This was our fourth ETIDEX. The event was a forum for the free exchange of ideas and insight, aimed at solving the problems and grasping the opportunities presented by the energy transition. The event focussed on key areas such as offshore wind and CCUS with high-profile speakers and panel discussions.

Session 1 – Offshore Wind

Offshore wind is an annual feature on the ETIDEX programme. This year we looked at developments over the past 12 months, such as the INTOG licensing awards, with some reflection on progress since ScotWind and a look ahead to what the future holds for Scotland and the UK. The session touched on key topics of debate such as supply chain, skills transfer and infrastructure support.

Session 2 – The Energy Transition Forum

This keynote session tackled a number of key questions: Is the energy transition moving fast enough to expedite the shift to net zero? In the context of the global race to net zero, and as world leaders meet in the UAE for COP28, can the UK still claim to be leading the way? Is enough being done from a policy perspective? Capital is flowing into renewable energy, but where can finance be directed more effectively to be a catalyst for rapid change? This latter theme was teased out further in a special workshop at the conference with a focus on 'Financing the energy transition.'
