Inspiring Bristol Green Tech Innovators
We're delighted to showcase a set of lightning talks from three fantastic Bristol Green Tech innovators, as part of the Bristol Technology Festival 2021 -
"Seeing the wood for the trees with corporate activism" - Jaya Chakrabarti MBE, Chief Evangelising Officer at Project Vana.
With recent press coverage on afforestation being a way to “fix the planet”, there is dire need for decent LIVE data on land ownership to identify where trees can be planted. There is also a complexity when it comes to the most effective land use once that land has been identified. Corporate land ownership data is a missing piece of this puzzle. It is our intention to fill in some blanks using available corporate transparency data and technologies.
"Building up Buttercup, creating a sustainable e-learning and publishing business" - Rachel Mills, Founder at Buttercup Learning
Buttercup Learning creates educational content to inspire children, their carers and teachers alike to care for our planet. Rachel shares her experience developing sustainable web design and digital products that match her larger vision for Buttercup Learning. Her goal to explore and provide digital and craft-based carbon literacy to other creative tech, ed tech businesses and creative students.
"The cooling crisis: How global cooling is contributing to global warming" - Molly Allington, CEO at Albotherm
Air conditioning alone accounts for 20% of electricity usage from buildings and 10% of total global electricity usage. To stop this cycle in its tracks, we need to make better use of our natural resources and find more sustainable alternatives to air conditioning. Molly will take about how she develops paints that are designed to reflect the sun's rays at high temperatures, reducing solar gain and helping to cool buildings without burning fossil fuels.
