GBSN for Energy Transition Impact Community

The global energy transition will involve the accelerated deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. For the most, part big tech companies have committed to achieving zero emissions from their own activities. But it is their work in digitalization, artificial intelligence and information systems that could be potential game-changers in creating the smarter, more flexible energy systems needed to get to net-zero emissions. 

The GBSN for Energy Transition Impact Community is pleased to convene a five-part virtual series, Powering the Energy Transition: A Take of Two Hemispheres. The series will explore key elements of the energy transition journey through the global north and global south lens. Sessions will bridge attention to common goals with deep dives into critical nuances that differentiate the energy transition stories unfolding in different parts of the globe. 

Join us for Part I: Setting the Stage, on Tuesday, 2 May at 10:00am EDT/19:00 CEST, co-hosted by University of Houston, C.T. Bauer College of Business, Wits Business School, and Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. Leaders from academia and industry will help to set the stage for our series looking at the energy transition journeys in the global north and south. We will explore the different energy transition paths through a north/south lens, and deep dive into areas in which those stories intertwine with common purpose and opportunities for shared learning and collaboration across a global network of business schools and their industry partners.
