Clean energy at the ONS Centre Court

The ONS Centre Court is a conference arena in the middle of the exhibition venue. This intimate stage offers short, interesting talks with a high emphasis on clean energy issues.

Green opportunities

16 sessions each lasting for 90 minutes with 15-minute presentations and discussions provides expert updates on a number of conceptual, academic and political topics. The central focus is on renewables, sustainable solutions, cleaner oil and gas production, alternative fuels in transport sector, CCS and more.

Bjørn Kj. Haugland, EVP and Chief Sustainability Officer of the DNV GL Group is chair of the committee developing the Centre Court programme. He sees great potential for clean energy to build on the huge expertise in the oil and gas sector.

“I would like us to promote the opportunities that lie in the green shift. ONS is a fantastic global meeting place for the oil and gas sector, and the aim is to make ONS increasingly associated with a holistic view of energy, where oil, gas and renewable energy can go hand in hand,” he says.
