(430c) The Global Energy Challenge: What’s Ahead
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 4:40pm to 5:15pm
Two examples of major changes in generation in the power sector â shale gas and solar energy â are used to illustrate what has been done to date in growing and decarbonizing electricity system. Each of these comes with its own challenges that together help define a long term strategy captured at MIT in a set of eight low-carbon energy centers. I give examples of game changing energy technologies emerging in these areas as illustrations of what needs to be done. Finally, developing countries present a unique set of challenges associated with additional economic and other constraints. The Tata Center for Technology and Design at MITEI provides a model for what can be done in these critical regions of the world.
