The company supports the goals of the Paris Agreement and net zero targets set by governments around the world. While these goals look to 2050, Neptune is focusing on what it can do in the short to medium term, recognising that actions in the next 10 years will be crucial in curbing global temperature rises.
The company’s strategy is aligned with global climate goals, acknowledging that gas will continue to play an important role in the energy transition for many years to come. The mainstay of its business will remain lower carbon energy production, but it will accelerate its plans for integrated energy hubs, using existing infrastructure and leveraging its experience and capabilities.

Bronze Sponsor: Exergy3
Exergy3 has developed innovative ultra-high temperature thermal energy storage technology that is a game-changer in the journey to net zero. Taking green electricity from the grid or a renewable energy source, our system converts it into thermal energy and stores it at ultra-high temperatures of up to 1200 °C. This energy is then discharged as hot gas to power thermal processes between 200-1000 °C. An affordable, flexible decarbonisation solution across several sectors, our technology is easily adapted to process requirements with adjustable charging power and output pressures/temperatures. Made from low-cost materials Exergy3 modules are energy dense, long-lasting, and easily installed.
