Dear Alumni and Alumnae, 
Join us for our Energy lunchtime discussion to broaden your knowledge on energy transition and learn how Geneva is emerging as a global leader in the race towards decarbonization thanks to TVP Solar, and its unique thermal solar technology.

How Geneva is leading the way in decarbonization
11 may 2023, Geneva

Heating – and cooling – are by far world’s largest energy end-uses, accounting for almost half of global final energy consumption in 2021, significantly more than electricity and transport, according to the International Energy Agency. Equally, sunlight is the largest energy source of renewable energy received by the earth.

With its unique patented technologies, Geneva based TVP Solar raises solar thermal technologies up as a winning solution in the race towards decarbonization. Come and learn:

–       How Geneva is becoming a tech leader in the fight against climate change
–       Why thermal solar can outcompete other energy delivery technologies
