Building the energy systems of the future requires collaboration across sectors and disciplines, and The Future of Energy is Green and Digital launches a new arena at the intersection of the energy transition and digital solutions. The conference is held at the University of Oslo, in the heart of Norway’s first innovation district Oslo Science City.
We invite leading representatives from academia, industry, start-ups, the public sector, and finance to join the voices shaping these discussions – in Oslo, Norway, Europe and beyond. We are proud to feature opening addresses by the Norwegian minister for climate and environment Andreas Bjelland Eriksen, alongside high-level political representation of the European Green Deal and internationally renowned expert keynotes, such as Colin McKerracher, Head of Advanced Transport, BloombergNEF, Adel El Gammal, Secretary General, European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) and Heidi Sørensen, Director, City of Oslo Climate Agency.
Day 1 develops our understanding of four key challenges for the green and digital energy transition - the solutions to which enable the energy systems of the future.
First: Accelerating a massive scale-up of renewable energy. Second: Storage capacity and flexibility to tackle more variable energy production. Third: The future power grid is increasingly complex, demanding balancing acts and optimization. Fourth: The future of energy must be built for the people to meet societal needs.
Day 2 is dedicated to learning from green and digital transitions in different settings - building our communities.
The first session focuses on cities as key to green and digital energy solutions. Session two discusses a future Ukrainian energy system - which will be rebuilt on green and digital solutions.
You will meet leading experts from industry, research institutes and academia, providing insight and charting pathways forward. National and international contributions cover policy aspects, industrial transformation, and transition governance, completing a solutions-oriented showcase across the innovation value chain - from research to knowledge in use.
Join us in the Oslo Science City Arena and help us shape the conversation. The Future of Energy is Green and Digital.
Full program to be announced soon.
