OGV Community - Energy Transition
OGV Energy welcomes you to our OGV Community event for May, where we will be looking at where the Energy sector is placed in the much talked about "Energy transition", and how long we have to go in our journey towards a more sustainable, safer and technologically enabled industry.The Energy Transition means a gradual move away from a reliance on fossil-fuels, towards a more diversified energy mix, in which renewable and alternative energy plays a far bigger role. This change signifies opportunities that can be both environmentally sound and commercially advantageous if the energy supply chain can harness the correct resources to deliver real value to their clients.Hydrogen and CCUS, offshore wind, geothermal, solar and hydro-power will all play a part in the energy mix of tomorrow. Join us to hear from our panel of experts on how the supply chain of the energy sector can help facilitate the journey.ChairWestwood Global Energy Group - David Linden, Head Of Energy TransitionPanellistsOffshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult - Hugh Riddell, Regional Partnership ManagerRenewables UK - Barney Wharton - Director, Future Electricity SystemsWorley, Aberdeen Energy - Graeme Wilson, Business Development DirectorGlobal Wind Energy Council (GWEC) - Rebecca Williams, Director of COP26OGUK - Will Webster, Lead Energy Policy ManagerOpportunity North East (ONE) - Andy Rodden, Energy Transition Programme Director (Offshore Renewables)

OGV Community - Marine & Shipping
OGV Energy welcomes you to our OGV Community event for April, where we will be looking at the factors affecting the global marine and shipping industry and the various options available to help it de-carbonise in the future. What fuels should the shipping sector explore? How is artificial intelligence and new technology re-shaping fuel consumption and navigation and how do we ensure vital skills are kept in the industry and passed on to future generations?It is clear that ambitious policies are needed to meet the objectives set by the International Maritime Organisation to reach carbon neutrality in the second half of the century. Reducing carbon intensity in the near term, for instance through energy efficiency measures and slow steaming, is clearly a big priority. Over the longer term, policies are required to promote the adoption of low- and zero-carbon fuels and technologies for oceangoing vessels.Chair IMarEst - John Butler, Elected Council memberPanellistsZero Emissions Ship Technology Association (ZESTAs) - Madadh MacLaine, Founder and Secretary-GeneralSeall - Barry Booth, CCOStena Drilling - Alan Crowley, Master Mariner/OIM, Stena DrillingHeerema Marine Contractors - Vincent Doedee, Sustainability DirectorTechnipFMC - Marit Mork, Manager, Innovation Projects, Deep Purple hos Librestream Technologies Inc. - Michael Murphy, Vice President of Emerging MarketsOGV Taproom Be Bold.
