This talk will exam­ine the cur­rent state of clean energy inno­va­tion and imple­men­ta­tion. Through explo­rations of house­hold, city, and regional clean energy inno­va­tions and imple­men­ta­tion efforts, Pro­fes­sor Daniel Kam­men will both ana­lyze suc­cess­ful inno­va­tion processes and iden­tify the areas that need urgent action and tar­geted pro­grams. A mix­ture of ana­lytic and empir­i­cal stud­ies will be used to explore what steps have worked and where dra­matic new approaches are needed.


Speaker Bio:

Daniel Kam­men is a pro­fes­sor of energy at the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley, with par­al­lel appoint­ments in the Energy and Resources Group, the Gold­man School of Pub­lic Pol­icy, and the Depart­ment of Nuclear Engi­neer­ing.

His research focuses on energy sup­ply; trans­mis­sion; the smart grid and low-​​carbon energy sys­tems; the life-​​cycle impacts of trans­porta­tion options; and energy for com­mu­nity devel­op­ment in Africa, Asia, and Latin Amer­ica. He has pub­lished exten­sively on these top­ics and tes­ti­fied numer­ous times in U.S. state and fed­eral con­gres­sional brief­ings.
