Future Energy and Material Circulation Systems to be Created in the Region
Session Partner Daiki Axis Venture Partners, Inc.

Date: Saturday, December 9, 2023, 14:10-15:10
Place: Sunport Hall Takamatsu Symbol Tower Exhibition Hall

Life on Earth has been sustained by the energy that reaches the Earth from the sun. However, anthropogenic activities have upset the balance of the energy and material circulation system on the earth, which has been passed down from generation to generation, and alarm bells have been ringing for a long time about the sustainability of life. Now is the time for local communities to design and implement new forms of energy and material circulation that fully utilize the benefits of the sun. The speakers, who possess technology that could form the basis of such a system, and Daiki-Axis, which has long been involved in the construction of systems indispensable to the harmony of humans and ecosystems, will discuss the future technology required for the earth.
