The global pursuit of net zero is positioning Newfoundland and Labrador to be a significant contributor to emissions reductions around the world.

Join us on October 20, 2022 to hear about the latest developments for Newfoundland and Labrador related to renewable energy, hydrogen, mining, waste management, and emissions reductions in the offshore.

This is the best opportunity of the year to network with clean technology and environmental services stakeholders in industry, government, and academia.

Conference Agenda

The econext 2022 conference will feature panel discussions with decision-makers and industry leaders on the following topics as they relate specifically to Newfoundland and Labrador (NL):

An Update on NL’s Renewable Energy Future

In December of 2021, the Government of NL released its renewable energy plan. In this session hear from key decision makers on the progress that has been achieved since December – and what the next steps are in helping NL reach its renewable energy potential.

Green Hydrogen and NL’s Opportunity

NL has the potential to become a first-mover and global leader in the production of green hydrogen on a substantial scale. In this session, hear from a panel of prospective developers on what their plans are for the production and export of green hydrogen from NL.

The Role of NL’s Mining Sector in the Global Energy Transition

A global energy transition will demand the production of more raw materials for wind turbines, batteries, and other clean energy technologies. NL is home to many of these metals, and thus presents an opportunity for economic growth for the province. This session asks the question: how do we balance future industrial development with the pursuit of net zero?

Progress in Waste Management in NL

NL faces significant challenges in the management of its waste – the primary obstacle being economies of scale. In this session, hear about the progress has been achieved in the province through 2022 in exploring new innovative approaches to dealing with waste streams.

Charting a Net Zero Future for NL’s Offshore

In this session led by The Net Zero Project, you will hear about the results of work undertaken through 2021-2022 to outline net zero pathways for NL’s offshore industry – and what the best bets are for NL in terms of cleantech investment and adoption.

More information on the econext 2022 conference agenda is coming soon.
