BluWave-ai's next session in its Global Energy Transition Summit series will feature women from around the world who are leading initiatives to drive climate change mitigation.

The summit will offer multiple key perspectives on the challenge, including business insights from funding bodies and government departments working in the cleantech and energy industries, as well as engineering experts leading the development of key technologies, specifically artificial intelligence (AI), as they apply to climate change mitigation.

Each panelist will deliver a 5-10 minute presentation and participate in a question-and-answer session.  The presentation should introduce their organization, the current challenges it has identified, and what programs or initiatives it has underway or planned.

Panelists and attendees will join the event through the Zoom videoconferencing platform.

We are seeking panelists to participate in this summit.  If you have insights to contribute, please contact us.
