The North-east of Scotland’s energy transition is a pathway towards the global transformation of the energy sector from fossil-based to zero-carbon by the second half of this century.
Cities like Aberdeen are an integral part of the solution. With a strong competitive advantage honed through our highly successful track record in R&D, innovation, technology development and internationalisation, to the region being home to the highest concentration of energy supply chain companies globally – alongside the £27m funding for the Aberdeen Energy Transition Zone and the first of its kind North Sea Transition Deal - we have the potential to accelerate the development of a world-leading energy transition cluster.
Hear the findings from the Chamber's 34th Oil and Gas Energy Transition Survey, the longest running report of its kind in the UK, in partnership with KPMG, and learn what the latest data is telling us from business optimism to employment trends in the UK continental shelf and internationally to the sector’s approach to diversification and the impact of CV19.
This event will focus on how we rebuild our economy and address the pressing climate emergency. Whether we call it green economic recovery or build back better, it's about jobs for the future, decarbonising our key industries and creating opportunities for our people and communities.
