Session 5: Engineering Complex Systems for Climate Change and Energy Transition

17:40 – 19:10 AZ/00:40 – 02:10 UTC, Tuesday, 1 November 2022

Tools and principles of inclusive systems engineering can enable unifiable approaches to better understand and shape approaches to climate change and guide energy transition methods. Learning from large-scale systemic failures and their broad influences become a greater responsibility in engineering design, especially to guide and manage safer complex systems to address climate change. This panel discussion will survey both technologic prospects and the essential systems approaches required to prevent and mitigate the costly consequences of climate change in culturally responsible and socially equitable ways.
