World LPG Association launches e-LPG Week

November 4, 2020 By    

The World LPG Association (WLPGA) is more than halfway through e-LPG Week, an LPG-focused event that brings together the entire value chain of the LPG industry. The virtual event, which was planned after COVID-19 forced the cancellation of the annual World LPG Forum, runs through Nov. 6.

Themed “Bringing Energy to Life,” e-LPG Week aims to rally the LPG industry through interactive sessions and events, online networking and a unique virtual showcase of LPG companies.

“LPG Week, incorporating the annual World LPG Forum, is the premier gathering of the world’s LPG sector,” says James Rockall, CEO and managing director of the WLPGA. “That we are holding the event online this year as e-LPG Week brings unique and unprecedented opportunity for the global LPG sector to debate, discuss and do business more deeply and more widely than ever before.”

Hosted by ENOC Group, e-LPG Week touches upon many industry opportunities and challenges. Topics include advocacy in a post-COVID-19 world, emerging global autogas markets, opportunities for LPG to displace higher carbon alternatives in major demand sectors, digital innovation and diversity, and innovation and developments in using LPG to achieve the social and economic development targets laid out in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals – specifically the targets in areas of poverty, hunger, health, climate change, gender equality and energy access.

The event features content from industry leaders and global influencers, including Fatih Birol, executive director of the International Energy Agency, and Dymphna van der Lans, CEO of the Clean Cooking Alliance. It includes activities such as live sessions, workshops, interactive virtual hospitality suites and knowledge exchange discussions.

“At ENOC, we share WLPGA’s vision for an LPG industry built around collaboration and sharing of best practices, and are pleased to host this year’s first e-LPG Week,” says His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC Group.

The WLPGA says the event is being hosted on an interactive digital platform with artificial intelligence technology to enhance the networking experience and build relationships, along with recorded high-level sessions allowing delegates to participate in polls, Q&A sessions and chat boards.
