THE 2022 OSLO ENERGY FORUM
Energy Transition after COP 26
15. - 17. February 2022
The aim of the Forum is to establish dialogue on the dilemmas that every part of the energy industry and the society around it are facing to accelerate the energy transition. This dialogue will include the senior decision-makers in industry, society, and youth leaders. We will focus on how to turn risks to opportunities through sustainable solutions. The focus for Day 1 is to set the scene for an open, honest discussion. The challenge of the energy transition appears almost impossible but the alternative for not achieving it is impossible.
Day 1 will start with a drive to the urgency and opportunity of making the shift from both an environmental, social and economic perspective before a discussion with some of the world’s most senior politicians for how they see the road forwards after COP 26.
The focus for Day 2 is the dilemmas we all face be it finance, industry, politics, or society leaders. What are the barriers they are each facing to accelerate the transition, are there opportunities to learn more from each other’s perspectives to find solutions? We will discuss how we can work better, smarter, and faster together. We will also look at climate and security and the need for global agreements.
In Day 3 we look at the areas where progress is starting to be made and what that takes. Participants include leaders in industry but also youth and civil society. The Forum will be structured to allow all present to constructively challenge and find ways of supporting those speaking. Another important part of the Forum is the side-meetings the delegates and speakers are having to create solutions and business opportunities.
