Following on from the inaugural Future of Gas event in Leeds, this Future of Gas II conference brings together a high calibre of speakers presenting their views on how decarbonisation can really happen in the UK and the importance of future of the gas system to achieve this. We will have representation from industry, academia, policy and technology covering the full spectrum of opportunities and challenges.
The recently issued IPCC special report "Global Warming of 1.5 degrees" calls the global community to arms to turn urgency into action in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. This urgency reinforces the importance of the projects underway in the UK to investigate decarbonising heat, and with this in mind, HSE is pleased to announce the second annual Future of Gas Event (Future of Gas II) as part of the Safety Excellence in Energy Series.
New projects will be discussed together with updates, new learning and developments from current projects that are looking at partial and full decarbonisation of the gas supply. In addition will be new insights from the transport sector and international views on the future of gas on a global level. We will also touch upon the role of CCUS as part of a future energy system.
