Running the Planet Without Costing the Earth

CONCERT HALL QPAC

Summary

Humans need energy, and lots of it. But, our ever-warming climate and ever-increasing population means a move from fossil-fuel to clean and green sources, and quickly.

In 2018, around 70% of the world’s energy was still sourced from fossil fuels. How can the world successfully transition away from traditional, carbon-rich energy sources? Join our energetic experts to shine a renewable light on Australia’s future energy grid and what it will take for all of us to join in.

Running the Planet Without Costing the Earth is presented with Academic Partner QUT.
