About the seminar
Shell’s latest Scenario, called Sky, meets the objectives of the Paris agreement whilst also providing access to energy to the billions of people on the planet who do not currently have it. It illustrates a technologically, industrially and economically possible route forward which is heavily dependent on renewables but also sees an ongoing role for fossil fuels, even in a net zero world. This talk will outline the thinking behind the Sky Scenario, the role envisaged for both renewables and fossil fuels in the energy transition, and how scenarios thinking feeds into Shell’s strategy and business plans.
The presentation will promptly start at 5:30pm and will be followed by drinks and nibbles.
We expect this event to be extremely popular, and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. We will release further tickets to the waiting list as they become available. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
