Details on the 14th annual Canada UK Energy Summit will be announced shortly. For questions related to the event please send your enquiry to: email@example.com
The 13th annual Canada UK Energy Summit gathered 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 participated, in addition to thirty Canadian and British government representative who are responsible for the advancement of policy and funding frameworks in the aforementioned areas. The Summit includes a business ‘mission’ of Canadian SMEs who will attend the event, some of whom presented 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 addressed the following key themes:
The conference included an innovators session, where Canadian entrepreneurs discussed how their technologies are solving real world business problems.
A networking reception took place at the Canadian High Commission on Trafalgar Square following the Summit from 5:45-7:30pm.

|1:25 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’.The government view:

|2:30 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.

|3:15 pm||Networking break|
|3:45 pm||Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) and carbon dioxide removal (CDR)
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.
Session chair: Dr. Niall Mac Dowell, Professor in Energy Systems Engineering, Imperial College London

Canadian entrepreneurs will discuss how their energy technology solutions are solving real world business problems.
