Energy Transition 2020: Webinar - Visions of the future

This webinar´s focus is the vision for the net zero emission society in 2050 and how to achieve this. We have invited speakers that can discuss this from both the Norwegian perspective, as a country rich on energy resources, but also from a global perspective.

The energy sector will play a central role in the transition with its links to transport, industry and the built environment. The question we ask is: how can we manage the transition fast enough, respecting environmental sustainability, social aspects like fairness and justice, and sustained welfare and economic growth? Is it just a vision or possible to achieve? Welcome to the fourth webinar in our Energy Transition 2020 webinar series.
