This conference is designed to discuss ways in which clean electricity and electrification will be essential in reducing emissions globally to net zero.

As the devastaing loss of life and habitats caused by climate change continues to increase, many countries and businesses are responding by setting bold commitments to reach net zero by 2050, as well as aiming to reduce emissions significantly by 2030. Additionally, many new policies will be introduced to tackle the climate crisis in the lead up to the UN’s COP26 climate talks. However, achieving decarbonisation may be easier for some countries and businesses than others, with many counting on major advances in technologies, innovation, support, and collaboration to achieve this ambitious goal.

This timely conference will provide insights into how businesses and countries are making net zero into a reality, whilst showcasing their achievements so far, and exploring what other actions still need addressing at COP26 to drive further acceleration. The interactive format of this event means you’ll be able to engage with speakers and other delegates throughout the day.
