3rd ICSC Energy Transition Workshop

Practical routes to achieving net zero

A joint event between the ICSC and Eskom
in Cape Town, South Africa

24-25 April 2024

Following the great success of the 2023 Energy transition workshop in Cape Town, the ICSC, in collaboration with Eskom are delighted to announce that the event will be returning to the same stunning venue – Cape Town on 24 – 25 April 2024.

The energy transition is raising issues thick and fast the world over. One of the most pressing is to identify the most practical routes to achieve net zero – this is the focus of the ICSC workshop and makes attendance at this international event more important than ever. The event will improve your understanding of the policies being pursued by various countries to achieve net zero, the technologies that are being developed and deployed, and how they interact.

The 3rd energy transition workshop is a fantastic opportunity to discuss the energy transition with experts from all over the world, and to gain insights into what strategies and technologies are likely to work and the ones that may be less successful.

Topics that will be discussed include:
  • Developments in carbon capture, utilisation and storage
  • Emissions reduction from power plants
  • The role of variable renewable energy
  • How to maintain a stable electricity grid during the transition
  • How to improve the flexibility of power plants so they can cope with VRE
  • The potential to reduce emissions from hard to abate industries
  • The role of coal in a circular economy – for example as a viable source of rare earth elements, critical for the energy transition.

The International Centre for Sustainable Carbon (ICSC) is part of an International Energy Agency organised network of functionally and legally autonomous collaborative partnerships focused on a wide range of energy technologies known as Technology Collaboration Programmes (TCPs). We provide independent information and analysis on how biomass, coal and other carbon sources can become cleaner sources of energy, compatible with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our comprehensive work programme includes the preparation of well-regarded policy relevant study reports together with a worldwide dissemination and outreach programme.
