    Speaker for following sessions
    • 16:15 - 16:45 Debate: The green transition and our shared responsibility – Part I
      In order to reach the Paris Agreement’s ambition of reducing the rise in the global average temperature to 1.5 degrees, the energy system must be changed significantly. However, all leading projections show that oil and, especially, gas will still be important parts of the European energy transition. The politicians from the Danish parliament will discuss what role the production of oil and gas from the Danish part of the North sea could have in the energy transition.
      16:45 - 17:10 Debate: The green transition and our shared responsibility – Part II
      In 2018, the Danish oil sector contributed over 8 billion DKK to the Danish treasury in taxes. Therefore, the Danish recovery of oil and gas from the North Sea is very beneficial for the Danish state. However, how does the industry see the future for oil and gas recovery in Denmark, and do the industry and politicians have a common understanding of the way forward? This will be discussed by a panel of leading politicians and industry leaders.
