2015 Smart Grid Lecture Series: Science and Policy Innovations for a Low-Carbon Economy

February 25, 2015
Room: 
Davis Center 417 (Frank Livak Room)
Contact(s): 

How can we as a society achieve a low-carbon economy? Reducing greenhouse gases to abate climate change is a monumental undertaking, one that requires an aggressive mixture of science, technology, and policy. In this lecture, Dr. Kammen will explore and critique a number of ‘high impact’ innovations that are specifically needed to alter our energy system. He will also examine the concept of tipping points as it relates to transitions in the energy system, with examples and applications drawn from the U.S., Portugal, China, Nicaragua, and east Africa.
