The Role of Solar Technologies in Sustainable Development

14th December 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm GMT

Free

This webinar brings together speakers from diverse fields to explore how solar technologies can contribute to realising net-zero carbon emissions, addressing technological challenges, while promoting positive dialogue between scientists, governing bodies and the public.

SuperSolar is an inclusive solar community that links research carried out by universities and industry, providing an ideal forum for researchers to connect with developments and work together to address key challenges in solar technologies.

This free webinar is the first in a series of events aimed at encouraging greater diversity in solar research by showcasing a variety of perspectives on how the broad field of solar research can contribute to CO2 emissions mitigation.

The session is chaired by wikimedian of the year 2019, Dr Jess Wade (Imperial College London) and will seek to cover a breadth of topics relevant to solar technologies research:

  • The role of solar in a smarter future energy system – Dr Madeleine Morris (The Grantham Institute for Climate Change, Imperial College London)
  • Title TBC – Professor Jenny Nelson (Imperial College London)
  • Let Communities Lead: best practices for scientists interested in partnering with communities – Charise Johnson (Policy Advisor, British Academy)
  • On the path to net zero – what can you do?  – Dr Laura Miranda Perez (Head of Materials Research, Oxford PV)
