The road to resilience: Pathways and Maps in support of our IndustrySingapore - Singapore 22 February 2022 - 9:00am (GMT +01:00) Theme: Resilience
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the issue of resilience of our economy and society at the forefront of the political agenda. Faced with an increasingly fast digitalisation and the urgency of shifting to sustainable business models, companies have also to navigate the surging disruption of supply chains worldwide. Policymakers around the globe have designed new or updated tools to support the industry in becoming more resilient. While some countries have adopted a protectionist stance, the EU and other like-minded partners, like Singapore, continue supporting open strategic autonomy and multilateral trade. The EU and Singapore have developed in parallel policy tools that present many commonalities: on one side, the EU talks about Transition Roadmaps and on the other, Singapore talks about Industry Transformation Maps. The methodology to craft these instruments is also largely coincident and centred around a dialogue with key stakeholders from private and public sectors as well as civil society. The webinar will offer the opportunity to EU and Singapore policy makers and industry representatives to: i) present the maps and pathways developed in support of our companies and reflect on how synergies could be developed among them; ii) exchange views on how strengthen resilience beyond the simple diversification of supply chains; and ii) reinforce the exchange among public, private and academia.

ERCI Webinar | Energy Consumption Management in the Railway SectorBerlin - Germany 23 February 2022 - 10:00am (GMT +01:00) Theme: The green and digital transition
In this webinar you will learn more about innovative solutions for energy consumption management in the railway sector: Skeleton Technologies is Europe's leading manufacturer of high power and energy density ultracapacitors that are used across industries as reliable and durable energy storage solutions. With the SkelMod 51V module, Skeleton has developed the world's only ultracapacitor storage system fully certified for rail transport. Companies such as Škoda Electric and Medcom rely on the SkelMod 51V module. It enables significant energy savings of up to 30% in streetcars with kinetic energy recovery (KERS), an application in which braking energy from the ultracapacitor module bank is harnessed and used for acceleration. Skeleton won the SET4FUTURE Innovation Award 2021 and was one of the finalists of the ERCI Innovation Awards 2021. HaslerRail will present the Energy Portal which is an EN 50463: 2017 certified data collection service (web application), developed in collaboration with railway energy managers. Its main objective is to provide the railway energy manager with a modern and agile tool with which to be able to transform raw data into useful information, e.g. monitoring thresholds, distributing scheduled reports, remote control and sending of consume energy billing systems. This webinar is organised by the European Railway Clusters Initiative (ERCI). ERCI comprises 15 research and innovation-oriented railway technology clusters, covering 16 countries.

All roads lead to low-carbon ammonia. Regional perspectivesBrussels - Belgium 23 February 2022 - 2:00pm (GMT +01:00) Theme: The green and digital transition
There are different pathways for decarbonising ammonia production like the use of electrolysis-derived hydrogen and of carbon capture and storage (CCS). Businesses located in regions with limited availability of renewable energy have limited renewable hydrogen capacity. The revision of the Renewable Energy Directive which pushes the use of renewable hydrogen industry needs to address the complex local variation. By outlining the differences in low carbon energy availabilities between European regions, the event will spur a constructive discussion among policymakers, industry, research institutions and civil society in evaluating local pathways and policy levers for the decarbonisation of the ammonia industry.
