic shift. 

The EU has committed to a zero-carbon economy and a clean energy transition by 2050.

However, natural gas is still a fundamental for the EU energy sector, as it provides benefits which can’t currently be provided by renewable electricity. 

How can we open the door to a decarbonised future? Electrification has to be the key development to meet the Decabonisation targets. The energy transition will be enabled by information technology, smart technology, policy frameworks and market instruments.

Industrial companies must prepare for decabonisation by conducting a detailed review of all their capacities, resources, facilities and by looking at the availability of low-cost electricity, hydrogen, biomass, and carbon-storage capacity.

Our attendees will learn how to reduce fossil fuel consumption worldwide by improving end-use efficiency, conversion efficiency and by introducing renewable resources. How sector coupling can improve the efficiency and flexibility of the energy system, its reliability and adequacy as well as reduce the costs of decabonisation. Why Power-to-X is the carbon-neutral energy storage and sector coupling technology of the future.

Our speakers will reveal the key challenges and updates on the energy transition opportunities while networking with experts in the field.

Key topics:

  • Market design of a decarbonised electricity sector
  • How the COVID-19 crisis has changed the energy outlook and the decabonisation pathways?
  • COVID-19 effects on energy markets and investments decisions under uncertainty
  • The future of EU ETS – the European CO2 emission trading program. What will be its role in decarbonising power sector? How to make it more efficient?
  • Future of demand response and smart grids
  • Local flexibility platforms for electricity
  • Virtual energy community as a catalyst to faster energy transition and increased DER growth
  • Projection of European and World Energy Demand and how to secure the EU’s Energy and fuel supply
  • Renewable and decarbonised gases: what role and which perspectives?
  • What are the requirements to ensure optimal interactions and synergies between power and gas systems, from both a power-to-gas and gas-to-power perspectives?
