How can our use of energy help us create a better future for all? 

Global energy demand continues to rise. To meet this demand energy producers are increasingly relying on innovative methods of harvesting energy from fossil fuels, nuclear and renewable sources. At the same time, public concern about the impact of anthropogenic climate change is growing, alongside tense conflicts over the human and environmental impact of energy production, distribution, consumption and waste-handling. This energy predicament raises fundamental questions about what we consider to be right or good, and the kinds of energy futures we envision for ourselves, our communities, and future generations around the world. 

It is our pleasure to invite you to Energy Ethics 2020, a virtual event taking place 9-13 November via Zoom. This event will bring together scholars, industry representatives, and members of the ERC-funded Energy Ethics team through online sessions scheduled throughout the week.
