Master of Development Practice Lecture: THE CLEAN ENERGY EMERGENCY

November 15 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

| Free

 

Pro­fes­sor Dan Kam­men holds appoint­ments at UC Berke­ley in the Energy and Resources Group (where he serves as Chair), the Gold­man School where he is the direc­tor of the Envi­ron­men­tal Pub­lic Pol­icy Cen­ter, and in the Depart­ment of Nuclear Engi­neer­ing. He founded and directs Berkeley’s Renew­able and Appro­pri­ate Energy Lab­o­ra­tory. Pro­fes­sor Kam­men is a coor­di­nat­ing lead author and con­trib­u­tor to the Inter­gov­ern­men­tal Panel on Cli­mate Change and served as the “Clean Energy Czar” at the World Bank. His role as Sci­ence Envoy for the U.S. State Depart­ment ended with his res­ig­na­tion in August 2017 over the Trump Administration’s lack of com­mit­ment to sci­ence and, in par­tic­u­lar, its fail­ure to chart a path towards a clean energy future. Pro­fes­sor Kam­men has field projects in East Africa, Cen­tral Amer­ica, and on Bor­neo where he has worked on the expan­sion and inte­gra­tion of regional energy grids in the US, Bangladesh, Chile, China, Kenya, Malaysia, Mex­ico, and Nicaragua, and on the design of energy mar­kets. Pro­fes­sor Kam­men will share lessons on his past research and look for­ward to the future of renew­able energy.
