AI to Accelerate Green Tech Action

Artificial intelligence (AI) will accelerate green technologies tipping points and action on sustainable energy, a report co-authored by the London School of Economics’ Grantham Research Institute (GRI) on Climate Change and the Environment said. The report, written alongside Systemiq, said AI will be essential over the next five years to ensuring “more than half of the tipping points for crucial green technologies will have been met”. It describes tipping points as when certain conditions are reached that allow new technologies or practices to out-compete incumbents, with exponential deployment of the solution occurring once the tipping point is crossed. Food and agriculture, trucking, and aviation are expected to reach tipping points by 2025, while shipping, steel, and cement will reach theirs by 2030. The report said that AI has the potential “to boost general intelligence, accelerate tipping points and the deployment of breakthrough technologies across economic sectors such as fusion and solar, quantum chemistry, alternative protein design and many others”.
