The Latin America & Caribbean Hydrogen & CCUS Decarbonisation Summit will focus on how to determine strategies for greater decarbonisation of the energy intensive and enhance collaboration and innovation between 300+ government officials, regulators, key industry stake holders, leading academia and service companies.

Agenda

“ The Latin America & Caribbean countries are still some of the largest oil and gas producers globally but with the current COVID -19 pandemic we have seen the demand for oil and gas drop dramatically and fall to the lowest in the last decade. Now with the price of renewable projects competing with the price of oil and gas operations, many countries are now looking at how a greener economy can help countries recover from the pandemic, whilst reducing their carbon footprint. ”

The Latin America & Caribbean Hydrogen & CCUS Decarbonisation Summit, will be looking at how green hydrogen, carbon capture storage and carbon capture utilisation storage can help decarbonise the energy intensive sectors in the Latin America region. This includes oil, gas, mining, agriculture and cement amongst other sectors.

The Latin America & Caribbean Hydrogen & CCUS Decarbonisation Summit will focus on how to determine strategies for greater decarbonisation of the energy intensive and enhance collaboration and innovation between 300+ government officials, regulators, key industry stake holders, leading academia and service companies.

Sessions One and Two

With Latin America having the opportunities to decarbonise its oil and gas sector via carbon captures storage technologies and the with the abundance of renewable sources available to produce green hydrogen via offshore & onshore wind, solar and tidal. This session will review energy transition polices of the leading LATAC countries.

Schedule:

  • 9:25 Chair Opening Address
  • 9:30 Juan Carlos Jobet Minister of Energy Chile
  • 9:50 Diego Mesa, Minister of Mines & Energy Colombia
  • 10:10 Dario Martinez Minister for Energy Argentina
  • 10:30 Main Sponsor
  • 10:50 Q&A
  • 11:00 Coffee & Networking Break

Latin America & the Caribbean incorporate a very diverse energy mix with oil and gas being one of the main energy sources for the continent and the need for countries to lower its CO2 emissions to meet the Paris Climate Change agreement. This session will look at the current energy mix across each country and look at hydrogen and carbon capture storage can be implemented in their decarbonisation plans.

Schedule:

  • 11:45 Case Study
  • 12:10 Energy Mix Panel Discussion

    Rebecca Gaghen, Head of Division Latin America, International Energy Agency
  • 12:45 Lunch & Networking Break

Session Three

Latin America has the biggest coastlines globally and numerous active ports and a growing interest in the renewables sector in Latin America. This session will review the opportunities to produce green hydrogen via onshore & offshore wind, solar and tidal. You will hear from international global case studies that are currently active globally to understand how similar projects can be implemented in the region.

  • 17:00 Evening Network reception

Sessions One and Two

The application and incorporation of carbon capture, utilisation and storage is key to the successful development of a hydrogen economy and as energy transition takes place across the Latin America region carbon capture technologies can develop a path to blue hydrogen production. This session will look at different CCS projects across the Latin America and successful international case studies with many opportunities available with all oil and gas majors now committing to hit net zero by 2050.

Schedule:

  • 9:25 Chairs Opening Address

  • 12:05 Case Study
  • 12:25 Viviana Coelho, Corporate Emissions & Climate Change Manager Petrobras
  • 12:45 Q&A
  • 12:55 Lunch & Networking Break

There is an ever-changing landscape of energy demand and energy needs and in some parts of Latin America there is very limited or no accessibility to energy. This session will look at how different countries can work together to provide sustainable energy across the region and different energy storage technologies and options that are available.

Schedule:

  • 13:55 Chairs Opening Address
  • 14:20 Case StudyEnergy Storage Panel Discussion

  • 15:25 Coffee & Networking Break

Session Three

With sustainable and environmentally friendly projects taking the forefront for investors within energy projects offshore wind, CCUS and Hydrogen will provide a global economic opportunity for the Energy sector and holds great potential for both continued developments. This session will consider investment potential & trends, opportunities for Latin America to create a sustainable market, funding opportunities, public & private partnerships, investing in R&D, and funding initiatives. Commercial barriers to development will also be addressed, including investment risks, considerable capital requirements, and challenging route-to-market in Latin America.
