Join us as we speak with GNS Science on their Back to the Energy Future panel event taking place in Taranaki as part of Techweek
This event does not require registration.
Wed 18 May 10:10 AM - 10:40 AM
It's 2040 - Where are we and how did we get here? How did we perform in our energy transition?
Congratulations, you bought an old Delorean on Trademe. As it turns out, it's got a built-in flux capacitor and enough fuel for time travel!
You decide to take it for a spin.....and find yourself in 2040. You begin to explore and wonder, how did the energy transition and climate emergency everyone was talking about in the early 2020's turn out? Do we have hoverboards now?
Come and hear a GNS Science-hosted expert panel give a retrospective from the future about Taranaki (and the rest of the world's) energy transition. We will discuss what this future might look like, with a focus on our progress towards a zero-carbon 2050.
Our panel will feature representatives from industry and green tech, Iwi, as well as GNS scientists.
