The world's energy and transportation systems are in an exciting period of immense change. Keynote speaker, Michael Liebreich, will address some of the key trends in technology, economics, finance and transportation which are driving these transformations, and how they interact with underlying social, environmental and development challenges. From super-low-cost renewables to driverless cars, from President Trump's promise to bring back coal-mining jobs to neonatal units in Africa getting solar power - be ready to be inspired and challenged.
Michael, in his role as Advisory Board Member for the forum, has been invited to address leaders from the global sustainable energy for all movement, including government leaders (including ministers), CEOs, financiers, philanthropists, grass-roots and civil society leaders. This address will explore the necessary conditions enabling SDG7 innovations to take off fast and at scale. Is there a set of circumstances that make innovations more successful? How can success be broadened beyond borders to entire regions and continents?
New on the conference scene, Energy Disruptors is a profit-for-purpose organisation with a bold ambition; to accelerate pragmatic and profitable solutions to the world’s biggest energy challenges by igniting a global movement of game-changing energy technologies. A time of exponential transformation is a time ripe with possibilities. Where sustainable energy and economic growth are complementary. The organisers believe leveraging the convergence of exponential technologies will advance us along the path to solving global air pollution, meeting the increasing demand for energy and eliminating energy…
Renewable energy has become a crucial part of our energy supply system, with global investments surpassing those made in fossil energies. Generation, storage, distribution and consumption of energy must be connected seamlessly and intelligently. Digitalisation and decentralisation are changing the face of the energy world. The steady rise in electricity from volatile and renewable sources requires new concepts and solutions for generating, storing, distributing and using energy efficiently. Michael has been invited to opening Day 2 (June 19) of this multi-level…
