Dr. Nasser Saidi participated as a panelist at the Aspen Institute Italia event titled “Il futuro dell’energia: innovazione, tecnologia, geopolitica” (The future of energy: innovation, technology and geopolitics) on 3rd July 2018.
Innovation in the field of energy takes place at various levels simultaneously, resulting in a truly “disruptive” combination: new digital technologies (with the growing role of artificial intelligence and blockchains); “smart grids” that permit an improved and increasingly steady coordination between supply and demand; greater storage capacity (batteries of varying sizes) that will make it possible to overcome the problem of discontinuity among renewable fonts; the availability of low-cost abundant, clean energy (low environmental impact) for people and businesses.
