Leading the Energy Transition - MITEI IAP non-credit course

Tuesday, January 31, 2023 at 11:00am to 1:00pm

Leading change is never easy but the goal of global decarbonization requires a different approach than the traditional approaches.  Although technical innovations are necessary, they are not sufficient to bring about the global energy transition.  

In the 2023 version of this mini course, we have invited some international energy transition leaders from academia/education, industry, government and utilities to inspire us and share their latest strategies in accelerating the energy transition.
