Ian Cogswell contributes to Siemens Energy’s “Working Back from Net Zero” workshop and the 1st Edition of the Energy Knect Expert Insight Newsletter

The Energy Knect Newsletter was launched in October 2020, with Ian Cogswell providing thoughts on the risks on which lenders specifically focus when financing new oil & gas projects that are designed with the transition to net zero emissions in mind.  This followed on from his participation in Siemens Energy’s “Working Back from Net Zero” workshop, where some of the industry’s leading professionals joined together to brainstorm ideas of how they can collaborate through the energy transition journey.  The workshop concluded that the lack of a common understanding on the level of financial risk due to technology deployment is disabling the energy transition process. There is a need to enable investors to better value the  economic risk of technology deployment in project development and Ian will now work with the workshop participants on a  white paper addressing how technology risk can be mitigated, which will be shared with energy transition stakeholders.
