Green financing conference by @JeffSachsCenter, highlight concall by @JeffDSachs expressing urgency for govt to formulate hard strategies to achieve deep #decarbonization esp in the #energy sector by 2050.
❄️☀️🌎 Avoiding the worst effects of climate change requires near-zero electricity sector CO2 emissions by mid-century. Failing to deploy sufficient flexible base capacity could significantly increase the cost of deep decarbonization of power systems—and thus the overall costs of climate mitigation. 👣💡⚖️ Join us for a policy luncheon and lecture on Penn’s campus at KCEP on February 1st. Guest speaker Jesse Jenkins from MIT will talk about the relative importance of various low-carbon electricity resources in near-zero-emissions power systems. 📚🍴👍 Head over to: https://kleinmanenergy.upenn.edu/events Lunch will be provided! Open to the public; registration required.
🕛 Mark your calendar now! February 1: “Getting to Zero: Pathways to Zero Carbon Electricity Systems”. https://kleinmanenergy.upenn.edu/events/getting-zero-pathways-zero-carbon-electricity-systems 🌎 AVOIDING THE WORST EFFECTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE requires 💯 near-zero electricity sector CO2 emissions by mid-century. 👇 In this 🆓 seminar, Jesse D. Jenkins from MIT will present recent research systematically evaluating the role of various low-carbon resources under increasingly stringent CO2 limits and considering a wide range of uncertainty in 🔋technology costs, 💡renewable resource quality, and 🔌demand patterns.
