Theme: The Energy Revolution: Navigating the Carbon-Free Economy
POWERTRENDS 2024 CONFERENCE BACKGROUND
The Energy Revolution has arrived!
Close to 80% of greenhouse emissions stem from energy production, making it one of the main drivers of climate change. At the same time, some 760 million people are without electricity while about 2.6 billion cook with dirty unhealthy fuels, according to the United Nations. Thus, the Sustainable Development Goal 7 states: " On the way to Net Zero." As we rethink Energy, we need to reduce carbon emission but at at the same time reduce energy costs.
The timing is right. We recognize the following tipping points for such a move:
Cost of renewables continue to plunge.
Financial institutions have begun to accept decarbonization.
Public opinion favoring decarbonization continues to soar.
Innovations from the 4th Industrial Revolution are now being harnessed by the energy sector
This Business Forum will unfold the developing Revolution in the energy sector as the industry navigates the path towards a carbon - free future.
