The Clean Energy Revolution

With climate change threatening to spiral out of control, the time has come to accelerate our transition from oil,coal and gas to alternative energy sources.  

Our burning of fossil fuels dates back millennia, but our reliance on them in the past two centuries has increased dramatically.  

Solar, wind, tidal, geothermal energy as well as advances in energy storage offer greener alternatives. That’s before we even get to nuclear fusion, long considered the Holy Grail of energy solutions – a clean and virtually limitless supply of energy that could in principle provide all our power with almost no carbon emissions – and large scale fusion projects worldwide appear tantalisingly close to achieving it. Although some claim that fusion is thirty years away and always will be.

How can governments, businesses, scientists, and citizens work together to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy? This virtual panel discussion aims to find out.
