Alternative fuels—any fuel that is not derived from conventional fossil fuels—will play a key role in the energy transition as more and more countries commit to decarbonisation and net-zero targets. Transition Economist, in association with professional services firm PwC, is pleased to present an exclusive roundtable exploring the role of alternative fuels and the pathways to commercial viability.
A significant investment in alternative fuels is needed to achieve the goals set out in the Paris Agreement, and this topic will undoubtedly play a part in discussions at this year’s Cop26 meeting in November.
Join our select panel for an in-depth discussion on topics including:
• What are the realistic alternative fuel options, and where can they best be applied?
• What fuel mixes and technologies will be most cost-effective for achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement?
• Financing the transition - key finance providers and how to scale the technologies needed
• International collaboration is key. What support is needed to achieve a cost-competitive hydrogen value chain?
This discussion is moderated by Will Jackson-Moore, Global Private Equity, Real Assets and Sovereign Funds Leader, PwC.
