ARC’s European Industry Forum is part of our successful series of worldwide conferences in Europe, America and Asia. The next European Forum will be held in Sitges (Barcelona), Spain on May 6-8, 2024 and focus on “Managing Digital Transformation in the Age of AI, Open Architectures, and Sustainability”. Participants are invited to attend exclusive presentations and workshops on strategies and case studies from the digital front lines. 

ARC industry analysts and other experts from the end user and supplier communities will analyze and discuss trends and drivers for hot industry topics, such as: 

Decarbonization, Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Production

Worldwide we see a rapidly growing demand for more efficient products to lower energy consumption, reduce emissions and build a more sustainable future. Rising energy prices as well as geopolitical and supply chain issues require heavy investments in power generation and energy. Most energy generation still relies on natural resources that are being depleted due to continuous usage/extraction and impact the environment adversely.

Decarbonization, Energy Efficiency and Sustainable ProductionTo reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions, governments worldwide have imposed local regulations, putting industrial companies under increased pressure to reduce carbon emissions. Decarbonization targets require manufacturing and energy companies to limit these emissions and to invest in sustainable, energy efficient solutions and green energy sources.Recently, energy transition and sustainability are being woven into the core business strategies of industrial companies, who now have the mandate and the opportunity to tackle environmental and social challenges.

Some industrial companies have already making good progress in their digital journey, implementing energy transition initiatives and taking significant steps towards achieving sustainability goals. These efforts are powered by innovative processes, alongside transformative and decarbonization technologies. Their experiences allow for new insights and create important use cases.
