6 Priority Actions To Responsibly Address Future Energy Needs

The Equinox Summit hosted by the Waterloo Global Science Initiative released a Communiqué noting actions that could “catalyse change on a global scale, from the the cities of the developed world, to the billions of people who live in towns and villages that lack adequate access to electricity.

Replacing Coal for Baseload power is tasked to:
Geothermal Power (Deep)
Renewables Enabled By Storage
Advanced Nuclear Power To Close the Fuel Cycle

Added to the important baseload sources, other areas singled out area;
Urban Electric Mobility
Making Cities Energy-Smart

The summit does have some videos online, as well as some of the presentation materials (Powerpoints) covered in the lectures.
