The Energy Revolution

November 8, 2022 Greening the Grid-3

Reducing global greenhouse-gas emissions at the pace necessary to avert even more catastrophic climate outcomes in the future will require a complete overhaul of the world's energy systems. To ensure that the green transition serves everyone, all stakeholders will need to come together to leverage innovations in not just technology but also policy and finance.

Join us live from COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, as global leaders convene to discuss solutions to the climate crisis.
