Description

Bringing Albertans together to lead the energy evolution.

The Alberta Climate Summit brings 500+ thought leaders from industry, government, environmental NGOs, and Indigenous and rural communities together to learn about global trends with implications in Alberta, hear diverse local success stories and explore the potential in Alberta’s energy evolution. The full-day event showcases a range of perspectives, opportunities for Alberta, informs and connects decision makers, and inspires participants to play an active role in the province’s energy future.




Topics

The one-day symposium begins with international perspectives and local leaders, followed by a variety of panel discussions, lectures and breakout sessions throughout the day.

  • The Future of Natural Gas in a Decarbonizing World
    A debate on the role of natural gas in the evolution of our energy systems given our global commitments under the Paris Agreement. Panelists will discuss if natural gas is a viable transition fuel or if its use is perpetuating a problem. Can we improve the environmental profile of natural gas or do we need to find cleaner solutions?
  • Opportunities in Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage
    By 2050, the world will need to capture, sequester or find productive uses for 5-10 Gt per year of CO2, an industry the size of the global petroleum sector today. Alberta and Canada are at the forefront of technology development in this area. Experts in the field discuss how carbon dioxide emissions from large emitters are captured and used to produce new products and market opportunites in Canada and beyond.
  • Experiential Energy Transition
    Experience firsthand how an energy system evolves in this hands-on, fast-paced and fun exercise – don’t plan on sitting through this!
