Good Things Happen Episode 3: Innovation in Energy

Season 2

Global climate change is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges we face in the 21st century. Achieving global carbon neutrality, or “net zero,” will require a major energy transition – one that’s far easier said than done. What inventive new technologies will be needed to facilitate energy transition? Today, we’re learning how global institutions can help to enable urgent, climate-focused adaptations – sooner, rather than later.

In this episode, we chat with Dr. Ed Morse, Citi’s Global Head of Commodity Research, and Amy Jaffe, Managing Director of the Climate Policy Lab at Tufts University, to learn about the intersection of climate science, policy, and finance, and how those guiding the energy transition are designing systems that put wellbeing first, for people and the planet.
