Leading voices from across the energy sector have this week called for the government to support the creation of an International Centre for Artificial Intelligence (AI), Energy and Climate.
Recent PwC research found that AI could help reduce global emissions by up to 4% by 2030
Such a centre, which is being developed in collaboration with the Alan Turing Institute and the Energy Systems Catapult, would help manage the transition from a centralised and fossil fuel dominated system to a decarbonised and decentralised one.
It would "advise governments on AI-friendly policy frameworks and data access, facilitate the involvement of the machine learning community in the sector, provide bespoke innovation funding to accelerate deployment and support and develop the nascent ecosystem of start-ups in this space".
Here's an interesting push towards artificial intelligence coming from the energy sector specifically for AI's ability to help with emissions reductions-- what are your thoughts on this type of effort?
