How will Covid-19 affect the energy sector? Find out on May 27 in the German-Norwegian Energy Dialogue 2020, which focuses on the sector’s future. The five-part webinar series is a collaboration with the German-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce.
Norway and Germany’s energy sectors are closely interlinked and face many of the same challenges on the path to decarbonise by 2050. As a result, deeper cooperation can benefit both and this is the rationale for the German-Norwegian Energy Dialogue 2020.
The radical changes brought about by the current Covid-19 pandemic will have a dramatic impact on the energy sector. Governments have to focus on the immediate economic consequences of the crisis without losing sight of their long-term climate objectives. If intelligently crafted, stimulus and recovery packages offer an opportunity to prioritise forward-looking sectors and ideas.
The webinar series, which spans from May until the end of August, looks at how Norway and Germany can meet both national and EU climate commitments by strengthening bilateral energy cooperation in politics, business and research.
The first topic of the German-Norwegian Energy Dialogue 2020 is the impact of Covid-19 on the power sector. THEMA’s CEO, Dr. Arndt von Schemde, is the keynote speaker.
Subsequent sessions will focus on the European Green Deal and the Covid-19 recovery plan, achieving net-zero emissions in European industry by 2050, and the role of CCS in reaching net zero. The closing webinar will discuss business opportunities for German and Norwegian stakeholders in the offshore wind industry. All webinars, except the first, will be moderated by Julian Hentschel, Manager at THEMA.
