Wednesday, March 13, 2024
Venue: One Whitehall Place, London, UK
Reception: Canada House, Trafalgar Square

The 14th annual Canada UK Energy Summit will explore avenues for advancing bilateral commercial collaboration, including to bolster energy security. Discussions will cover industrial decarbonization, hydrogen production and use, carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) and clean electrification technologies.

One hundred and twenty pre-qualified company representatives will be invited to participate, in addition to thirty Canadian and British government representatives who are responsible for the advancement of policy and funding frameworks. The Summit will include a business ‘mission’ of 25 Canadian entepreneurs, some of whom will present during the afternoon session.

The Summit will cover the following themes:

  • Security and transition: Advancing the Canada UK collaboration.
  • Shades of hydrogen and clean fuels.
  • Advancing CCUS projects in the UK and Canada.
  • Low and zero emissions electrification

Why attend?

  • Hear from sector leaders on developments in the UK and Canadian markets.
  • Learn about R&D and commercial opportunities, including for emerging technologies and applications.
  • Explore collaboration on industrial hubs with a goal of improved commercial and policy alignment.
  • Access dedicated networking sessions.

Background

The Canada UK Energy Summit was founded in 2011 to advance transatlantic commercial and policy cooperation. The Summit includes participation from industry, finance and government from Canada, the UK and globally.

Reception

A networking reception will take place following the Summit in the grand foyer of Canada House (the Canadian High Commission) on Trafalgar Square.

UK industrial cluster seminar and industrial site visit

An aim of the Canada UK Energy Summit is to provide a forum for generating commercial opportunities for Canadian exporters. The Summit will include a training seminar for a delegation of Canadian CCUS and hydrogen companies on UK industrial clusters, including how participate in decarbonization projects.

Following the Summit on March 13th, the Canadian delegation will conduct a site visit on March 14 & 15 to the Net Zero Teesside industrial Custer.

  • The Honourable Ralph Goodale, High Commissioner for Canada in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
 
1:15 pm

Canada UK collaboration
Industry and government are working to advance the development of new energy technologies in efforts to meet our emissions targets. This includes hydrogen and supporting technologies and infrastructure projects, such as CCUS, clean electrification, SMRs and clean fuels that will be essential for decarbonizing industrial sectors. The scale of the transformation is unrecognizable to what was happening only a few years ago. Panelists will discuss the frameworks, technologies and financing that will facilitate the transition to a low carbon industrial economy, including initiatives to expand Canada UK cooperation and enhance energy security.

Industrial decarbonization catalysts: Hydrogen, sustainable fuels and CCS 
Electrification – clean power – provides a near-term pathway for emissions reductions in many sectors including transport and the built environment. But decarbonizing through switching to low carbon fuels, including clean hydrogen, sustainable biofuels and carbon capture and storage is expected to play a critical role in ‘hard-to-decarbonize’ sectors such as heavy industry and medium- and heavy-duty freight. Even in scenarios with ambitious electrification, it is estimated that more than half of energy demand in 2050 may need to be met with clean fuels and carbon capture to meet a net-zero goal. The panel will examine how hydrogen, sustainable fuels and carbon capture projects co-exist and evolve at scale in industrial ecosystems in Canada and the UK and their nexus with the broader low-carbon fuel sector.

3:25 pm

Advancing CCUS projects in the UK and Canada
Strengthened climate goals and new investment incentives are delivering unprecedented momentum for CCUS. Capture, storage and removal technologies will play an important role in meeting net zero targets, including as one of few solutions to tackle emissions from heavy industry and to remove carbon from the atmosphere. The use of lower carbon fuels such as natural gas in industrial processes, and expansion of low to zero carbon electrification, offer compelling avenues for the production of hydrogen and clean fuels. The panel will discuss how to advance these technologies and projects in Canada and the UK and explore the collaboration between the two territories.

About the Summit organisers The Canada UK Energy Summit is an initiative of the Canada Europe Roundtable for Business (CERT). Founded in 1999, CERT has served as the private sector architect of the Canada EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CERT), of which the Canada UK relationship represents the largest commercial component. CERT and its sister organization The Energy Roundtable, help define the Canadian energy sector’s role in domestic affairs and in global energy markets. Our annual conference series gather leaders from the energy sector to review industry developments, facilitate networking and explore business opportunities. For further information consult:
