Innovation spotlight: Advancing technology frontiers to enable energy transition
Science and technology have a critical role to play in developing solutions that can dramatically improve the productivity of natural resources and reduce humanity’s footprint on the planet. Energy transition depends on the development and introduction in the market of new clean energy technologies. Considering inputs from technology, business, and policy experts from more than 30 nations, the GFCC Frame the Future report highlighted that the world needs to triple the investment in clean technologies in the next 10 years to avoid a climate disaster. Such new technologies need to be accompanied by novel business models, policy, and regulatory frameworks to allow for implementation and democratization of energy access. In this session, participants will hear about the prospects for future energy technologies and what can be done to accelerated clean energy technologies into the market.
