According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change…
Artificial Intelligence can be looked upon as a tool (but remember: a fool with a tool is still a fool!) or as a totally new technology that like wheel, steam engine, electricity and internet will lift mankind to the next level. If the latter is right, what can AI do to mitigate our climate crisis, to speed up renewable energy, foster a cradle-to-cradle economy and replace harmful materials like plastics?
Despite the Covid-19 crisis, the demand for electricity-generating technologies from renewable sources continues to grow. Out-of-the-box approaches remain central for speeding up the transition towards a more sustainable economy. Eutopia – the largest AI-powered database of green startups in Europe – is thrilled to kick off the new collaboration with its strategic partner talenteco sharing a selection of the 10 most promising green startups to watch in 2021.
