A talk by Dan Reicher, Senior Research Scholar, Stanford Woods Institute for Environment, Stanford University
Conquering climate change will require a rapid shift to low-carbon energy in the power, transportation, industry and building sectors. Making that transition quickly and cost-effectively means unprecedented and coordinated work at all three points of the “Clean Energy Triangle”: technology, policy and finance. Major low-carbon technologies in all four of the key energy-using sectors need to be developed and deployed at unprecedented scale. Speaker Dan Reicher has worked across all three points of the Clean Energy Triangle. Most recently, he brokered a major agreement between the U.S. hydropower industry and environmental community on a new coordinated and better-funded approach to the nation’s more than 90,000 dams.
Talks will be offered both virtually via Zoom and in-person at 107 Norman Smith Hall on the UMaine campus in Orono. Registration for participating via Zoom is required for each talk; please go to individual event pages to register.
