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

Sessions One and Two

Session I - Latin American Caribbean & International Policy

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 policies of the leading LATAC countries.

Schedule:

  • 9:25 Chair Opening Address

Session Three

Session III - Green Hydrogen Production Projects

Latin America has the biggest coastlines globally and numerous active ports and a growing interest in the renewables sector. 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.

Schedule:

  • 13:45 Chairs Opening Address
  • 13:50 YPF Case Study
