'The Energy Mix: Driving Sustainability through Diversification’ will explore the transition to a sustainable and low carbon economy. Together the panel will represent the changing energy industry and touch on the drivers for this change, including policy, climate change, advances in technology, as well as impact on growth and/or divestment in new or traditional business activities, including technological diversification and development.

Secondly with respect to the sustainability of the north east, currently heavily focused on the oil & gas sector and what is required for Aberdeen to shift from the ‘Oil & Gas Capital of Europe’ to the ‘Energy Capital of Europe.
