Drivers & Implications of the Energy Transition

Drivers & Implications of the Energy Transition

July 20, 2022 | Online :: Central Time

“The session was extremely valuable; the speaker did a very good job keeping the attendees engaged for the entire session and covered the most relevant information related to the topic.” – Atelier Ten

“Excellent overview of the current state of the energy sector and the complex factors driving its evolution. Richard made the information really accessible, with great explanations and insights. The best training I’ve taken in a long time.” – Department of Energy

“It’s clear that Richard is not only knowledgeable but also passionate about the topic. His enthusiasm and ability to dive into details were really engaging.” – Department of Energy

This fundamentals-level program will review all aspects of the accelerating energy transition to dramatically reduce global carbon emissions, and how this transition is likely to affect all of those currently active in the energy industry — no matter what subsector (electricity, oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables), customer segment (wholesale, commercial, industrial, residential, transportation), or part of the value chain (production, delivery, consumption) it is of relevance to you.

The goal is for attendees to leave the course with a holistic understanding of what’s changing and why, as well as the business implications of technology innovation, emerging regulations, and evolving customer wants and needs. The program will kick off with the drivers of the energy transition, and then dive deeper into the key dimensions of change (e.g., digital renewable grid, transportation electrification, pressures on fossil fuels) and enabling technologies, including electric vehicles, carbon capture, and hydrogen. With this context, the course will conclude by exploring the commercial opportunities and financial risks posed by the transition, to facilitate consideration of the potential professional implications for each attendee.

Learning Outcomes

  • Grasp the drivers of the energy transition and the primary dimensions of change
  • Discuss the economics and market prospects for key enabling technologies (i.e., EVs, battery storage, DERs, etc.)
  • Appreciate the challenges and obstacles of the energy transition, such as regulatory/legislative barriers, the interests of incumbents, customer inertia, and economic tradeoffs
  • Consider the emerging opportunities for investment, new business growth, and professional advancement stemming from the energy transition

Drivers of the Energy Transition

  • What is the energy transition?
  • What is causing the energy transition to occur?
  • What will be some of the main consequences of the transition on the global energy sector?

Evolution of the Transition

  • What are some of the more likely ways in which the energy transition will unfold over the next 10 years?
    • How will the electricity generation mix shift away from fossil fuels to renewables?
    • How will adoption of electric vehicles add to the challenges facing the electricity industry?
    • How will energy storage and grid upgrades help address the challenges posed by increasing renewables and EV penetration?
  • What are some possible pathways for the energy transition beyond the next 10 years?
    • How might emerging technologies such as carbon capture/storage and advanced nuclear play a role?
    • What might decentralized grid operations based heavily on distributed energy resources look like?
    • What are the prospects for low/zero-carbon fuels such as advanced biofuels and hydrogen?

Factors Influencing the Transition

  • How will key policy issues enabling the energy transition be resolved?
    • How will carbon dioxide emissions be priced?
    • What will happen to current subsidies that are provided across the energy sector?
    • How will wholesale energy markets be structured?
    • What retail electricity regulation innovations be adopted?
  • What can be done to attract more capital to finance the transition?
  • How can capital investment in new energy infrastructure be doubled or tripled?
  • What can be done to fund more innovation and deployment of new technologies that can ease the transition?
