Electricity generation accounts for about a quarter of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. As such, renewable energy and electrification play a critical role in the clean energy transition. Policymakers, innovators, and entrepreneurs are already working to dramatically expand production and deployment of clean energy as well as develop new technologies that can improve air and water quality, minimize the impacts of climate change, and ensure energy security. Join us for a discussion on the growing electrification sector and the technological innovations and policy remedies that are making the clean energy transformation possible. Moderated by Jessica Olcott Yllemo, Director, Climate Security Programs, panelists include:
Dr. Venkat Srinivasan, Director, Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS) and Deputy Director, Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR), Argonne National Laboratory.
Dr. Charles Teplin, Principal, Carbon Free Energy, Rocky Mountain Institute.
Ms. Ladeene Freimuth, Senior Advisor to SAFE (formerly Securing America’s Future Energy) and the founder and President of Freimuth Group, LLC, domestic and international environmental and energy consulting firm, now in its seventeenth year.
This webinar is part of ASP’s Innovating out of the Climate Crisis programming, which seeks to explore innovations in five key clean energy areas: electrification, hydrogen, carbon emissions, agricultural technology, and hard to abate energy sectors. In addition to webinars, ASP is producing a series of briefing notes and blog posts that highlight key policy instruments, challenges, and exciting innovations that will enhance our collective ability to adapt and mitigate the climate crisis and lead to a more resilient nation.
