Webinar: Road to Carbon Neutrality: Renewable Energies and Energy Storage

  • This event has passed.
July 13, 2021 @ 12:00 am

Dear members,
Our next webinar is a joint effort with 3 BLCCJ member companies:

“Road to Carbon Neutrality: Renewable Energies and Energy Storage”
With presentations by TotalEnergies, Umicore and Solvay 


Japan has vowed to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. This requires investing in renewable energy, but the large adoption of intermittent renewable energy sources such as solar and wind will also require investment in energy storage. Both batteries and hydrogen are potential solutions for storage.


Our first speaker will be Philip Olivier, Country Chair at TotalEnergies International S.A. Japan Branch. He will present us the investments TotalEnergies has made in renewable energies and the challenges to increase the share of renewable energies in the electricity mix.


Umicore is already well-known as a precious metal recycler but they are committing to battery recycling as well. Second speaker Fabrice Stassin, Director of Government Affairs Electromobility Projects at Umicore Belgium, will give the presentation “Innovating towards sustainable batteries made in Europe”.


Third speaker will be Kazumasa Imoto, President of Solvay Japan and BLCCJ Board Member. He will shed a light on the green hydrogen activity of Solvay.


Afterwards the 3 speakers will gladly take your questions.
