ONS Centre Court: A future-fit energy system – putting the puzzle together

We are seeking a low carbon future. At the same time, we must secure access to energy for all. But, different regions need different solutions. What does this imply for the energy systems of the future? What energy alternatives can we expect – who will make the investments and what will be the demand pattern of the global population? Democratization of energy, improved infrastructure and new technologies to push costs downwards are relevant issues. Let`s discuss how it`s all connected.

ONS Centre Court: Funding the energy future

No money – no action! It is usually true. So, where will money flow to push for investments and new activities in the energy markets? According to some, oil and gas will stay strong for long – is this also the opinion of the bankers? Will solid investments in renewables reduce access to capital for traditional energy sources, or will all profitable projects find financial solutions? How will climate risk change this picture?

Moderator: Christine Tørklep, Managing Director, Curie

ONS Centre Court: Lunch Battle: Long live the oil – but for how long?

The oil and gas industry will be around in the foreseeable future. However, there are different views on when we will see a reduction in demand due to displacement of oil. Will we see a demand destruction, or is this over exaggerated? It can be argued that oil and gas will decline rapidly due to, i.e. climate issues, new technologies and production cost of renewables. However, demand keeps growing. What will future societies require, and how?

The oceans can play a vital role in solving this issue. In this session we will explore the future concept of floating cities through a series of key notes and a workshop. Our ambition is to shed light on the concept of floating cities. We will discuss a key problem definition from different angles - from the engineer’s, the architect’s, the explorer’s and the population’s perspective, before engaging all participants in an interactive workshop.
