How Can We Mainstream Clean Energy?


Climate change is perhaps the single greatest challenge facing society today. Minimizing global warming emissions will require fundamental changes in how we generate electricity, fuel mobility and industry, and power and condition our built environments. For at least the past two decades, an energy transition has unfolded, notably with renewables. Unfortunately, having only wind and solar play a meaningful role in power generation will be insufficient to meet the world’s decarbonization needs. What is required is a step-change in the adoption of clean energy beyond the power sector and across the broader economy. This must occur in a decade. Learn how we can bring clean energy into the mainstream, the technologies that are advancing this goal, and the opportunities for innovation.
