Portable short stories on surviving the blackout

Three events reflecting on some of the environmental emergencies of the contemporary world on the occasion of the exhibition Blackout. Allora&Calzadilla.
Starting out from the works on show, Marco Gisotti, environmental journalist, and Antonio Disi, ENEA researcher, put forward possible solutions and valid models for clean and sustainable energy. Three stories that bring together information and knowledge, artistic energy and technology, stimulating the desire to live in harmony with nature, safeguarding the efficient development of the planet.

Will we be capable of producing clean energy?

The third and final event will reflect on the work Sola Catastrophe (2016), constructed from pieces of solar panels. The energy sector has for some time been in phase of profound transformation: startling technological innovation is bringing about a revolution and the establishment of new paradigms of consumption and production. With this new approach even a ordinary citizen can become a prosumer, both producer and consumer of clean energy generated through renewable resources.

An event produced in collaboration with ENEA, National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development.
