ADIPEC 2022 strategic conference program launched

ADIPEC, the world’s largest energy industry conference and exhibition, has announced its 2022 conference agenda, reinforcing its position as the leading global forum for advancing a pragmatic and progressive energy transition.

ADIPEC 2022 will showcase industry action towards net-zero commitments and facilitate synergies between global policymakers and decision-makers, energy and business leaders, and innovators to support the development of a sustainable, affordable, and secure energy system. The conference will be a platform to share insights on the latest global issues affecting energy markets, including geopolitical shifts, the evolving global economy, energy supply challenges, and next-generation energy solutions.

The event which takes place the week before COP27 in Egypt leverages the UAE’s unique position and status as a global hub for innovation to act as a gateway to new regions, technologies and solutions, and new business opportunities and ideas.

Tayba Al Hashemi, CEO of ADNOC Sour Gas and Chair of ADIPEC 2022 said: “ADIPEC is helping advance a pragmatic and progressive global energy transition. It plays a powerful role in supporting the industry as they tackle the dual missions of delivering the world’s energy needs of today while investing in the energy systems of the future. The 2022 agenda reflects the realities of the changing global energy and geopolitical landscapes, with the energy trilemma of balancing cost, sustainability, and security in sharp focus for populations and energy producers around the world.

“When the global industry gathers in Abu Dhabi for ADIPEC 2022, it will be just one week before COP27 in Egypt and one year before COP28 takes place in Abu Dhabi. ADIPEC will provide an important platform for the industry to demonstrate climate action, investment and innovation helping accelerate the transition and deliver decarbonization. With input from global industry leaders and policymakers, leading innovators, and future talent, ADIPEC 2022 will continue to spark ingenuity and facilitate cooperation to help the industry deliver more energy, with fewer emissions.”

This year, ADIPEC’s conference program will focus on five strategic themes:

  1. The long-term impact of geopolitics on the global economy and energy industry
  2. The road to COP27 and COP28
  3. An industry transition: adapting to the new fundamentals of supply, low carbon, and new energy solutions
  4. Innovation and the energy transition: pioneering a new era of technology development
  5. The new management agenda: future workforce and the leaders of tomorrow

Christopher Hudson, President of dmg events, organizers of ADIPEC 2022 added: “To address ongoing structural shifts, industry challenges, and market disruptions, energy companies have no choice but to reinvent themselves. ADIPEC 2022 will provide a vital platform for the industry to share critical insights, exchange knowledge, and showcase action, as they transform in response to the profound changes taking place within the global energy system. ADIPEC 2022 will see a greater diversity of attendees than ever before. Their fresh perspective and insights will inspire the creative and critical thinking required to identify and implement solutions to the complex challenges we face today.”
