gasworld launches Clean Energies 2.0 event

gasworld has in the last few minutes launched its latest event to the 2023 calendar, with a conference devoted to clean energies and decarbonisation to be held in New Jersey, US in June.

Sponsored by Chart Industries and titled Clean Energies 2.0, the 2.5-day conference will tackle the nexus of clean and how this not only dovetails with the industrial gas and equipment business but is actively driven by it.

Jillian (Jill) C. Evanko, President and CEO of Chart Industries, is confirmed as the official Opening Keynote for the event and will discuss the industry’s imperative role in the energy transition as well as Chart’s vision as a key stakeholder in this movement.

“Chart’s vision is to be the global leader in the design, engineering and manufacturing of cryogenic process technologies and equipment for the Nexus of Clean™ – clean power, clean water, clean food, and clean industrials, regardless of molecule,” Evanko enthused.

Officially launched at 2pm today (February 2), the event will be held from 13-15 June at The Westin Jersey City Newport hotel on the banks of the Hudson River.

Topics covered across the agenda will include the range of energy pathways from hydrogen and LNG through to e-fuels and ammonia, the wider clean value chain, and the critical technologies and cryogenic equipment that will ultimately make the energy transition happen.

The event comes hot on the heels of the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) in the US in the second half of last year, a development widely seen as ‘turbocharging’ the clean energy sector in the US and propelling the country to the forefront of decarbonisation, globally.

Evolving energy sector

Clean Energies 2.0 marks gasworld’s second full event devoted to the clean energy and decarbonisation sector.

Five years ago, gasworld took its conferences stage to Amsterdam to discuss the energy transition and how the industry – and the world – could be Positioning Today for Tomorrow’s Opportunities in its first-ever clean energies event.

Hydrogen and LNG were the main topics in focus back then. While the concept of a hydrogen society was much more in its infancy in 2018, the notion of LNG as the cleanest fossil fuel had long been established but was loaded with significant question marks.

In 2023, the outlook in clean energies is more diverse than ever, with an array of different fuel types and energy vectors in play. From hydrogen to synthetic fuels and biogas to green ammonia, the landscape is ever evolving. Hydrogen has far more traction now – but big gaps in its investment and build-out still to be overcome. Likewise, LNG faces as many questions over its future role now than it did five years ago.

Meanwhile, clean ammonia, biomethane, e-fuels and the overarching concept of circular economies are rapidly emerging and will soon change the face of energy value chains beyond recognition.

At the same time, the role of the industrial gases industry is ever growing, such is its inherent expertise in molecules and its position at the nexus of decarbonisation. Clean energies is not just big business for the gases industry, it’s a shared responsibility – yet also a double-edged sword. The industry has to wrestle with its own objectives in decarbonisation, from the implementation of renewable power in the production of air gases to making distribution and logistics smarter and reducing carbon footprints.

Opportunities exist across the value chain, while by-product gases may also arise from the circular economies approach to our energy future.

Energised by Chart – Meet the keynote and sponsor

The Clean Energies 2.0 event is enabled and energised by Chart Industries as lead sponsor, and with good reason.

Chart’s unique product portfolio is used in every phase of the liquid gas supply chain, including upfront engineering, service and repair. The company is at the forefront of the clean energy transition, and a leading provider of technology, equipment and services related to liquefied natural gas, hydrogen, biogas and CO2 Capture amongst other applications.



President and CEO Jill Evanko will be the official Opening Keynote speaker as the figurehead of Chart and in many ways the catalyst behind the company’s positioning across the clean energies spectrum.

Evanko has served as President and CEO since June 2018, having previously joined Chart in February 2017 as chief financial officer. Prior to joining Chart, she was the chief financial officer of Truck-Lite Co., LLC as well as having held multiple operational and financial executive positions at Dover Corporation (NYSE: DOV) and its subsidiaries.

Evanko was the winner of the 2020 ExxonMobil Power Play Rainmaker award, the 2020 S&P Global Platts Energy Award for Chief Trailblazer, and the World LNG Executive of the Year 2020.

She serves on the non-profit Board of Directors of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the US-India Strategic Partnership Forum (USISPF).
