Climate change, decommissioning, renewable energy uptake, digitalization – the energy industry is clearly transforming. Ambitious goals are set, milestones are being met, roadmaps for further action are being developed. But what do all these high level developments really mean for your business, and for you?
Community Square on the Offshore Energy exhibition floor – this year at the front of Hall 2 – will offer an exciting free to attend program of ON AIR talk-shows and Knowledge Café meetings on industry transformation. A wide range of stakeholders of E&P companies and utilities, supply chain companies, NGOs, academia and government will share and discuss new ideas and solutions on energy transition, the future of the North Sea and new forms of collaboration transforming our industry and our economy.

10.30 - 13.00 Deep dive into digitalization, Partner: DNV GL
Digitalization is a must. At company level. At industry level. At the level of the global economy. That is why Offshore Energy and DNV GL have teamed up to offer you a deep dive into digitalization. Come to Community Square for a 2,5 hour program that is designed to show how a solid digitalization strategy can maximize benefits and minimize risks for you and your company.
Harnessing data, data management and creating value from data will be part of the program. But the real challenges of digitalization are non-technical and these will be explored and discussed as well: how to get people, work processes and culture to catch up with technological possibilities?
We kick off with an interview with Rob van der Spek, Director of Knowledge Management, DNV GL Oil & Gas and continue with an interactive audience discussion. The "On Air" talk-show which will also be livestreamed at OffshoreEnergyToday.com starts at 12.30 hrs and features the following guests:
• Barthold Schroot, Program Lead Advice and Innovation, EBN
• Thomas Friedman, Siemens AG
• Rob van der Spek, DNV GL
• Joost Lasschuit, Managing Director, Rolloos
14.00 - 16.30 Capitalizing on decarbonization, Partner: Transitie Coalitie
Meeting the Paris climate targets requires billions in investments. But the need to decarbonize our economy can also lead to commercial opportunities. Almost two years after the Paris climate agreement we're taking stock of international and national targets – on CO2 emission reductions, the share of renewable energy and energy efficiency – and especially where we are in meeting those targets. Organized in close cooperation with the "Transitie Coalitie" consisting of 65 companies based in the Netherlands, Community Square will share successful experiences in capitalizing on decarbonization.
This 2,5 hour program organized with other members of the Transitie Coalitie, will consist of welcoming pitches, interactive discussion on commercially successful decarbonization strategies and on "ON AIR" talk-show from 16.00 to 16.30 hrs which will be livestreamed on OffshoreEnergyToday.com.
