Research Distinguished Lecture Series - Opportunities and tools for a net-zero emissions world
The governments and corporations of the world have made increasingly strong commitments to achieving net-zero GHG emissions by 2050, with many setting ambitious emissions reductions targets for 2040, 2035, and 2030. Increasingly, these commitments are matched by enabling policies which are moving private capital into key markets including energy, infrastructure, and manufacturing. The constraints of a net-zero world are stringent and severe, requiring novel technology, business models, investment, and infrastructure to succeed. This talk will explore a few of the foundational elements of a net-zero world, and explain opportunities for innovators in every sector.
