This event will explore how the energy sector is transforming energy production as the global energy markets shift to a low carbon economy, why this transition is occurring & possible barriers, what role clean renewable energy plays in this new energy future, and examine how to ensure this transition is done in an equitable way that ensures everyone access to affordable choices.
