Energy Futures: Critical minerals, Climate neutrality and Transition pathways

16.03-25.08.23, Dipoli Gallery and Aalto Virtual Exhibitions Platform

This exhibition focuses on energy transition, showcasing research from across the  schools of Aalto University with top experts. What are the challenges and solutions driving our response to the global energy crisis across research and industry?

Energy Transition is a term which refers to the process of changing global energy production and consumption from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. The global energy crisis and climate crisis are interlinked and international policy mandates from the United Nations such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) climate reportSustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) including treaties such as the Paris Agreement committing to significantly lowering carbon emissions. But is this an effective enough strategy?

In addition to reducing carbon emissions, the entire energy system requires a radical restructuring, including how we store energy and the environmental and economic impact of mineral scarcity. What does an effective transition to renewable energy sources require and what is the role of Hydrogen and Wind power in our energy future?

This exhibition will provide a combination of multidisciplinary perspectives on energy transition from ecology and biodiversity impact, environmental economics and new energy technologies to wind, hydrogen, fuel cell conversion and infrastructures.

The Energy Transition Exhibition will be held in Dipoli Gallery, Aalto University from March-August 2023. It will also be accessible online via Aalto Virtual Exhibition Platform
