Canada UK Energy Summit, London

Wednesday, March 13, 2024 at One Whitehall Place, London, UK

The 14th annual Canada UK Energy Summit seeks to advance Canada-UK energy cooperation. Discussions will include trade in energy goods and collaboration on hydrogen production and use, notably, as it pertains to industrial decarbonization in concert with low carbon electrification and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS).

One hundred and twenty pre-qualified company representatives will participate, in addition to thirty association and government representatives who are responsible for the advancement of policy and fiscal frameworks.

A principal aim of the Summit is to provide a forum for generating business export opportunities for hydrogen, CCUS and clean energy firms, generate business partnerships and strengthen Canada UK collaboration. The Summit will include a business ‘mission’ of 25 Canadian innovators who will attend the event, and some will present during the afternoon session.

The Summit will cover the following key themes:

  • Energy security and transition: Advancing Canada UK collaboration.
  • Shades of hydrogen and clean fuels.
  • Advancing CCUS projects in the UK and Canada.
  • Zero emissions electrification

The Summit will include a training seminar for a delegation of Canadian entrepreneurs on the UK industrial cluster approach, including how participate in procurement and supply chain opportunities and register and enforce their IP in the UK market.

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.

Summit Reception

A networking reception will take place at the Canadian High Commission on Trafalgar Square following the Summit from 6:00-7:30pm.

Programme

Wednesday, March 13
One Whitehall Place, London
      MC Jason Langrish, President, The Energy Roundtable
      1:00 pm Opening remarks
      1:05 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 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 and technologies that are facilitating the transition to a low carbon industrial economy, including initiatives to expand Canada UK cooperation and enhance energy security.

The Government view (1:05 pm):

  • The Honourable Ralph Goodale, High Commissioner for Canada in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
  • Lord Callanan, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (Minister for Energy Efficiency and Green Finance), Department for Energy Security and Net Zero

Chair: Jason Langrish, President, Canada Europe Roundtable for Business & The Energy Roundtable

The private sector view (1:35 pm):

  • Heather Chalmers, President, Growth Markets, GE Vernova & President & CEO, GE Canada
  • Emma Pinchbeck, Chief Executive, ENERGY UK

Chair: Peter Tertzakian, Deputy Director, ARC Energy Research Institute

     2:05 pm Keynote address

  • László Varró, Vice President, Global Business Environment, Shell Scenarios Team, Shell Global
      2:30 pm

Shades of hydrogen and how they can advance demand for low-carbon fuels

Electrification – clean power – provides a near-term pathway for emissions reductions in many sectors including transport and the built environment. But clean fuels – low-carbon fuels that typically consist of clean hydrogen, advanced biofuels, liquid synthetic fuels, and renewable natural gas – are expected to play a critical role in ‘hard-to-decarbonize’ sectors such as 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 to meet a net-zero goal. The panel will examine how hydrogen projects are evolving and scaling in Canada and the UK and their nexus with the broader low-carbon fuel sector.

  • Andy Cornell, CEO, Advanced Biofuel Solutions Limited
  • Papari Devi, Head, Carbon Capture & H2, Hatch
  • John Picken, Business Development Director, Mitsubishi Power Europe

Session chair: Adel Muna, Director, Energy – Europe, Hatch

      3:15 pm Networking break
      3:40 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. Furthermore, CCUS offers compelling avenues for the production of hydrogen and clean fuels. The panel will discuss how these technologies and projects are being advanced in Canada and the UK and explore the potential for broader collaboration between the two territories.

  • Ran Narayanasamy, CEO, Petroleum Technology Research Centre
  • Jason Chadwick, Chief Commercial Officer, Entropy
  • Andy Lane, Vice President, CCUS, BP plc
  • Aniruddha Sharma, CEO, Carbon Clean

Session chair: Jemima Bruin-Bland, Global Lead CCUS & UK Energy Transition Strategy, Arup
