Facing unprecedented demands to deliver wholesale decarbonisation of energy, the gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry is increasingly turning to advanced digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), big data and robotics to future proof businesses and ensure they thrive in the drive to net-zero energy.
At Gastech 2021, the world’s largest exhibition and conference supporting the gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry, industry professionals have been examining how the latest advances in digital technology can enhance daily business operations and provide the tools to deliver cleaner, affordable energy while balancing shareholder expectations with decarbonisation targets.
“To achieve our net-zero ambitions, we must deliver on our promise to decarbonise energy.,” began Lorenzo Simonelli, Chairman and CEO of energy technology company, Baker Hughes. “Technologies exist today to increase efficiencies, reduce emissions and capture carbon, as well as spur the hydrogen economy and adoption of new energies. As an industry, we must continue to collaborate and incentivise solutions prioritising emissions reduction over fuel sources, to ensure we can continue to lead in the energy transition.”
The role of advanced digital technologies in changing the daily operations of the gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry is one of six pillars of Gastech 2021’s conference programme. The conference has enabled the global gas, LNG, hydrogen and energy industry to safely reconnect face-to-face and engage with industry key challenges and opportunities, for the first time since the pandemic began.
