Speakers include key project decision-makers and government officials travelling from across the globe to present their supply chain needs at the flagship event.

Aberdeen, 14 June 2022 – The Energy Exports Conference 2022 (#EEC2022) kicked off in Aberdeen today, bringing in-depth discussions around global export opportunities for the energy industry, with a heavy focus on clean energy.

The flagship event is hosted by the EIC (Energy Industries Council), one of the world’s leading energy associations, and a host of strategic and organising partners. Speakers and delegates are coming to Aberdeen from multiple African states, Azerbaijan, India, German, Malaysia, Norway and the United States, among others.

More than 800 participants, including 70 speakers, will discuss challenges and opportunities experienced by the energy industry as the energy trilemma - transition, security, and affordability - tests strategic minds. #EEC2022 is held in person for the first time since the start of the pandemic and many networking opportunities will be available to participants.

The two-day event will also host an exhibition showcasing the UK’s supply chain capabilities alongside global market intelligence insights and one-to-one meetings with key project decision-makers, internationalisation experts and government officials.

On day one, an African high-level delegation Panel with officials from Cameron, Libya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe will talk about how Africa’s massive natural renewable energy resources that have so far been scarcely tapped could benefit from the deployment of increasingly cheaper renewable energy technologies.

EIC’s Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Broadley, will discuss with Sir Ian Wood, Chairman of the Energy Transition Zone, the future of the energy industry in the North Sea and Scotland’s role as a global energy leader.
