A global zero energy system for all

Workstream 4: A global zero energy system for all

The goals are clear: we must achieve net zero globally by mid-century and adapt to protect communities and natural habitats. The question is, how can we work together to create an inclusive and diverse environment working towards this common goal, while still being cognizant of our own individual and local challenges?

This session tours the globe to explore the approaches different countries and cultures are taking as we work to achieve the most paramount goal of our generation; zero carbon energy systems.

Learn the innovative ways that people in different parts of the world are working towards these goals to create an affordable clean energy future together.
