ESEIA Launches Lecture Series on Climate and Energy Transformation

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new ESEIA Lecture Series designed to improve the understanding of complex challenges and interdisciplinary interactions involved in tackling climate change and creating a sustainable future.

Entitled Sustainable Energy Innovation Systems for Climate Neutrality, this series will provide a platform for perspectives exchange between different societal actors on what must be done to achieve climate neutrality by 2050.

The lectures will cover a wide range of topics, enabling representatives from science, education and training, business, politics, the media, and civil society to understand each other’s roles in climate and energy transformation and share their experiences.

First lecture: Photovoltaic (PV) Systems and their Applications

The first lecture, on the potential of solar PV power generation in the transition to sustainable energy systems, will be delivered at the Auditorium (Aula) of the Graz University of Technology, on 6 October 2022, from 19:00 to 21:00 CET.
