Nexans Hosts Virtual Roundtable on Sustainable Global Electrification

December 10, 2020

A panel of experts from Nexans will discuss the opportunities and challenges to the world’s drive to achieve sustainable electrification, including:

  •    –   How can Industry 4.0 be leveraged to create a sustainable, safer and connected electrification of the world?
  •    –   What is required to develop the grid of the future to meet changing demands?
  •    –   What is the future of offshore wind in the context of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden’s pledge and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s 10-point plan for achieving net-zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2035 and 2050, respectively?
  •    –   What steps is Nexans taking to create the plant of the future and achieve carbon neutrality by 2030?

WHO: Renewable energy experts from the leadership team of Nexans, a global cabling and connectivity company, will discuss the major issues and the company’s role in creating the vital infrastructure necessary for enabling sustainable global electrification. 

WHAT: An interactive panel discussion with Ragnhild Katteland, Executive Vice President, Subsea & Land Systems Business Group, Jérôme Fournier, Corporate Vice President of Innovation, Services & Growth and Vincent Dessale, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Executive Vice President of Building & Territories. It will be moderated by TV news journalist Sarah Lockett. 

Press attendees will be able to submit questions in advance and during the event. 

WHY: The starting gun has been fired to achieve net-zero carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. by 2035 and in the UK by 2050. This has started discussions in many quarters regarding ‘sustainable electrification,’ the key to success for these initiatives. Switching transportation, factories, buildings, etc., over to electricity generated by carbon-free sources such as solar, wind and  water from traditional power sources such as gasoline, natural gas, oil and coal will be disruptive and need to be navigated intelligently and efficiently. 

WHEN: Tuesday, December 15, 2020 at 10:30am ET (approximately 1 hour)

RSVP: To register and receive a link to join this online event, contact Henry Feintuch (914-548-6924) or Doug Wright (201-952-6033) or write to
