Topic 1: Energy Transformation

While the foundations of our planet are governed by scientific principles, economic rules are shaped by human decisions aimed at improving our quality of life. Consequently, technology, developed to enhance human well-being, often comes at the expense of sacrificing nature. Energy is the key input for human well-being.

The world is at the crossroads,  we have experience very explosive development over the two last centuries of industrial revolution. But many people left behind. Global economy increase 100 times, energy 50 times and CO2 emissions about 30 times, respectively. Energy access for all and environment protection is a dual challenge.

We need Zero Emission strategy for environmental protection. And  the solution is energy transformation.  About $100 trillion of investment in the energy transition is needed globally by 2050 to limit rise in global temperatures to 1.5 degrees C.
