A MAJOR energy summit planned for this autumn in Aberdeen has been welcomed by council leaders as recognition of the city’s pioneering work in combating climate change.
The Scottish Government and World Energy Council recently announced that P&J Live will host the Energy Trilemma Summit and 2022 Executive Assembly on 12th and 13thOctober.
The event will discuss “transformational solutions in turbulent times” and invited delegates include the World Energy Council’s leadership, industry experts from nearly 100 countries and ministers from the Scottish Government.
The Executive Assembly will take place on day 1, followed by a day of presentations by keynote speakers and discussion on day 2.
The objectives are to develop practical actions that can be taken to bring forward clean energy solutions in all global regions, with a particular focus on solutions that address issues of energy security, affordability, and sustainability, the three key pillars which define the energy trilemma.
Aberdeen City Council Co-leader Councillor Alex Nicoll said: “The decision to host the Energy Trilemma Summit highlights the city’s standing in the global community and we look forward to welcoming delegates to Aberdeen.”
“We live in a time when real action is needed to tackle the effects of a changing climate which increasingly affects our daily lives.”
“Cities are key to decarbonisation, and given our economy, cities like Aberdeen will have an even greater role in developing solutions. We are at the forefront of innovation in the energy industry as we respond to the challenges which makes Aberdeen an excellent fit to host this year’s summit.”
