Energy Transition and Energy Security- Can we have both?
Martin Wilkes will discuss the achievements made in reducing energy poverty around the world and look at how reducing emissions may impact our ability to continue to provide the sustained and increasing demands of energy supply.
As we transition away from carbon intensive energy production to low and zero emissions technologies, what are the issues that have already been discovered, and can we mitigate these whilst still reducing emissions? The presentation will provide examples of progress made, known issues, and open discussion for debate around mitigation options and future choices.
