Zoom Webinar ...Power After Carbon: Transitioning to Low-Carbon Power in the United States

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 | 12:00-1:30 p.m. EDT

The U.S. power sector is in the midst of a rapid transformation driven by several broad and interlinked trends: electrification of existing sectors such as transport and heat, and connection of new customers; decentralization of production and storage of electricity; and modernization of physical and digital grid infrastructure. Central to each of these themes is the need for continued and accelerated decarbonization of electricity in order to mitigate the impacts of climate change and protect human health.

In this webinar, panelists will discuss how the U.S. power sector can deliver abundant, affordable, secure, and flexible power as we transition to a low-carbon and increasingly electrified economy.

Panelists:
  • Dr. Peter Fox-Penner, Founder and Director of Boston University’s Institute of Sustainable Energy and Professor of Practice in the Questrom School of Business. Author of Power After Carbon (2020) and Smart Power (2010)
  • Cheryl LaFleur, Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia University and Member of the Board of Directors of the Independent System Operator of New England (ISO-NE)
  • Richard Kauffman, Adjunct Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia University, Chairman of the New York Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), and Chair, Generate Capital
  • David R. Hill, Adjunct Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia University and Director on the Board of Directors of the New York Independent System Operator Inc (NYISO)
  • Moderated by Dr. Melissa Lott, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy, Columbia University

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
