Event description

Description

59 countries, 72 cties, 63 regions and states, 9 utilities, 21 non-profit, education and public institutions, totaling more than 1.8 billion people have committed to shifting within the next few decades to 100% renewable energy.

The transition to 100% renewables is not science fiction anymore.

This energy revolution requires multiple innovative developments in engineering, new services and legislation, which will create huge opportunities for new wealth creation. Dr. Sven Teske specialised in 100% renewable energy concepts and will provide a brief overview about the required technologies, services and challenges ahead of us.
