Breakout Session: Decarbonisation as a Driver of Economic and Social Development
Date & Time
Friday, June 16, 2023, 9:00 AM - 10:15 AM

We are at a crucial moment for the energy sector, including for the competitiveness of our industry. The energy and digital transitions that we are currently facing, are on their way to becoming the biggest social, economic, and industrial transformations in history. The energy transition is an industrial opportunity that will bring value and jobs to those countries that are ready to lead green markets across all sectors (renewables value chain, green hydrogen, electric mobility...). Electrification with renewables is the priority path for the decarbonization of our economy, as the International Energy Agency, the European Commission, and the United Nations affirm without any nuance. It is no longer just a climate issue but also responds to the urgent need for self-sufficiency and energy security, growth, and job creation.
