Event date: 20 November 2018
Guests were invited from venture capital, start-ups and from a variety of industries, to network and take part in a debate on the role digital technologies can play in accelerating the transition to a lower carbon future.
After an opening from BP’s head of ventures David Gilmour, including a now famous frog video, Michael Wilshire, BNEF’s Head of Strategy presented new data on the key areas where digital has most potential. Michael then moderated a panel featuring Jacqueline de Rojas, President of techUK and Paul Massara, CEO of Electron.
Jacqueline talked passionately about digital skills and the need for diversity in coding, while Paul talked about digital twins and grids. Both talked about fairness and the challenges of bringing along consumers – and governments.
