Webinar | 21st Century Energy Transitions: How Do We Make It Happen?

03 May 2022
Register by May 1, 2022

Join this session to learn about the many energy sources available to humanity and where technology is providing exciting new solutions to energy and environmental challenges. Find out what roles energy storage must play to support the transition and discuss how we can optimize transition processes. Examine competing viewpoints (“realities”) to enable energy transition, focusing on the practical challenges in bringing about change on a global basis. We will bring all these issues together to examine how the energy transition process is progressing and what we must do to create pathways to achieve our goals.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the complexity of systems supplying energy to people around the world
  • Evaluate the merits and the costs associated with each major available energy source
  • Explore competing viewpoints of how quickly, practically, and effectively global societies can transition to alternative energy sources
  • Critically examine the many innovative ideas and ventures proposed to take humanity to a future with abundant energy and fewer environmental impacts

This session will be held on ON24.
