Equinox Summit: Energy 2030
ABOUT EQUINOX SUMMIT: ENERGY 2030
How can we use the latest science and technology to prepare for an electricity-hungry future while limiting our impact on the planet?
This was the fundamental question behind the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 – a multinational, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary collaboration between scientists, policy experts, entrepreneurs, and a forum of future leaders from across the world.
From June 5-9, 2011 summit participants shortlisted the most promising energy technologies for the generation, distribution, and storage of electricity. Then, they outlined a roadmap to their implementation in the decades ahead. Their recommendations for investment and focus culminated in the Equinox Blueprint: Energy 2030.
