Energy Voice and NZTC Unveil ‘Technology Driving North Sea Transition Agreement’

There is no single solution to deliver net zero. Low-carbon, affordable energy growth will be driven by innovative technology.

How do we create an agile, integrated and interdependent energy system to capitalize on national opportunities and global markets?

Join a panel of experts as they delve into the knowledge and discuss the recommendations made in the Technology Driving Green Energy Growth report, produced by the Technology Leadership Board, Net Zero Technology Center and Accenture.

The report, which launches on September 13, highlights opportunities in hydrogen, floating offshore wind power and carbon capture and storage technologies, exploring the innovative solutions needed to deliver on North Sea Transition Agreement commitments.

The successful realization of these innovations will ultimately lead to increased cost competitiveness, create domestic and international supply chain opportunities, and secure low-carbon jobs.
