Panel discussion outlines the balance between energy independence and renewable energy goals

Vysus Group, in collaboration with the Energy Industries Council (EIC), welcomed leading figures from across the UK’s energy industry for a panel discussion on the evolving complexities of the world energy matrix this week.

Entitled ‘Navigating through the energy trilemma in uncertain times’, the discussion addressed the barriers the UK faces in meeting commitments set at last year’s COP26 conference, the role of hydrogen in the energy transition, and how hydrocarbons can be sustainably reduced in the coming years.

Hosting the four-strong panel was Vysus Group CEO David Clark, alongside representatives from the North Sea Transition Authority, Energy Transition Zone Ltd, and Floatation Energy plc. Neil Golding, Director of Market Intelligence with the EIC, moderated the session.

David Clark commented: “It was great to welcome delegates, colleagues, and new connections to engage in a frank conversation about the energy transition’s challenges and what the global community needs to do to address the 'energy trilemma’ of affordability, sustainability and availability.

"Ultimately, from a UK perspective, there are several areas that need to align. This includes regulatory bodies which now need to operate in a more integrated manner and building capacity and capability within the supply chain, to meet the significant upscaling required for new renewables developments and for decarbonisation of existing infrastructure. It is a complex and challenging picture but there was a good alignment on some of the key criteria and critical first steps identified and discussed in the session.

“I would like to thank the EIC for supporting us in facilitating this discussion and to all the attendees who contributed for their input. Sharing ideas and knowledge is the only way we will successfully navigate these turbulent times.”

Vysus Group launched its own sustainability campaign, Planit22, at the beginning of the year, aiming to educate internal and external stakeholders on their role in addressing the energy challenges in their own day-to-day operations.
