Summer School on Global Sustainability

Technology development has always been integral to the evolution of energy supply and use, from the discovery and development at scale of new sources to the creation of major use infrastructures such as automotive transport. The presentation will build a deeper understanding of the drives and systems that enable energy technology development, the factors that affect the implementation at scale, and the implications for system sustainability. Topics will include:

- The energy technology “eco-system”

- Commercialization and implementation at scale

- Diversifying marketplaces: fuel and transport as a case study

- Measures of sustainability and prospects for the future
