Socially Desirable Technology for Energy Transitions
Wednesday, March 17, 2021
11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Join UCalgary for A Conversation on Socially Desirable Technology for Energy Transitions.
Energy markets are a complex mixture of consumer preferences, industry capacity, capital investments, technological innovation, regulatory environments, and policy incentives.
Ordinary citizens and the world’s largest investors are calling for business leaders to take a holistic view of their roles in society, including social justice and sustainability, alongside return on investment and satisfying the needs of their customers. The energy transition will thus be an exercise in social innovation, first and foremost.
This conversation will explore this concept and how it will influence technology development for the transition.
