IEEE TechEthics and UN DESA online event: New Technologies, Ethics and Policy Engagement for Sustainable Development – Universal Access to Energy

11 February 2021
11:00 – 14:00 (EST)

What are some of the most promising new and emerging technologies to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all? What is their development and demonstration status? What remains to be done? What scale of investment is needed? What are some of the key ethical, legal and policy-related concerns? And how can you engage in UN and IEEE activities in this space? This event will address these key questions and more via presentations by leading technologists, moderated discussion with speakers, and Q&A sessions with attendees.

Part of a new series of online events conceived by IEEE TechEthics and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) as a way to facilitate and share technology solutions and promote substantive discussions among policy makers, engineers, legal experts, ethicists, social scientists, and others on a variety of topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals.
