Atmosphere of Opportunity


MIT Technology Review’s conference
on technology solutions for climate change

Join in-person or online
October 12-13, 2022

ClimateTech 2022 is over.

New technologies across all industries are making it possible to craft business plans that transition to clean energy systems while maintaining, if not improving, market competitiveness. Net zero 2050 commitments no longer need to be based on hope, but can instead be built on technology, policy, and societal changes that will transform the economy for a sustainable future.

Join us in person on the MIT campus or online from anywhere in the world for an attendee-centric experience that features globally renowned experts, live presentations, interactive Q&As, expert-led discussions, and rich networking experiences.

In collaboration with

Looking beyond smart cities

The City Science research group at MIT proposes that new strategies must be found to create the places where people live and work in addition to the mobility systems that connect them, in order to meet the profound challenges of the future.

Agenda overview

Energy MattersTechnology is a critical mechanism to bend the emissions curve down and provide clean energy to feed our insatiable need for power. New technologies, policies, and strategies have emerged to deliver clean energy while maintaining market competitiveness.

Systems Change, Not Climate Change Climate change is a global problem with many interconnected and collectively essential solutions. None is a silver bullet. We examine the multitudes of ways individuals and organizations can make sustainable changes to decarbonize the economy.
