In 2021, industrial activity was directly responsible for roughly a quarter of global CO2 emissions (IEA 2022). This is because industrial emissions are still dominated by fossil fuels as part of their process emissions, making heavy industry (chemicals, steel, cement and concrete, mining and aluminium) one of the most difficult sectors to decarbonise.    

However, innovation is happening all around, with hydropower already providing support to some sectors. Hydropower projects, as major users of cement and steel, can also play their part in green supply and demand innovation.  

This session will focus on the opportunities hydropower offers to support the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate industry overall, along with ways in which we can develop a greener supply chain for the hydropower industry.


  • Andhi Marjono, Head of Hydropower, PT Kalimantan Energi Hijau (Moderator)
  • Jonas Moberg, Chief Executive Officer, Green Hydrogen Organisation
  • Óli Sveinsson, EVP Research and Development, Landsvirkjun
  • Antony Lesmana, CEO, PT Kayan Hydropower Nusantara (KHN)
  • Sripeni Inten Cahyani, Minister’s Special Adviser for Electricity, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), Republic of Indonesia

Session objectives

  • Showcase how the hydropower industry is using “green” supply chains, such as low-emission steel, cement and copper, to develop new projects
  • Show how hydropower is already playing a vital role in reducing the emissions of heavy industry
  • Explore business-to-business solutions for hydropower industry and hard-to-abate sectors
