Energy Game Changers

Part of the Shell “Switched On” series of events on our energy future
At this event on energy game changers organised by Intelligence² in partnership with Shell and the International Herald Tribune, we put aside for a moment the gloomy predictions about climate armageddon and looked into the exciting solutions being offered by the world of science.
We brought together five brilliant technical innovators who described a scenario decades into the future when the desert will bloom with solar panel farms, nuclear reactors will produce energy from their own nuclear waste, people will travel in low-emission driverless car trains, coal will have been made clean and green, and high-tech, small-scale homesteads will be feeding the 10 billion.
Speakers: Michael Düren, Professor Stuart Haszeldine, Robin Grimes, Wilhelm Schäfer, Colin Tudge
Chair: Katrin Bennhold
