The consumption and production of energy contributes around two-thirds of global emissions, and 81% of the global energy system is based on fossil fuels, the same percentage as 30 years ago. In order to create a more sustainable, affordable and secure global energy system, effective policies, private-sector action and public-private cooperation are needed.
To address this issue, the EU Tech Chamber (EUTECH) Energy Alliance organized a webinar on October 06, 2022. The topic under discussion was, “Energy Independence from Foreign Markets of Fossil Energy Resources”.
The webinar started off with a short overview of the organization and a formal introduction of the five panelists by our moderator, Dr. Igor V. Gladkov who is also the coordinator of the Energy Alliance.
The webinar commenced with our first panelist, Mr. Malte Neumeier, project manager at DLR, a German Aerospace company. Second in line was Mr. Arseny Tarasov, CEO, HiPer it!, an IT services and consulting company, then, we had Mr. Dirk Hardt CEO at Quantum GmbH, an energy supplier in Germany.
The fourth speaker was Dr. Thomas Walter, managing director at Easy Smart Grid GmbH. Finally, the last speaker of the day was Mr. Thomas Rieger, CEO at Solarkiosk Solutions GmbH.
While addressing the webinar, the speakers talked about the key challenges to scale-up and sustain the growth of this sector. They discussed the challenges for installation smart solutions and talked about ways to overcome them.
Moreover, the panelists emphasized on the importance of developing a more sustainable and secure global energy system. Lack of leadership across the world is another problem when it comes to energy or climate change.
We want to thank to our respectable speakers for their informed insights on this much-needed topic. Thank you to Dr. Igor Gladkov for moderating the webinar and distributing Tree-Certificates to the panelists.
Above all, sincere thanks to all our attendees – your comments, compliments, and questions. Stay tuned for our next Energy Alliance webinar!
