Polish LNG Conference, 14-15 November 2018, Warsaw, Poland
Last year’s edition was also the first. This year we’re returning with an even more interesting programme, a broad range of expert speakers and the trademark of our events – a curious and engaged audience.
Delving deep into the matter
The first day will start with a series of keynote speeches, setting the ground for later discussions. We’ve invited the representatives of the Directorate-General for Energy at the European Commission to explain LNG’s importance of their upcoming plans for the development of the transport sector. The topic will be Skangas, one of the event sponsors, talking about the main drivers for the development of the LNG market in Europe.
We recognize the increased impact that customers have on the shipper’s choice to switch to LNG and other alternative fuels. Representatives from Amazon and DHL have been invited to shed more light on the influence the customer has and what challenges posed by such a decision.
Polskie LNG will be with us on that day to present Poland’s role as the gateway to the CEE LNG market. We’ve asked Wärtsilä and Chart Industries, who’re also among the conference’s sponsors, to explore the parallels between LNG tech for marine and land industries and how intermodal LNG supply can disrupt the traditional energy supply options, respectively.
LNG in transport
The second day of the event will open up with an LNG market forecast and analysis of the influence of global trends on the situation in Europe, presented by representatives of Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE). It will get a little bit more specific after that, with the Natural & Bio Gas Vehicle Association (NGVA) presenting their natural gas HDV outlook for 2030, along with some policy recommendations.
In preparation for a dedicated look at the usage of LNG in the transport sector, a joint effort by ASE, Emerson, and Remontowa LNG Systems will explore the impact of technological advancement on the LNG industry and share with us their predictions for the upcoming disruptors.
As already mentioned, LNG in transport will be a major topic for the conference. Speakers from Shell, IVECO, Volvo and Nauticor will discuss the profitability of LNG versus other alternative fuels, whether it is the most environmentally friendly solution for heavy and long-haul trucks and the hurdles that need to be overcome before global implementation can become a reality.
The event will wrap up with a discussion panel, hosted by DNV GL, during which we will try to identify how stakeholders from different industries can work together in order to promote LNG development in Europe. The panel will feature representatives from BP and LIQUIND and various other companies, along some of the already mentioned speakers.
