The Decarbonization Trend: How the World is Changing

04 Jun , 12:00–13:15
Joining Forces to Advance Development
Congress Centre, conference hall D1
In partnership with Fortescue Future Industries

Climate change is affecting every continent, transforming economies and human lives. In recent years, various countries have undertaken priority initiatives to reduce their carbon footprints and are looking for solutions. Hydrogen is one possible answer. Hydrogen production and use based on renewable energy sources is a serious challenge that will primarily affect conservative economic sectors such as manufacturing, energy and transportation, while calling into question the very future of industrialization. The session will take a practical view of efforts to reduce CO2 emissions in key sectors of the Russian economy and hydrogen’s potential role. What are the current challenges facing the global energy sector? What are the possible forecasts for its future development? What are the prospects for the development of green energy in the Russian Federation and what support measures are needed? Is it possible to converge environmental and economic imperatives in manufacturing and energy companies? Can collaboration thrive in a time of competition and de-globalization, and what are the win-win industrial strategies to promote carbon neutrality without losing value? What progress is being made in the search for sources of financing, new technologies, and investment in innovation?
