Energy Transition Week is a key meeting point to debate challenges and solutions for the transition to a future sustainable energy system.
Workshop | Time: 10:15 am - 3:45 pm | Web Meeting Organized by Johan Berg Pettersen, Kathrine Næss, Asgeir Thomasgard og Øystein Ihler
This workshop is by invitation only and will be in Norwegian.
I 2030 er Oslo kommune verdens første klimanøytrale storby som har gått foran i det grønne sirkulærøkonomiske skiftet. Vi er i 2020 under 8,6% sirkulær, og det er et gap mellom hvor storsamfunnet vil være om kun 10 år og hvor norsk prosessindustri er i dag.
Denne workshopen backcaster fra 2030 til 2020 og identifiserer hvilke tiltak som må gjennomføres for å lukke dette gapet.
Prosessindustrien skal bidra til økt norsk verdiskaping. Hvordan må den omstille seg for å møte markedenes krav om nullutslipp og ressurseffektivitet?
Stikkord for workshopen:
«En metode hvor du identifiserer ønsket fremtidig tilstand - en overbevisende, dristig visjon for en fremtid der et problem løses - og jobber bakover derfra for å bli enige om et sett på kort sikt, håndfaste handlinger som driver mot visjonen.»
Arrangementet organiseres i fellesskap av NTNU Energy Transition Week, Oslo kommune og Prosess 21s ekspertgruppe for sirkulær økonomi.
Prosess21 sin ekspertgruppe for sirkulærøkonomi skal evaluere mulighetene for ytterligere spesialisering og verdiskaping i bruk av ulike biprodukter og sidestrømmer, samt økt ressursutnyttelse av resirkulerte råstoffer og materialer generelt. Ekspertgruppen og sekretariat skal ta utgangspunkt i dagens status for industrien knyttet til sirkulærøkonomisk tenking og praksis, europeisk og norsk politikk, og Norsk Industris mulighetsstudie for sirkulær økonomi i prosessindustrien.
Workshop | Time: 09.45 - 14.30 | Web Meeting Organized by Pedro Crespo del Granado, Mark O'Malley, Henrik Madsen and Asgeir Tomasgard
How will a decarbonized energy system balance supply-demand operation to reach at least 60-70% of renewable energy sources (i.e., solar and wind) by 2050? Flexibility will be at the centre to integrate renewables, support efficient system operations, and ensure security of supply. However, incentivizing and raising flexibility touches upon multiple technological and structural challenges (e.g. market and regulatory). To this end, the objective of the workshop is to discuss:
How to characterize flexibility (and what services)? From demand-to- supply side options.
What market designs will provide the right investment signals to guarantee a business case (long term perspective) for flexibility providers (from aggregators to gas power plants)?
What new technological developments (e.g. electricity storage or hydrogen) will deliver short-term flexibility?
Which digitization tools or setups are needed for unlocking the flexibility needed for the low-carbon society? Are smart grids still a thing in providing meaningful flexibility?
Is the current regulatory framework setup (tariffs, energy taxes, sector coupling, etc.) incentivizing or blocking the use of flexibility?
Speakers and panel discussants: Confirmed international speakers will present and discuss up-to-date research and challenges on flexibility in integrated energy systems.
Workshop format: The workshop will be entirely online and follow webinar style format. The registered participants (by invitation only) will receive an invitation link the day prior to the workshop in order to login to the webinar telco tool.

10:55 - 11:05 Stretch your legs break
11:05 - 12:15
Part 2: Energy systems integration, key flexibility technologies and industry perspective
Chair: Henrik Madsen
- Presenters and panel discussion: Henrik Madsen (DTU), Vibeke Norstebo (SINTEF), Christian Skar (Powel), and Hannele Holttinen (IEA Wind/ Recognis)
12:15-13:00 Lunch break
Part 3: Market design, regulation and barriers. Chair: Mark O'Malley -Presenters and panel discussion: Charlie Smith (ESIG), Gerard Doorman (Stattnet), Mark O'Malley (NREL), Goran Strbac (Imperial) and Magnus Korpas (NTNU).
Conclusions and wrap up, Dr. Pedro Crespo del Granado
Workshop | Time: 9 am - 2 pm | Web Meeting Organized by Asgeir Tomasgaard and Per Ivar Karlstad
Workshop topics include:
This session investigates and discusses alternative pathways towards the zero emission society and the measures required to make the industry and waste sector active players in this context. Both benefits for society and added costs are discussed.
A number of options are relevant for decarbonizing mechanical work, low temperature heat, high temperature heat, industrial processes and more. This includes CCS, energy efficiency, electrification, fuel switching (such as biofuels and blue or green hydrogen) and new processes and materials. Compensatory measures like bioCCS and DACCS may also be considered as a part of the overall solution. A central component is sector coupling and the interfaces between the energy system and other sectors in order to exploit synergies and flexibility across the economy. Both timing, public acceptance and other technical and commercial challenges for the different options are relevant to discuss.
Barriers and needs
Central aspects in long-term strategies is to identify the barriers and gaps and measures to deal with them. Long-term research should be linked to short-term transition measures and the acceptability of such measures in the society. Today one of the central challenges is the adaptability of existing fossil-based business models when deep decarbonization strategies are expected to be developed. Such challenges are especially visible in respect to CCS when looking at how to share risk, cost and income. Climate and market risk will also affect these. The purpose is to identify measures and their timing.
The workshop: We would like to involve the participants to identify and discuss the central questions and view all participants as equal contributors for each session. This meeting employs a modified Chatham House Rule. Participants are free to use the information received during the meeting, but specific positions taken by individuals should not be attributed without expressed permission. However, formal presentations, the meeting agenda, and the meeting participation list will become part of the public meeting record unless participants request anonymity.
The Energy Transition 2020 will be organized as a series of webinars, as the conference planned for March was canceled. We are trying to keep as much of the original programme and speakers as possible and will update the website consecutively. A recordring of each webinar will be found on this page.
