Fifth Pop’Sciences Forum: “Energies – A gradual transition”

From November 24, 2020 to December 1, 2020

The fifth Pop’Sciences Forum will run from November 24 to December 1st, 2020 and will focus on a range of energy transition issues, from concerns and myths to means of implementation. As with each edition of the Forum, a Pop’Sciences Mag will explore the various themes addressed, all while providing an overview of the current state of research conducted in Lyon and Saint-Étienne.

Everyone knows that transforming fossil fuels is taking a toll on our environment and climate. And yet, even today, more than 80% of the world’s energy sources still come from fossil fuels. We need to transform the way in which energy is produced, distributed and consumed. But while everyone is talking about the challenge of energy transition, no one seems to agree on how to achieve it. So, we need to find out why. 


A program that focuses on how the energy transition can be achieved

With its podcast and magazine, Pop’Sciences gives us an overview of the social and scientific innovations we can use to accelerate the transition to a less demanding, more efficient, more resilient and more inclusive energy system.

  • A discussion entitled “Energy saving. Do we need to slow everything down for a faster transition?”
    The best energy is the energy we don’t consume. But how can we shift to a more energy-efficient approach without clashing with deeply rooted day-to-day, social and economic practices.
     
  • The “Bio-inspired architectures” Podcast
    30% of national greenhouse gas emissions result from the building sector (energy consumption & energy cost of new buildings). Is there any way we can make our real estate portfolio carbon-neutral? Two brothers, an architect and a biologist, combine their research efforts to develop solutions for constructing and renovating buildings directly inspired by nature.
