Abstract:
People, governments, and companies around the world are embracing the goal of deep carbon emission reductions to improve air quality and address growing concerns around climate change. Although global CO2 emissions continue to rise, many developed countries are lowering energy-related emissions. Viable pathways to substantially lower emissions are emerging, relying primarily on energy efficiency, cleaner electricity, and electrification (replacing direct use of fossil fuels with cleaner electric alternatives). While these strategies provide a path to substantial future emission reductions, deep decarbonization requires fundamental research to develop and demonstrate the low-carbon resources needed to take the final steps toward a low- or no-emission economy.

- Unless specifically requested by the speaker, all questions will be deferred to the end of the talk.
- The Director or a designee will moderate the post-talk discussion, (questions and comments should be relevant to subject in discussion).
