Powering up, sustainably

Run time: 13:00 – 14:00

We rarely think about the energy systems that prop up our existence. With hot water, lighting, and digital entertainment all available at the flick of a switch, it's easy to underestimate the vast global network that makes these things possible. 

Growing up in Iraq, Yasmin Ali regularly experienced power cuts – ironic for a country rich in oil and sunshine. Now as an engineer working in energy, she has a deep appreciation for what these resources mean for our lives. 
Join her for the Presidential Address for Engineering and journey across the globe to reveal the bigger picture. Where we get energy from, how it is moved and used around the world – and why we need to understand the whole system if we want to transition towards a clean, green future.
