When it comes to climate change, carbon gets both the headlines and the investment. Because it’s key to such a dire problem, it’s the most-reported and most-measured metric. Despite all this publicity and published research, this is what we’ve learned from climate change: Solving the big problem of carbon is something people can’t wrap their heads around. It’s too big, too abstract, too intractable.
Chris Romer, CEO & Co-Founder of Project Canary, and the featured keynote address at NGC&E ‘21, puts it like this:
“If we’re going to fight climate change effectively, we need to focus on things that can have an impact now and inspire businesses and individuals to recommit to the long-term fight.”
Chris will present an insightful, contextual and provoking address titled, ‘How Technology, Data and Transparency are Driving the New Energy Paradigm’ to challenge our industry and inspire creative action.
