Hi everyone, I'm Rind from the SDG7 Youth constituency joining from France. I'm working along the organizing team of the 2021 Youth for VEF, specifically the Future-proof skills panel for youth in energy.https://www.viennaenergyforum.org/vienna-energy-forum/One of the areas that need work is the university employment gap (curriculum not suited to the needs of recruiters). On the other hand, youth are having a hard time finding professional environments in energy that are in line with their sustainable values.

Opportunity cost - I hear homeowners saying that, if they wait for better conversion rates in newer solar panels, they will get more electricity from their rooftop panels (later) by simply waiting for a year or two.
