At the 27th Conference of Parties (COP 27) Climate Change Conference, governments representing more half of the global economy announced a 12-month action plan to speed the decarbonization of power, road transport, steel, hydrogen, and agriculture. The United States, Canada, Germany, Japan, and other nations backed a set of 25 “Priority Actions” to decarbonize industry, including scaled deployment of net-zero industrial plants and leveraging procurement and infrastructure funding to stimulate global demand for low-carbon industrial goods.
So, what does that COP27 agreement mean for industrial stakeholders? The U.S. industrial sector is ripe for innovation and exciting electrification advancements are paving the way toward decarbonization. This episode will discuss two new reports on industrial heating innovations and outline why the time is right for industrial corporations to implement the technologies that reduce emissions at scale.
