  • Abstract:
    • We have the technology to slow climate change, such as wind turbines, solar panels, smart grids, heat pumps, and electric vehicles.
    • But the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy will require us to build one billion new machines.
    • We have to replace your home gas (methane) furnace with an electric heat pump, replace your gas guzzler with an electric vehicle, and replace other climate-killing machines with green machines.
    • This session will describe how the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022 will force this transition and the implications for your industry.
    • Also, how to organize five teams to fight climate change in your organization .
