Around 20 participants of the European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ECEEE) Summer Study gave up an hour of their time on a sunny afternoon by the sea to come and discuss disruptive low carbon innovations. The mini-workshop focused on ranking innovations by their potential disruptiveness and their potential impact on CO2 emissions. Participants […]
The RethinkX think tank in California has released a new report on the disruptive potential of self-driving electric vehicles. A rapid shift to mobility-as-a-service using fleets of autonomous vehicles available on demand could reduce emissions by a jaw-dropping 90% within the next 15 years … according to the ‘Rethinking Transportation‘ report.
Charlie Wilson gave a talk on the challenges of limiting warming to 1.5oC as part of a Climate Lab seminar series at University College Cork in Ireland. He argued that current approaches to low carbon scenarios and modelling were constrained in scope, and considered the evidence that disruptive innovations could contribute to the 1.5oC goal. You […]
Discussions from two back-to-back workshops on disruptive low carbon innovations have been compiled, analysed and synthesised as a series of key findings under eleven themes. These findings are set out in a synthesis report from the workshops available here:
Two workshops were held in London in March 2017 to explore the potential contribution of disruptive innovation to reducing carbon emissions. The innovator workshop on March 7th focused on innovations and markets, bringing together leading firms, investors, market intermediaries, and policymakers in different domains including mobility, cities, energy supply, and food. The researcher workshop on […]
Key insights from two back-to-back workshops on disruptive low carbon innovations were captured in wall collages under five themes: innovations, drivers, barriers, policies (from the innovator workshop); research needs (from the researcher workshop). Photos of these wall collages are available here:
The SILCI project team are really excited that Kathryn Myronuk is coming over to the UK to join a high-level workshop on disruptive low carbon innovations. Kathryn is Chair Emeritus at the Singularity University in California, and a leading global thinker on exponential technologies and disruptive trends. Among many other accolades, Kathryn was named by CNN as […]
