ONS 2022: 29 August – 1 September

Coming to ONS 2022!

Net Zero Markets

Net Zero Markets is our new venue for low-carbon and renewable energy.

Topics are ccs, hydrogen, offshore wind, solar energy and battery/energy storage. Listen to industry leaders, innovators and exciting companies – participate in the
Net Zero Markets venue at ONS 2022!


In 2022 we shake things up by growing bigger and changing location! This years ONS Young will be in the “doughnut-ring” at DNB-arena, with more activities, speakers and fun than ever before.

At ONS Young we want to promote the young and give them the opportunity to network with the industry and also promote themselves as future leaders of the industry.

Scale-Ups arena

Welcome to the arena for up-and-coming businesses and companies wanting to connect and cooperate with the broader energy industry! 

Apply for a stand before 15 June to get unique and direct access to the hundreds of companies coming to ONS 2022.

Opening Session: Trust

The world is facing shortage of energy as the transition to sustainability and net zero is starting to get traction. In contrast to general wishes and political aspirations, the consumption of oil, gas and coal is still growing, while unrest also excludes more energy from the market. The global economy represents 80 per cent of global energy consumption, and the emissions are on track to a 3.5 degrees scenario.

To pass the tipping point and pick up pace in the energy transition, it is up to our industry to design, build and realize security of supply and a sustainable energy future. The gap between aspirations and reality must be solved.

Across countries, industries, traditions and culture, we need trust and a common ground to push the world forward. To build peace and answer the big questions of our time we need ambitions, faith and capability. From international diplomacy. From investors. From the young generations.

Leila Benali, Minister of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development of Marocco

A just transition?

The climate crisis is the biggest threat humanity has ever faced. A safe and sustainable future is depending on making the leap from fossil fuels, a just transition which leaves no one behind. Solidarity with the frontline communities impacted by the climate crisis, means protecting those who will suffer the most from the climate crisis and the necessary transition.

A just transition aims to improve the overall quality of life by ensuring more equal societies, cleaner air, healthier ecosystems, greater energy security and a more innovative economy. How do we secure, not only a sustainable future, but at the same time – a just transition?

Co-existence in the energy market​

New energy security challenges, bold climate ambitions and rapid global movements in the energy systems puts forward new complex market challenges. The price of oil, gas and electricity has been volatile and shown weaknesses in the global market energy system, dependent on a predictable world order as well as seasonal weather in a time of climate change.​

Energy security and transitioning towards net zero requires oil and gas, in parallel with de-carbonization and renewables gradually taking larger market shares. How will these very different industries develop and co-exist in different markets? How can they share synergies in infrastructure, competence and consumer knowledge?

The North Sea – the new frontier of energy transition?​

The Norwegian continental shelf is in transition from being an O&G province to becoming a broader energy province. The North Sea has an unredeemed potential and could be central in the industry change ahead. How should Norway, UK and the North Sea EU-countries identify and develop infrastructure and synergies based on conventional energy in co-existence with wind, hydrogen and CCS infrastructures in the province?

How will the new Norwegian government adapt new oil and gas exploration and production, as the low carbon agenda gathers pace, and the offshore wind and hybrid projects are introduced? ​

Developing a world leading offshore energy infrastructure in the North Sea could bring benefits to the entire region, and Europe as a whole, in terms of sustainable development of energy and marine life. We ask, what is achievable and what´s not?

The energy security power contest

The world order has been challenged by new imperialism and reset alliances in the global power play. How will the global community re-establish and secure the energy supply for the future?​

How are the different markets positioning while the conflict in Ukraine unfolds, post-covid and with the push for energy transition? Will the choice need to be made between energy supply and security versus climate change and sustainability? ​

Is the developing world lagging behind or taking the smart route? What will the geopolitical repositioning look like ahead?

Trust in people and leadership

The energy transition is challenging everyone and everything to change. To make the shift both consumers and industry must accelerate the shift at an un-precedented pace. In a world of increased polarization, how can trust and leadership build the industry culture and the global cooperation needed? In this session we showcase knowledge and leadership experience built on trust as the key factor.

Deep electrification

Targets for sustainability and Net Zero can only be realized with deep electrification. Electrifying our energy system with ex. transportation, heating and cooling will provide greater energy efficiency and a substantial loss of emissions. Today, electricity accounts for only 20 per cent of the energy demand and is often powered by fossil fuels. Battery, solar, wind and hydrogen projects are building pace, but are depending on fluctuating cycles, weather and digital security. ​

Financing the energy transition

What are the roles of the traditional oil and gas companies in the energy transition? How are resources and capital structured and allocated between historical core business and the new low-carbon and renewable growth legs? How will different strategies shape these companies for the next 10 years?

What is the role of private capital – institutional investors and private equity funds – in building an energy system adapted for net zero? How are banks and the public capital markets viewing the funding of oil and gas vs. energy transition strategies, new energy and clean tech companies?

Searching for leapfrog

The energy industry has been producing oil and gas in the same system for decades, while innovation and technologies have disrupted industries and transformed the global economy. ​

What are the new potentials in the energy system? ​

Which technologies could disrupt the way we produce, distribute and/or consume energy? ​

What breakthrough technologies have the potential to leap us to a sustainable future

Game changing corporate strategies

The energy transition and new technologies are transforming the global economy. Industries and corporations are adapting to a more complex set of challenges and opportunities by unconventional strategies containing more uncertainty.

How is the energy sector working to meet the changes in customer demands? What are the altitudes on the map of the new energy system and what changes are required in the supply chain?

The Net Zero

At the point when we`re looking back from a net zero world, how do we identify the main turnkeys that got us on the right track?

When did the energy transformation pass the tipping point from oil & gas to renewables?

What commitment and players were the main drivers?

Discover the potential of the Pomeranian region

Discussion panels about Polish-Norwegian offshore cooperation.

Poland, in particular the Pomeranian region (Gdansk area), is a location that truly stands out. Many years of shipbuilding experience, combined with excellent port infrastructure and developing modern industries offer optimal conditions for business growth.

Although Pomeranian companies have already been operating in the wind offshore supply chain, the booming industry in the Baltic Sea will additionally boost business opportunities both in terms of locating new projects and establishing collaboration between local and foreign suppliers..

The business meeting organized by Invest in Pomerania and Polish Investment and Trade Agency will feature two panel discussions with the participation of leading Polish and Norwegian companies and entities in the offshore industry:.

The event is organized as part of the Offshore Northern Seas conference (ONS) during the Net Zero Markets arena..
