Watch what’s happening tomorrow during the TC sessions: climate

Tomorrow, June 14, is the big day for anyone interested in the latest technologies designed to combat climate change. More than 1,000 people will gather to TC sessions: climate and world final of the Extreme Tech Challenge 2022 in Berkeley, CA to hear, learn, and engage with leading climate scientists, founders, VCs, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and other visionaries. We look forward to seeing you there!

It’s a full day of content and connection, and we want to highlight just five of the many presentations happening throughout the day.

1. The climate crisis is real — the solutions should be too: It is fitting that the first panel of the first sessions of TC: Climate begins with climate science. Establishing a common understanding of the global crisis and what the future holds if we do not act decisively – and with due haste – is essential. Dr. Williman Collins, an internationally renowned expert in climate modeling and climate change science, and Dr. Kari Nadeau, a world-renowned environmental health expert, set the stage for a discussion on pragmatic and realistic ways to mitigating climate change through technology.

2. Bill Gates explains how to deploy billions in clean technologies: Gates has made the climate emergency a key part of his work in recent years. In 2015 he announced a fund dedicated to bringing the world to net zero emissions by 2050, and in the same year he founded Breakthrough Energy – a network of investment vehicles, nonprofits and philanthropic programs committed to achieving this goal. We’ll hear from Gates about what he thinks are the top priorities for investing in climate technologies.

3. Powering the future with transformative technology: This panel of folks from Extreme Tech Challenge – and straight from the “it takes a global village” file – jumps into game-changing technological innovations that are transforming industries to build a radically better world. How can business, government, philanthropy and the startup community come together to create a better future? Hear from seasoned investors and industry veterans on how technology can not only shape the future, but also where the biggest opportunities lie.

4. Kitchen suite: The direct link between farmed animals and climate change inspired Pat Brown, founder, former CEO and now visionary director at Impossible Foods, to develop better plant-based meat. So far, his vision has been a resounding success, with Impossible reaching a valuation of $9.5 billion last year. An innovative approach to its product development has propelled the company into restaurants and homes around the world. Watch Brown as he discusses the present — and future — of fake meat.

5. The road to zero emissions: Despite increasingly stringent regulations in some states and the rise of electric bicycles, scooters, mopeds, buses and cars, the vast majority of vehicles on the roads today still emit emissions from tailpipes, and current technology for building EV batteries is not zero. – respectful of emissions. Wayne Ting, CEO of Lime, and Carol Browner, former director of the White House Office of Energy Policy and Climate Change and EPA administrator, will discuss the challenges that remain and the role that innovation, policy and investment can play a part in greening transport.

But wait, check the event agenda because there is so much more – young shoots exhibiting their climate technology on the exhibition floor, the Extreme Tech Challenge 2022 World Finalswith two rounds of pitches before declaring the winner and, as always, world-class networking.
