We are pleased to open the registration to virtually attend the upcoming COP26 offsite workshop event entitled: “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle & Remove: Achieving a Net-Zero Emission World using the Circular Carbon Economy Approach.” The workshop is hosted by the King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center (KAPSARC) in collaboration with the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES) and the World Energy Council (WEC),and will be held on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, in Glasgow, UK. The scene-setting presentations and panel discussions will be live-streamed to the public on Zoom, but in-person participation at this event is by personal invitation only.
Building on the rapidly growing momentum around global and national net-zero emission targets, this workshop will highlight the role of the circular carbon economy framework in achieving these momentous goals and in addressing various gaps and challenges that still remain, and how we can overcome them. This workshop will offer a great line-up of speakers and panelists who will offer an interactive discussion around the following three key themes and sessions:
1. The global CCE Scenarios toward a Net-Zero Emission World session will introduce the concept of the Circular Carbon Economy and will shed light on alternative global and regional roadmaps and perspectives in the transition of the energy system toward a net-zero target.
2. The metrics for Circular Carbon Economy Transitions session will mark the launch of KAPSARC’s 2021 Circular Carbon Economy Index, share highlights from the recently released World Energy Council’s 2021 World Energy Trilemma Index, and zoom in on how such indices can measure countries’ policy performance and energy transition potential.
3. The key enablers of the CCE concept session will discuss how the CCE concept could be practically implemented; what technologies will be needed to successfully achieve the net-zero emission target with a specific focus on hydrogen, biogas and CCUS; what some of the potential barriers are that must be overcome in the coming decade(s); and the necessary technological, financial, governance, and/or political conditions to unpack their full potential.
