Decarbonization Within Reach: Arun Majumdar keynotes Argonne National Laboratory Director's Special Colloquium

July 1, 2021 - 8:00am to 9:30am
Online. Hosted by Argonne National Laboratory.
Event Sponsor: 
Argonne National Laboratory

How we can achieve a decarbonized economy, working together

For leaders across the globe determined to combat climate change, mitigation via decarbonization is key. In the U.S., the desired end state has been declared — net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by no later than 2050 — but the path forward is still being mapped. Science, technology, policy, data, and other research realms will all contribute to a multifaceted approach that increases zero-carbon energy sources, reduces energy use, and advances carbon dioxide removal (including carbon capture and sequestration, natural CO2 sinks, and direct carbon air capture). This event celebrating Argonne’s 75th anniversary will explore how the potential of teamwork gives us reason to be optimistic about meeting our ambitious decarbonization goals.

Arun Majumdar, Jay Precourt Provostial Chair Professor, Stanford University to give keynote:

Energy and Climate – The Defining Issue of the 21st Century

Panel discussion to follow with Kerry Duggan, CEO SustainabiliD; Michael Greenstoe, Director, Energy Policy Institute, University of Chicago; Kawtar Hafidi (moderator), Associate Laboratory Director, Argonne National Laboratory

Registration is free and open to all.
