ISSUES, CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS
Renewable energy has been at the centre of energy transition discussions worldwide as a means to tackle climate change. However, as most renewable energies are intermittent sources of energies (such as solar and wind power), their large-scale adoption and integration in energy grids have proven to be a challenge.
Various solutions such as hydrogen are being tested to overcome the challenges posed by grid integration. Emerging low-carbon alternatives and carbon capture, utilisation and storage technologies are also incorporated in transition plans – such as Singapore’s Green Plan 2030 – to lower the carbon footprint of our energy systems.
Welcoming international experts, this panel will discuss global challenges for the future of energy production and consumption as well as how concrete initiatives provide valuable feedback on the way towards cleaner energy sources and energy efficiency.
Participants may attend the panel in-person by signing up or join it online here on FB live.

Mr Jérémy Lovey, VP Development & Partnerships Asia P acific, Solar Impluse Foundation
Jeremy Lovey is the VP Development & Partnerships Asia Pacific of the Solar Impulse Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by explorer and clean technology ambassador Bertrand Piccard. It identifies and promotes technological solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way. The Foundation’s labeling process is the only evaluation available today that assesses the economic profitability of products and processes that protect the environment in the fields of water, energy, mobility, infrastructure, industry, and agriculture. It is awarded following a rigorous evaluation process carried out by a pool of independent Experts and based on verified standards covering the three main themes of feasibility, environmental impact, and profitability. Jeremy joined Solar Impulse during the first round-the-world with a solar airplane in 2015. Previously he held different positions in marketing. Jeremy has an MBA from the School of Management Fribourg and a Bachelor from EHL Hospitality Business School.
