Space technologies and the energy transformation

Sustainable Energy and climate change are some of the most challenging topics that need to be addressed right now. ‘How do we get to a sustainable energy system by conforming to the limitations brought about by the climate change agreement’? And ‘how do we transition to a low carbon economy?’ are questions that cannot be addressed easily. Moreover, the energy transition involves many actors and stakeholders that make finding a solution even more demanding. Space technologies and solutions can have a prominent role in addressing some of the energy related challenges

Hence the Kvarken Space Economy Project organizes a seminar on the Vaasa EnergyWeek focusing on the benefits and applications of space technology and data for the energy sector especially for the energy transformation and a greener future.
