The future of energy downstream is all about innovation, resilience, and sustainability. As we strive towards a low-carbon, net-zero emissions future, we need to embrace new technologies and approaches that enable us to produce, transport, and use energy more efficiently and responsibly.
Green hydrogen and renewable energy are key enablers of downstream energy transformation, offering clean, emission-free fuel for a range of applications. Carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies are essential for decarbonizing the energy sector, and continuous innovation in this field can lead to more cost-effective and efficient systems.
We also need to embrace digital technologies like AI, IoT, and digital twins to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and create new opportunities in the industry. By collaborating across government, industry, and research institutes, we can accelerate the development and adoption of these technologies, and pave the way for a more sustainable and resilient energy future.
The journey towards a sustainable energy future will be challenging, but it is essential. By investing in innovation, resilience, and sustainability, we can create a brighter, cleaner, and more prosperous future for ourselves and for generations to come.
I would like to extend my best wishes for the seventh edition of the Global Refining and Petrochemical Congress. It offers an exceptional platform for knowledge exchange and promoting a better understanding of the industry's challenges, opportunities, and outlooks.S. Bharathan
