Parallel workshops on the topics are hosted by Business For Climate (Næring for Klima).
9.20-10.10: Energy stations – creating simultaneity – ( interactive session in Norwegian)
Road traffic is the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Oslo. Oslo has come a long way in electrifying road traffic, but other clean fuels are also needed to reduce emissions, especially for heavy vehicles. The Agency for Climate in the City of Oslo aims to establish energy stations within the city to supply clean fuels such as hydrogen and biogas. The entire value chain are brought together in letters of mutual intent, with actors varying from vehicle manufacturers, energy station players, owner of goods, transporters and public procurers.
The session is about how to create simultaneous action, where a number of actors depend on each other. The session is led by the City of Oslo, accompanied by actors who have signed the letter of mutual intent, among them Partifrakt and Uno-X. The session will be partly interactive, with discussion among the audience and the participants on stage.
10.10-11.15: Energy efficiency in existing buildings (interactive session in Norwegian)
Even better than clean energy is energy which is never consumed. New buildings are increasingly built with higher energy efficiency, some even producing more energy than they consume. But the new buildings are vastly outnumbered by the existing building stock, and the greatest potential lies in making these existing buildings more energy efficient. In this session, we will explore the why and the how to increase energy efficiency in existing buildings. This session is led by the City of Oslo, and will be partly case presentations and partly panel discussions with forward-thinking actors on the opportunities found in increasing energy efficiency in existing buildings.
11:15-12:00: Emission-free construction sites (interactive session in Norwegian)
Construction equipment do heavy work and are large CO2 emitters. Seven percent of greenhouse gas emissions in Oslo come from construction activities. Towards 2030 Oslo will build about 50 000 new dwellings and have several large infrastructure projects planned. Consequently, without new mitigation measures, emissions from the sector are projected to increase to 2030
Transitioning to zero-emission construction machinery is a way forward. But what energy infrastructure is needed to electrify construction sites?How can this be done?? Can local authorities’ demand for cleaner air and lower CO2 emissions make an impact? What is the role of public procurement? This session is led by the City of Oslo accompanied by Bellona, and partly interactive.
