240 international energy experts from 14 countries are working to shape a world class programme for ONS 2022. The committees are representing a historically broad energy sector to reinforce ONS` ambition to play an active role in achieving a low carbon future.
– ONS has a long tradition in attracting key people from the energy industry to carve out the best possible programme. Almost 50% of the 11 committees for next year`s ONS represents the renewable energy, says Leif Johan Sevland, President and CEO of ONS Foundation.
There are 11 ONS committees. New committees this year is Offshore Wind, Energy Storage/ Battery, Solar Energy, CCS and Hydrogen. The other committees are Conference, Innovation jury, Communication, Technical, International Advisory Board and Energy Society.
An arena for the entire energy sector
ONS is one of the worlds’ most important meeting places for the energy industry. Since 2008, the ONS Foundation has developed and extended their renewable energy programme.
– ONS was an early mover in introducing renewables to the agenda. We’ve been around since the oil and gas adventures started in the early seventies. 50 years later, we’re embracing the energy transition in full. Oil and gas will be around for many decades to come and is still the backbone of our event. However, the representation from offshore wind, battery and storage, CCS, hydrogen and solar energy have never been bigger.
