The climate crisis is increasingly urgent; only a short window of time remains to avoid massive harm. At the same time, more than a billion people lack access to reliable energy sources and need such access to enjoy the education, healthcare, and access to opportunity that everyone deserves.

Experts will describe why these approaches are indispensable to solving the climate crisis and ensuring universal access to clean, reliable, affordable sources of energy.
