Transforming Energy Systems to Address Climate Change
Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019
Doors open: 6 p.m.
Lecture: 6:30 p.m.
Mayo Building and Additions, Auditorium




Energy is the lifeblood of modern societies. A successful global future energy system will provide energy security, economic security, and health and environmental security. Addressing the challenge of climate change offers an opportunity to make progress on those broad goals with energy technologies that are clean, deployable at large scale, and fully cost-competitive.

During this lecture, Lynn Orr—former Under Secretary for Science and Energy, Stanford University professor, and CSE alumnus—will examine options for meeting those challenges, outline the need for additional energy innovation, and explore research and development pathways that offer important opportunities for continued progress toward those goals.
