CCECE 2021 Panel 5 - Net Zero Emissions and the Technology Required

#Net #Zero #Emissions

There is much discussion of reaching Net Zero emissions by various proposed dates. As with any goal, a plan or roadmap is required to reach this target. In the case of reducing emissions of green house gases significant sectors of the economy are impacted. Some notable examples are energy production and transportation.

In this panel discussion, possible technologies that can be implemented by several sectors will be introduced. The intention is to start a discussion and get people thinking about various ideas and what their impacts could be. Hopefully the takeway for participants will be an increased understanding of the technology requirements and the technical challenges to be overcome in attempting to reach a net-zero economy.
