THE FUTURE OF THE ENERGY SUPPLY CHAIN

The shift towards renewable energy has started and is accelerating fast around the globe. It has significant implications for logistics and the supply chain.

Now’s the ideal time to talk about logistics and the shift towards renewable energy. The EU is planning a massive increase in green energy, aiming by 2030 for an energy mix that’s 45% renewables with 13% lower consumption. There’s no doubt that addressing logistics challenges will be critical to the success of the net-zero transition. 

The one-day in-person conference provided a platform to engage, exchange, and learn from each other. The conference explored how logistics is now vitally important to business viability and profitability in the transitioning energy sector, focusing on five key areas:

  • Finding end-to-end perspectives that address the whole supply chain and the full energy infrastructure lifecycle
  • Using smart digital platforms and tools to improve energy supply chain visibility and digitalization
  • Developing sustainable logistics solutions and using key emerging technologies

Change is occurring at an unprecedented pace. So now is the right time to learn about emerging trends, share best practices, and network with your peers within the energy industry.
