Events - Regional Project Energy Security and Climate Change Asia-Pacific (RECAP)
Digital Decarbonisation: Perspectives of new technologies
The aim of the event is to give a platform to discuss the newest development in decarbonisation with digital technologies like Distributed Ledger Technology, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things in Asia-Pacific. Since Digitalisation is an important instrument for Energy Transition and an enabler of two main tendencies: Decarbonisation and Decentralisation, both thoughtful to allowing the Energy Transition to taking place. The potential transformative effects of Digital Technologies and Digitalisation are vast. It may be necessary to make some direct investments and leverage incentives in society to accelerate the development of better technologies, thereby pursuing long-term decarbonisation achievements. The event starts with a story telling perspective gained from the science fiction genre to new technologies and climate change. The event is a closed workshop. Participation only by personal invitation.
