Showcasing WA on the world energy stage at ONS 2022 in Norway
ONS 2022 is a global conference and exhibition that assembles high-profile decision-makers as well as global influencers who are engaged in the world’s energy discussion.
This global energy meeting place provides insight and inspiration on the major trends affecting the energy sector and enables Western Australia to attract critical skills and investment into the sector, as well as promote our energy capabilities and capacity.
61,098 people from 82 countries took part in ONS 2022 and Western Australia was the only Australian State to attend this global conference held in Stavanger, Norway. We were accompanied and supported by the Australian Ambassador to Norway, Denmark and Iceland HE Kerin Ayyalaraju, Sarah Rose, Global Talent Manager at the Australian High Commission in the UK and Simon Gunn, Investment Director at Austrade Nordic.
The WA team of government, industry, academia, technology companies and the innovative WA SME winners of ‘LETs Pitch WA’ in the low emission technology space attended the conference opening and sessions, met with a variety of stakeholders including Shell, Norwegian CCS Research Centre, Equinor, Yara and TotalEnergies, hosted a popular networking function at the WA stand, delivered pitches at the Scale-Up arena, and visited AF Gruppen's ‘AF Environmental Base’ decommission yard at Vats, Norway.

Her Excellency Ms Kerin Ayyalaraju (Australian Ambassador to Norway, Denmark and Iceland);
Rebecca Brown (Director General, Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation);
Voula Terzoudi (Woodside Energy)
