This session will open with a conversation with Larry Culp, CEO and Chairman of the Board, General Electric followed by a panel discussion on Breakthrough Technologies Redefining Our Energy Future.

The recent findings of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change confirms that climate change is hitting the planet harder and much more quickly than previously assessed, and new geopolitical realities painfully underscore the importance of transforming our approach to energy sourcing and production. As we look to scale carbon-free technologies, it is clear that wind and solar will not suffice on their own. What other, newer means of energy generation are available? What other energy resources remain to be tapped, and when are they likely to be developed at scale? Experts in energy production, investment, research, and public policy will share developments that are critical to leaving the carbon economy in the rearview mirror.
