Physics Technologies for Green Energy

Senior leaders from across the energy sector come together to provide insights into how physics technologies are helping to generate green energy. The world has woken up to the impacts of energy generation and our society needs us to find transformational solutions that go further than has ever been required before. We will be hearing from the full range of technologies needed for net zero, including nuclear fusion, nuclear fission [small and big], renewables and low carbon hydrogen generation. We will explore how these physics technologies could work together to provide an integrated system solution whilst ensuring a fair and just transition to net zero.
