Whether it’s recycling old turbine blades, repurposing 50 years of oil and gas skills, or the efforts of the supply chain to reduce their carbon output, the entire energy industry is focused on the green transition.
In the spring issue of Insight Energy, we dive deep into the details behind how the East of England’s energy sector is gearing up for this monumental task.
It’s obvious that the only way that net-zero targets can be achieved is by the whole energy industry – from those decommissioning oil and gas platforms to the educators training the future workforce – coming together.
Decom Week, which takes place from May 17-21, is a good place to start, and in this issue, Will Rowley, interim managing director at Decom North Sea, offers his insight into the vital role decommissioning plays in the energy transition.
It’s a similar story from Mike Tholen, sustainability director at OGUK, who takes us through the North Sea Transition Deal (NSTD) and how it will enable the oil and gas industry to work with the government to develop low-carbon solutions.
We’ve got a long way to go and a lot of cogs to line up, but the industry is certainly getting in gear for a green future.
