The Smart Cities & Energy panel will be held at the Institute for Contemporary Art on Monday, November 5, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. During the session, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud, Matus, and Roberts will discuss how cities of the future will be smarter and stronger, thanks to advances in artificial intelligence, sensors and materials. The conversation will also touch on how new approaches to renewable energy and storage could alleviate the impact of global warming. As entrepreneurs in the clean tech sector, the panelists will also highlight how business leaders and technologists are tackling these problems and what progress can be made in the next few years. 

“There has never been a more critical time for governments, businesses, technologists, investors and other key groups to join together in the fight against climate change,” said Dr. Lampe-Onnerud. “There’s so much that we can – and must – accomplish by working together. I’m looking forward to joining Mariana and Carmichael for a wide-ranging conversation about the progress to date, the most pressing challenges and promising opportunities ahead, and how the future of smart cities and energy storage fit into the picture.”

Next month, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud and Rocky Mountain Institute Chief Executive Officer Jules Korternhorst will co-chair discussions about the transformation of the global energy system at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting of the Global Future Councils in Dubai.
