COP27 - Are microgrids the next big thing?

Wednesday 16 November 2022
10:00am - 10:45am
Online event

Join this online live event with experts discussing how microgrids are revolutionising renewable energy solutions and helping achieve COP27 aspirations for access to clean and modern energy.

The world is undergoing a transformation in the way energy is generated and supplied. Microgrids are at the forefront of the revolution.

The panel will discuss the social, economic and environmental impact of microgrids. Indonesia has a large population of about 240 million people with an average age of around 30 and although the majority of people live on the island of Java, there are 6000 inhabited islands.

Digital education has revolutionised the way of providing education across this geographically dispersed country to support study at school, continuous professional development and to reach those who are unable to attend formal education either because of geography or lack of means.
