The theme for Energy Days 2022 is Mobilizing Energy and Climate Solutions. The focus will be on what it will take to mobilize solutions that achieve net-zero emissions or beyond. Within this theme, there will be four conference tracks: Advancing Technology Research and Development; Addressing Energy Inclusion, Equity, and Justice; Catalyzing Capital Investment; and Achieving Implementation. Keynote speakers, panels, breakout sessions, and a poster session will allow for deep discussion and engagement within these tracks.
The workshop will feature interdisciplinary presentations, panels and discussion groups with the goal of initiating new research collaborations and initiatives on fungal biomaterials.
This year's Colloquium on the Environment speaker is L. Hunter Lovins, president and founder of Natural Capitalism Solutions, a non-profit founded in 2002 to champion sustainable development.
