Future Energy Festival
24th November 2021 @ 8:00 am - 25th November 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Every two years, Energy Futures Lab hosts a public showcase of energy research at Imperial College London. This year, for the first time, the event will take place online and in-person over two days. The Future Energy Festival will include talks, panel discussions and a keynote lecture by Professor Tim Green, Co-Director of Energy Futures Lab. Register now and we’ll send you links to each event before they begin.
