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. Hosted by the GBSN for Energy Transition Impact Community.

Technology plays a crucial role in facilitating the energy transition. Advancements in renewable energy technologies, such as solar panels, wind turbines, and energy storage systems, have significantly improved their efficiency and affordability. Additionally, smart grid technologies, energy management systems, and digital solutions are being implemented to optimize energy use, improve grid stability, and enable greater integration of renewable energy sources into existing power systems.

Join the GBSN for Energy Transition Impact Community in Powering the Energy Transition: A Tale of Two Hemispheres Part III: Technology as we convene a multi-part series to explore key elements of the energy transition journey, through the lens of the global north and global south. During this discussion, hear from topic experts from academia and industry as we explore how technology plays a role within the global energy transition. Join us as we dive deeper into how the technology advancements on energy efficiency can achieve a sustainable and low carbon future.
