We have so much exciting news to announce over the next months in the lead up to APPEC so do register your interest now to ensure you’ll be among the first to know!

Here’s a recap of some of the key themes of 2021 summarized at APPEC last year:

The scale and challenge facing us as an industry has become clearer as we move on from adjusting to the COVID pandemic presented in 2020.

New systemic challenges include:

- Reacting to events like COVID, how do we plan for such disruptive events? 
- Energy transition launching into full swing 
    > What will the energy economy look like in terms of new fuels and new energy solutions?
    > What is the role for the current fuels which will be so important to meeting humanities needs and the needs of the economy for the next 20 years or so?
- The huge risk and opportunity for new fuels 
- Geopolitics – wildly different to what it was before the pandemic. China, Russia, the US – what could rear next?
- Supply chains: with the just-in-time economy and supply chains facing issues, how will the industry evolve?

Themes and topics of APPEC 2022 coming soon. Watch this space!
