End at 8:00 pm

There is a global revolution underway in the electricity sector, led by wind and solar. The two technologies are transforming the way we produce and consume energy, which is good news for the climate: wind and solar will prevent the emission of 3,800 million tons of CO2 each year by 2030, and it could be much more with the right policy and market framework.

The power sector is responsible for more than 40% of all carbon dioxide emissions, and about 25% of our total greenhouse gas emissions. The science is clear that emissions need to peak and decline in this decade to meet climate protection goals, and one focus has to be the power sector. 

We will talk about wind and solar power's scalability, speed of deployment and plummeting costs with experts and leaders in this space. The aim of the session is to learn from those who have hands-on in the space what are the skills needed to be part of the revolution. 

Chris Ahlfeldt

Chris Ahlfeldt has ~15 years of in-depth work experience working primarily on consulting, research, and teaching related work in the clean energy industry. Since founding Blue Horizon ECS he has managed various energy consulting projects in emerging markets such as tariff studies, renewable energy & off-grid policy, investor market entry strategy, economic development impact, and legislative/regulatory reforms in various countries (e.g. South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique, Namibia, eSwatini, Liberia, Botswana, and Thailand). He also lectures part-time on Environmental Finance for a local business school in South Africa and has led educational workshops at a number of international conferences and universities. He has an Energy Systems Engineering degree from Stanford University.

Blue Horizon Energy develops catalytic solutions for clients to enable sustainable development and accelerate the clean energy transition. With a focus on providing bespoke research and data-driven advisory services, we are well-positioned to add value for businesses, purpose-driven investors, government, and utility clients. We also have extensive first-hand experience working in emerging markets across Sub-Saharan Africa as well as in Asia and North America.

Ben Or Assaf

A 15-year veteran of technology, software, and biomedical engineering, data science, physics, electronics, solar energy, and blockchain. Founder and CEO of Greeneum, a blockchain-based platform for renewable energy applications and cleantech innovation.  Having worked for Startups and companies as SAP and with IBM, my experience spans artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and scientific research. My mission for Greeneum is to build a global community of blockchain, data security, and renewable energy founders, thought leaders, industry experts and other enthusiasts.

Ivan Komušanac

Ivan Komušanac covers policy and regulatory developments around different European countries, wind turbine technology and end-of-life issues for onshore wind turbines. He coordinated WindEurope’s Task Force on Decommissioning and Dismantling of onshore wind turbines. He finished his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Zagreb, where he was focusing mostly on long-term energy planning with a focus on renewable energy. He received his master’s degree in science at the Technical University of Munich, where he focused on power engineering.

WindEurope advocates wind energy policies for Europe on behalf of more than 400 member companies, and organises leading wind industry events.
