The Future of Energy

Hello Tomorrow Istanbul

31st October 2016 @ Sabancı Center

One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century is closing the gap between energy demand and supply with clean, reliable and affordable energy. While new sources of energy are rapidly being developed, our reliance on fossil fuels continues to remain high when meeting our day-to-day needs – to heat our homes, fuel our cars and power our computers.

To transition to a more sustainable and efficient energy system requires overcoming a number of challenges, such as increasingly scarce resources, growing energy needs and climate change. Governments and large companies are leading the way towards this shift, however, the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators will play an increasingly significant role!

Hello Tomorrow Istanbul will identify leaders in energy efficiency, renewables, Internet of Things (IoT), predictive maintenance, battery/storage and other high-end technologies that can shape the energy sector. We will hear from world leaders about the role of innovation in the energy field and will identify new business models and synergies for energy startups to cooperate with key industry players to design and build more efficient energy systems.

Turkey is home to a young, dynamic and technology savvy society. A burgeoning engineering sector and a historical bridge position between Asia and Europe offer a strong potential for technological leapfrogging. As Hello Tomorrow, we can play a crucial role in accelerating this transition. As an energy economist actively involved in tech-startups, I am immersed in the world of technology and science-entrepreneurship. Turkey offers highly valuable lessons for markets around the globe and the insights gathered here will be applicable internationally. We will showcase international success stories between science-startups and corporates, link investors with high-impact startups and take a deep dive into the fundamentals of building a high-impact startup ecosystem. Building Hello Tomorrow in Turkey, a country that harbors enormous – yet untapped – potential, is a natural mission for me.
