Google and the Future Nexus of Energy, Technology, & Climate

On Tuesday, October 20 the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center hosted a discussion on innovative work that non-energy technology companies are doing at the cutting edge of today’s most pressing energy and climate issues.

In this installment of our Road to Paris Climate Series, John Woolard, Vice President of Energy at Google, assessed the ways in which technology, data, and innovative financing are changing the global energy landscape. In particular, the discussion centered on Google’s efforts, which include more than $2 billion in investment, to make clean energy more accessible, scalable, and affordable across the world.
