You are cordially invited to an event hosted by Aker Solutions in collaboration with the British Norwegian Chamber of Commerce: Norway and the UK: The future power region of Europe.

The event will be moderated by Stephen Bull, Chair of Renewable UK and include short presentations and a panel discussion with excellent speakers.
Key topics for discussion will include:
- Ongoing renewable energy and CCUS opportunities in the UK and Norway,
- Risk/reward collaboration models,
- Preparing for increased electricity demand and strengthening the grid,
- Leveraging competence from the oil & gas sector towards renewables,
- Building robust supply chains to meet energy needs.
