Wednesday, July 17, 5:00 pm – Toyota Auditorium
This talk will highlight findings from the Global Energy Assessment (GEA) project, launched in 2012. It defines a new global energy policy agenda – one that transforms the way society thinks about, uses, and delivers energy. Involving specialists from a range of disciplines, industry groups, and policy areas, this GEA research aims to facilitate equitable and sustainable energy services for all, in particular the two billion people who currently lack access to clean, modern energy.
