A New Climate, San Francisco, Oct. 12
A New Climate is an online event that will be streamed live from San Francisco on October 12, 2022, but it’s slightly different from most other similar occasions. This event will bring together businesses, tech pioneers and – what sets it apart from other climate events – the arts, to jointly come up with a response to the climate crisis.
The lineup includes chief engineer of Ford’s electric pickup Linda Zhang, Microsoft President Brad Smith, and other influential business leaders, creatives and storytellers.

Hosting the event is none other than the Carbon Capture and Storage Association with over 400 delegates and more than 70 speakers. Event sponsors include Drax, Equinor, Aker Carbon Capture, DNV, Mitsubishi, Carbon Clean and others.
Tickets can be purchased from the event’s official website and will grant access to all of the 20+ exhibitions and 15+ sessions for a grand networking opportunity and a chance to learn about the latest market intelligence supporting CCUS.
London Climate Technology Show 2022, Oct. 19-20
Aiming to become the most important climate tech exhibition, London Climate Technology Show 2022 will be the bridge between industry stakeholders in the UK’s capital on October 19 and 20.

Some of the VERGE 22 attendees include representatives of companies and organizations like Apple, Google, BlackRock, 3M, WWF, DNV, U.S. Department of Transportation, Microsoft and many others.
COP27, Sharm el Sheikh, Nov. 6-18
Perhaps the largest and most anticipated summit of its kind, the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference will take place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, from November 6 to 18. One of the main themes of this year’s conference is climate finance and making fiscal flows a reality.
COP27 will see world leaders gather at this annual meeting to share the results of climate efforts made since the previous conference and compare them to the goals set last year. The conference will also provide a podium for representatives of all sectors, from all around the world, all gathered together to offer and agree on viable solutions.
Scale For ClimateTech’s Manufacturing Bootcamp, Nov. 7-10
The free four-day bootcamp is an exceptional chance for companies barely venturing into the world of climate technology that already have a promising prototype on their hands that is ready to be produced at scale. Applications for the intensive virtual event can be submitted by October 21, with only a limited number of seats available.
Participants will get the chance to learn from industry experts and will be introduced to vetted manufacturers, supply chain specialists, and technical advisors. Specific areas of focus include carbon capture, renewable energy, building efficiency, agtech and smart grid management.
Appalachian Hydrogen & Carbon Capture Conference IV, Southpointe in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, Nov. 10
The focus of the Appalachian Hydrogen & Carbon Capture Conference is to provide a platform for speakers who are working closely with the US Department of Energy (DOE) and are intimately familiar with the workings of Washington and the oil and gas sector.
Previous speakers at this event include representatives of the fossil fuel industry, such as supermajors Shell and Equinor, as well as representatives of the rapidly developing carbon industry, such as Summit Carbon Solutions, Navigator CO2 Ventures and others.
