future cleantech architects presents

Future Cleantech Festival 24
May 28-29, 2024

Join us at this year's Festival! 

What awaits you this year:

This year, we will be focusing on structural innovation in various thematic chapters, including Transport (aviation and shipping), Construction, Innovation, and the Future Energy System.

In the Construction chapter, we will focus on technical challenges to decarbonize the sector (e.g., structural efficiency, classic CCS vs other forms of mineralization and curing) and policy incentives (standards, green public procurement, and Carbon Contracts for Difference).

The Future Energy Systems chapter will address how we can produce electricity more flexibly in a session co-organized with IRENA, as well as “How to Store Energy? – Requirements, Solutions and Barriers to Scale Seasonal Storage”, together with the European Innovation Council. Finally, our third session is a policy roundtable focused on potential solutions and market mechanisms to incentivize energy storage and flexible clean energy generation (24/7 clean PPAs, CfDs, etc.).

In the Transport chapter, the technical challenges in the aviation sector to mitigate non-CO2 emissions, as well as how to decarbonize the maritime sector, will be discussed. These sessions will be followed by an interactive policy roundtable to discuss and elevate the solutions for minimizing the environmental impact of these sectors and work towards their decarbonization.

Who we are

Future Cleantech Architects is a climate innovation think tank that exists to close the remaining innovation gaps to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. To reach this objective, we accelerate innovation in critical industries – such as cement, aviation, or shipping – where sustainable solutions are still in very early stages. We urge policy-makers to intensify and better prioritize their R&D activities. Moreover, we initiate and actively drive high-level research consortia on critical technologies for these neglected technological sectors. 

Together with international partners and co-hosts from the public and private sphere, the Future Cleantech Festival brings together the brightest minds and best ideas in cleantech worldwide. The festival looks towards a net-zero 2050, zooming in on the innovation processes in different sectors.

Europe’s most ambitious cleantech innovation festival aims to identify specific steps that will remove roadblocks and bridge the innovation gaps to reach net zero by 2050. The Festival will bring together private industries, policymakers, and research institutes to discuss and collaborate. Join us in this ambitious endeavor!
