The future of renewable energy has arrived. It is projected that, by 2030, renewables could account for 38% of power generation in the U.S., up from 23% today. According to the International Energy Agency, annual clean-energy investment worldwide will need to hit $4 trillion by 2030 to meet the widely held commitment of net-zero carbon emission by 2050.
A critical component of the world’s decarbonization toolkit is innovation. Our path to a more sustainable future requires investment in faster and wider deployment of climate technologies that are already mature. It is equally important that both the public and private sectors continue to support emerging technologies that are still in R&D or demonstration stage.
CEWIT, IBM and IEEE are jointly hosting this workshop will engage our audience in thought-provoking discussions about the challenges and opportunities related to climate change and highlight the technical and social innovations that will help us achieve the global sustainable development goals.
The Technology and Sustainability Workshop will run from 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm.
