Main session

When: Thursday, 3 October 2019, 9:00 - 10:30
Where: Ballroom I-III (400 participants)

Session description

Mainstreaming PPAs will be central to industry’s contribution to a climate neutral European economy. The ambition of the RE-Source Platform is to move from 100s to 100,000s of consumers sourcing renewable energy. Marco Mensink, Director General of CEFIC, will discuss the general framework conditions required for the successful transition of heavy industries towards a climate neutral and circular economy in dialogue with Statkraft’s Executive Vice President Hallvard Granheim.

Following this, the session will focus on highlighting concrete examples and best practices. From large energy intensive sectors to SMEs: the energy transition requires everyone to be on board. So far small and medium sized companies signing PPAs have been largely outside of the spotlight. Successful practices must be shared in order to have more impact. This session will focus on the following questions:
