London 2022

Wednesday, October 19th 1:00-5:30pm
Canada House, London, UK

The 13th annual Canada UK Energy Summit will gather Canadian companies with their UK counterparts to explore industrial decarbonization collaboration and business opportunities for low carbon electrification, hydrogen and carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS). One hundred pre-qualified company representatives will participate, in addition to twenty-five Canadian and British government representative who are responsible for the advancement of policy and funding frameworks in the aforementioned areas. The Summit will include a business ‘mission’ of Canadian SMEs who will attend the event, some of whom will present during the afternoon innovators session.

A principal aim of the Summit is to expand export opportunities for Canadian firms into the UK market and strengthen bilateral commercial cooperation. The Summit will cover the following key themes:

  • Security and transition: Can a Canada UK energy partnership be a model for the world?
  • Industrial decarbonization
  • The role of electrification and hydrogen in a clean energy transition
  • Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS)

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 between industrial hubs in Canada and the UK, with a goal of improved commercial  and policy alignment.
  • Access dedicated business networking sessions.

The conference will include an innovators session, where Canadian entrepreneurs will discuss how their  technologies are solving real world business problems.

Summit Reception

A networking reception will take place at the Canadian High Commission on Trafalgar Square following the Summit from 5:45-7:30pm.

Programme

Wednesday, October 19
Canada House, London
      MC Jason Langrish, President, The Energy Roundtable
      1:00 pm Opening remarks by H.E. Ralph Goodale, P.C., High Commissioner for Canada in the United Kingdom
      1:10 pm The unprecedented transformation of industry
Industry and government are working to advance the development of hydrogen and CCUS technologies and projects; notably, to decarbonize industrial sectors whilst protecting, and creating, jobs. The scale of the transformation is unrecognizable to what was happening only a few years ago. Panelists will discuss the frameworks, technologies and investments that will facilitate the transition to a low carbon industrial economy, including treatment of industrial ‘hubs’.

  • Andy Noseworthy, Assistant Deputy Minister, Clean Technologies, ISED (Canada)
  • Lee McDonough, Director General, Net Zero Strategy and International, BEIS (invited)
      2:15 pm Industrial decarbonization: The role of hydrogen in the clean energy transition
Now is the time to scale up technologies and bring down costs to allow hydrogen to become widely used. But for hydrogen to make a significant contribution to clean energy transitions, it needs to be adopted in sectors where it is almost completely absent, such as transport, buildings, and power generation. Its production also needs to be decarbonized where possible, including through the use of low to zero carbon electricity sources. Demand for hydrogen, which has grown more than threefold since 1975, continues to rise – almost entirely supplied from fossil fuels. The production of hydrogen poses a challenge, as it is responsible for CO2 emissions equivalent to those of the United Kingdom and Indonesia combined. The panel will examine how hydrogen projects are evolving and scaling in Canada and the UK.

  • Brent Lakeman, Director, Hydrogen Initiative, Edmonton Global
  • Satvinder Flore, Executive Vice-President – Energy, Resources & Industry, WSP Canada
  • Grant Strem, Chairman & CEO, Proton Technologies
  • Chris Thompson, Director, Clean Growth, BEIS (tbc)

Session chair: Dr. Michaela Kendall, CEO, Adelan and UK Hydrogen Champion at Mission Innovation, BEIS (tbc)

      3:00 pm Networking break
      3:30 pm Advancing low carbon industrial solutions – what are investors looking for?

  • Brookfield Asset Management (invited)
  • HYCAP (invited)

In conversation with: Anurag Gupta, Chief Risk Officer, Sequoia Investment Management

      3:45 pm Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS)
Strengthened climate goals and new investment incentives are delivering unprecedented momentum for CCUS, with plans for more than 100 new facilities announced in 2021. CCUS 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. Although recent progress is encouraging, the planned pipeline of projects would fall well short of delivering the 1.7 billion tonnes of CO2 capture capacity deployed by 2030 in the Net Zero by 2050 scenario. The panel will discuss how to advance projects in Canada and the UK and explore the collaboration between the two territories.

  • Dr. Bryony Livesey, ISCF Director – Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge, UK CCS Knowledge Centre
  • Angela Hepworth, Commercial Director, DRAX
