With the twin policies of the Inflation Reduction Act and the Green Deal Industrial Plan sparking a green subsidy manufacturing race in the Global North, the ground is set for clean technology to supercharge the transition to a net-zero economy. But, can we rely on technology, in some cases, unproven, unfunded and unscalable to save the planet?

We’ll be asking and debating, how do we select which clean technologies are game changing and drive scalability and implementation?

  • What are the biggest inhibitors to the scaling of cleantech – and which industries are facing the most difficulty?
  • How can cleantech businesses best position themselves to benefit for the ‘great unlock’ of finance driven by policy in the United States, China and the European Union?
  • How can we ensure the benefit of cleantech is felt across the globe in equal measure
