The role of energy technologies


As part of its Sustainable Future theme to help build momentum ahead of COP26, IOM3 is hosting a week of virtual events across 6-10 September. This week will showcase the vital role of professionals in materials, minerals and mining in the transition to a low carbon, resource efficient society.

The fourth day of the series will focus on the energy materials/processing industries and how along with facilitating the energy transition they can/will play a crucial role in decarbonization and the route to net-zero.

The day will concentrate on the different energy materials, the drive towards the energy transition (away from fossil fuel) and what companies are doing to reduce the carbon footprints of what are vitally important products to the economy.

Hear from a range of industrial, academic and policy experts as they explore the role of energy materials and the path towards the energy transition and how critical these industries are as vital parts of the overall strategy towards a net zero future. This session will look in more detail at:

  • complementary low carbon technologies related to the manufacture and  use of energy materials
  • understanding of the role of energy materials in the drive towards low carbon technologies.
  • an opportunity to discuss with industry and research leaders the challenges in bringing these new technologies to market.
