It’s a year until COP 26 comes to Scotland. What an opportunity for the nation, and the North-east in particular, to demonstrate how it is ideally placed to be a global player in delivering the research, technology and new energy solutions to enable the drive towards net zero.
Europe’s oil & gas capital, leading the world in energy transition
The word transition has become synonymous, particularly in this region, with energy; as we look to utilise the incredible skills, research strengths and supply chain built up in oil & gas positioning ourselves to play a leading role in the move towards net zero, in the UK and around the world.
The Aberdeen city region is known globally as a place that’s entrepreneurial, dynamic and innovative. A place that gets things done and we’re doing so again, developing the new energy technologies that will help this to be achieved.
Floating offshore wind, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, decommissioning, our global leadership position in subsea engineering, plans for the Energy Transition Zone - we have all the credentials. What we need now is the full backing of Scottish and UK governments to confirm Aberdeen as the country’s key hub for this work and to underpin the intent with the necessary investment. We already have the £62m commitment from Holyrood to support diversification and this needs to be echoed from Westminster in the long-awaited North Sea sector deal.
This online business breakfast event will bring together the major stakeholders and leaders that are making this happen.
Translating thinking into action
Our flagship business breakfast series, brought to you in partnership with the University of Aberdeen Business School, provides a learning and networking forum to discuss the topics essential to successful economic growth in our region.
