Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 -- inspiring ingenuity in energy solutions
Date:5/5/2011

Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, May 5, 2011 Flash forward 20 years What if our best efforts to lower carbon emissions, wean off fossil fuels, and plan for a soaring population weren't enough? Would we ask ourselves why we didn't take action sooner, transforming the ideas from our greatest innovators into the technologies needed to prepare for a more secure and sustainable future?

June 5 to 9, 2011 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, the Waterloo Global Science Initiative (www.wgsi.org) presents the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 a global conversation on how cutting-edge science and technology can be used to strategize for a sustainable energy future.

An international event

Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 is bringing together some of the world's foremost science, policy and industry experts, along with a group of young future leaders, to collaborate on the development of a blueprint document to steer the world towards a low-carbon existence. The blueprint will short list a set of promising key technologies, laying out a road map of implementation strategies.

As Patron of the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030, His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, will launch the Summit with an address on Sunday, June 5 at 1pm EST. His Excellency's address will be streamed live and on-demand at http://wgsi.org.

Personalities

The Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 has an exciting line-up of participants working towards a sustainable future. Experts like:

  • Yacine Kadi, CERN researcher who is leading efforts to build next-generation nuclear reactors that eat their own waste
  • Michael Griffin, former NASA Administrator and large-scale systems thinker
  • Vaclav Smil, Distinguished Professor and author of over 30 books on contemporary and international world issues
