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.
Technology plays a crucial role in spearheading the green energy transition, revolutionizing our approach to energy generation, distribution, and consumption. It presents innovative solutions that combat climate change and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Notably, significant progress has been made in renewable energy technologies like solar and wind power, making them more efficient and cost-effective, resulting in their widespread adoption. Smart grid systems leverage technology to optimize the integration of renewable sources into the energy grid, ensuring efficient energy distribution. Additionally, energy storage technologies, such as advanced batteries, play a pivotal role in seamlessly incorporating intermittent renewable sources by storing surplus energy for future use. While technology contributes to mitigating the environmental impact of traditional energy sources, it also creates fresh economic opportunities and fosters sustainable development.
Nevertheless, it is important to acknowledge the challenges and limitations associated with technological advancements. Integration of new technologies necessitates the concurrent evolution of policies, markets, human interactions, and adoption. To delve further into the opportunities and challenges concerning technology in the energy transition, please join the GBSN for Energy Transition Impact Community in their six part series, “Powering the Energy Transition: A Tale of Two Hemispheres Part III: Technology.”
