Energy Transitions, Decarbonisation, Sustainability

La strada verso la transizione energetica è complessa e prevede che vengano presi in considerazione molti fattori economici, ambientali e sociali. Quali dati considerare? e quali esperienze internazionali possono esserci d’aiuto?

L’incontro in lingua inglese col Prof. Marc A. Rosen dell’Ontario Tech University (Canada) – ora visiting professor al Politecnico di Torino – è dedicato a queste interessanti e attualissime sfide.


Energy sustainability is important given the widespread nature of energy use, the importance of energy use in economic development, and the significant impacts that energy processes have on the environment. Factors that need to be considered and appropriately addressed in moving towards energy sustainability are energy resources, efficiency, and environmental stewardship, as well as economics, equity, lifestyle, sociopolitical factors and population.

Furthermore, energy transitions and decarbonization of energy are important factors in moving towards energy sustainability and, more generally, sustainable development and overall sustainability.

The speaker will discuss recent assessments, that identify the need for a sustained and comprehensive strategy. He will also provide practical examples of activities ongoing internationally, to resolve the challenges facing sustainable development, including climate change mitigation and energy security and access.
