Which technologies have the greatest potential to transform the energy sector?


ECCC inqThe Energy and Climate Change Committee has launched an inquiry examining which technologies have the potential to disrupt the energy sector.

To start gathering initial ideas, it seeks answers to a single question: “Which innovations have the greatest potential to revolutionise energy markets, and why?”

The Committee asks for no more then three technologies or ideas per submission. It will examine all submissions and shortlist some to look at in further detail.

The Committee said it seeks — and encourages — both written submissions (of up to 1,000 words) and short video submissions (of up to 30 seconds) by 3 May.
