IESVic Seminar: CO2 utilization, conversion, capture and 10 more reasons to love tiny pipes

Our recent achievements will be highlighted along with learnings from developing and commissioning the world’s largest CO2 electrolyzer. I will also briefly outline our recent work on the upstream challenge, the direct air capture of CO2. The talk will close with a reflection on the energy transition challenge ahead and the renewed importance of energy security.

IESVic Seminar - Beyond decarbonization: The democratic qualities of decentralized energy ownership

This seminar will explore some of the implications of new conceptualizations of democracy.

I conclude by discussing whether the diversity of these emergent infrastructures challenge or strengthen the democratic claims made for them.
