TOWARDS 2050: Renewing Energy Expectations
25 March 2017
Concert Hall, QPAC

Summary

Can we achieve global carbon neutrality by 2050, and what will it take to get there?

As revolutionary technology makes renewables more reliable, accessible and affordable, global investment in clean energy continues to hit record levels. The transition to renewable energy is gathering speed worldwide and more nations are reporting fossil fuel-free energy days. What are the common challenges in achieving the ultimate power shift and how can we come together as a global community to meet them? Will markets forge our future in renewable energy or will public policy lead the way?

Our panel of experts contemplates the complete disruption of our current model of energy generation, and propose how industry, government and individuals can adopt the behavioural changes necessary for the new energy economy.
