Understanding Why Cost of Energy is the Key to Sustainability
Presenter: Alex Lidow, Ph.D., CEO and Co-Founder of Efficient Power Conversion
Developing economies struggle to build energy infrastructure to support industry and bring electricity to far-flung villages. At the same time, industrialized economies are straining to balance conflicting demands for more power while decreasing the environmental impact. Finding ways to meet the rising demand for energy without plundering natural resources and aggravating climate change poses one of this century’s most significant global challenges. In this talk, we will link the true cost of energy to sort out real versus futile efforts to improve energy efficiency and show that wide bandgap semiconductors, such as gallium nitride (GaN), enable significant improvements in energy efficiency.
