Elaine Hsieh, VERGE program
As part of its annual year-end survey of influencers and partners, VERGE recently asked the question: What technology or development makes you hopeful for sustainability in the year ahead? Here’s what experts in clean energy, transportation systems and emerging technologies believe could take flight. The rise of the electrification of cars, trucks and buses in combination with an increasingly cleaner power grid was a common refrain among most. Other inspiring market-driven actions in energy, cities, water, buildings and even solutions via emerging tech such as the blockchain, machine learning and artificial intelligence hold promise in 2018 and beyond. This webinar will explore how, in an interconnected world, technology is accelerating sustainability solutions.

She has almost 20 years of experience consulting with Fortune 500 companies on sustainability, green building and technology issues.
