MIT Technology Review’s ClimateTech event set for October 4-5, 2023

MIT Technology Review’s signature innovation and sustainability event is back for its second year on the MIT campus with an urgent call to action and special reveal of the 15 climate tech companies to watch.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — MIT Technology Review will host the second annual ClimateTech conference in-person and online on October 4-5, 2023, bringing together the leaders in the space that are funding, creating, and deploying climate technologies accelerating the transition to a green economy. This year’s ClimateTech attendees will also be the first to learn of MIT Technology Review’s inaugural “15 Climate Tech Companies to Watch,” highlighting the startups and established businesses that the editorial staff believe could have the greatest potential to address the threats of global warming.

The agenda for the two-day event is expected to explore electrification, AI, fusion, carbon capture, city-level solutions, and radical adaptations and innovations required for a sustainable future with the following breakdown.

  • Act Now | The Inflation Reduction Act is fueling innovations that are bending the emissions curve down, but we need more than a bend. We are running out of time to make the impact we need. Today we examine the technologies with the greatest potential to clean up our energy infrastructure in the shortest time.
  • The Business Climate of the Climate Business | Business needs to achieve an energy transformation on the scale of the industrial revolution at the speed of the digital age. Technology can power that transformation, but it alone cannot guarantee change. Effective policies and societal changes are essential to ensuring that climate technologies achieve their desired impact at speed and scale.

Speakers scheduled to present this year at ClimateTech include:

  • Shalanda Baker, Director, Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, U.S. DOE
  • Vishal Kapadia, SVP for Energy Transformation, Walmart
  • Celina Mikolajczak, Chief Battery Technology Officer, Lyten
  • Priya Donti, Cofounder and Chair, Climate Change AI
