Meeting the Challenge of Increased Energy Demand: Opportunities for a "Clean" Energy Matrix? | SWF 2014 FRI, APRIL 11, 2014; 13:15 - 14:30 LOCATION: SBS, EDMOND SAFRA LECTURE THEATRE Realities of climate change make the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy a shared imperative. Increased demand from emerging economies and conflicts surrounding energy generation projects only increase the complexity. Meeting energy demand while maintaining global warming under a two degree limit will require a fresh approach to solving technical, social, and political hurdles. What have we learned about different drivers for transforming the energy matrix? Do advances in Latin America and other regions offer models for building sustainable energy capacity while reducing inequality? Engage in a lively discussion of fresh experiences that may point the way toward a more sustainable energy future.
