Columbia Energy Tech Revolution Forum – Wind Energy: How Did We Get Here and What’s Next?

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for the Columbia Energy Technology Revolution Forum, a new webinar series hosted by Paul Dabbar, CGEP Distinguished Visiting Fellow and former Under Secretary for Science at the U.S. Department of Energy. The series will focus on frank, practical, scientific and technological discussions on the prospects of new technologies in the energy world. Each session will bring together experts to focus on a different energy technology.

Energy technologies in the last twenty years have advanced significantly, and much of what is currently being deployed, including now-prevalent technologies such as solar, wind, batteries, and advanced drilling, was not commercially available in the not-so-distant past. In the last 10-15 years, public and private R&D has significantly advanced a long list of new technologies that are now competitive without government incentives.

Much of the current dialogue from energy policy makers focuses on existing technologies; this forum will instead address what is next in new and emerging technologies. The forum will help inform the audience of the state of various technologies, their prospects to make further contributions to the energy mix, and how these technologies should be further invested in, from basic discovery through deployment.

The discussion will examine how wind technology evolved from the technology failures and bankruptcy era of 2000 to the industry we see today. Speakers will explore the evolution of U.S. wind policy and technology over the last twenty years, the future of wind technology, and policies that would support further deployment.

Title: Digging Deeper to Understand the How Soils Respond to Climate Change

Abstract: Soils store over three times as much carbon as our atmosphere, and as soils warm, they have the potential to become a large positive feedback to climate change. Over half of this organic carbon is stored in deeper soils, but most climate change experiments have only focused on surface soils. Here I explore the vulnerability of deep (>20 cm) soil carbon to climate change through a series of experiments in locations ranging from hardwood temperate forests to tropical Hawaii to old agricultural fields. I have found that the response of deep soils to climate change varies greatly across these ecosystems and is likely dependent on its availability to the soil microbes that consume it. This conclusion is supported by a global meta-analysis of radiocarbon values among different soil carbon pools, which vary in their availability to microbes.

Bio: Dr. Caitlin E. Hicks Pries is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Dartmouth College who is broadly interested in how terrestrial ecosystems and soils are responding to climate change. Caitlin did her undergraduate work in biology and environmental studies at Middlebury College and earned an M.S. in Soil and Water Science and a Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Florida. She then became a postdoctoral researcher in the Climate Sciences Department at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory before moving to Dartmouth. Her current research projects focus on the controls of soil carbon cycling including the susceptibility of soil organic carbon to climate change and how plant communities and their associated microbes affect soil carbon storage. Caitlin’s research spans ecosystems from tropical forests to temperate forests to tundra and from forests to managed grasslands. She has been awarded early career awards from the Forest, Range and Wildlands Division of the Soil Science Society of America and the Biogeosciences Division of the European Geosciences Union.

The Biden administration has set a target of 30 gigawatts of operational offshore wind capacity by 2030 as part of larger efforts to halve US emissions by the end of the decade and achieve net zero by midcentury. According to the Department of Energy, this goal would support 77,000 jobs, generate enough electricity to power more than 10 million homes, and cut 78 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

However, the US offshore wind industry is still nascent and myriad obstacles remain before such an ambitious goal can be realized. It requires coordinated action from states and the federal government, and the policies, and market structures that are put in place today will have a huge impact on the future of the industry and its ability to deliver on the promise of clean energy, jobs, and technology.

Join Resources for the Future for a virtual workshop, where we will address and identify key policy, market and finance issues that will impact the direction of the offshore wind industry in the United States.

Companies around the world are increasingly focused on ways to reduce their climate footprint. 1,500 companies now have set Science-Based Targets (SBTs) and many companies are setting Net Zero Targets. Reducing food loss and waste in a company’s operations and supply chain is an underappreciated approach for reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Hosted by WRI, Cargill, and Champions 12.3, this event will dive into new guidance on how companies should quantify the GHG benefits from reducing food loss and waste, how to incorporate these reductions in their company inventories and science-based GHG reduction targets, and how to communicate about the climate benefits of reducing food loss and waste.

Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for a discussion on growing momentum behind clean hydrogen as a decarbonization solution in the United States and beyond. This event will also launch the new book from Marco Alverà, chief executive officer of Snam, The Hydrogen Revolution. Join us to hear from key policymakers and industry leaders about the potential for hydrogen to play a key role in the energy transition and how that potential can be unlocked through policy and investment.

Clean hydrogen will play a critical role in the global energy transition, with opportunities for deployment across many industries, including into the hard-to-abate sectors of heavy industry, transportation, and buildings. Unlocking that potential, however, will require a rapid scaling of clean hydrogen production across several regions and the rapid deployment of hydrogen-compatible technologies in these industries, in addition to massive investment into hydrogen transportation and storage infrastructure. Policy and investment momentum behind the fuel has been building over the past year, with significant investment into hydrogen projects and ambitious policies laid out in Europe, the United States, and around the world.

In this Atlantic Council event, industry leaders and policymakers will discuss the opportunities for hydrogen development, examine the challenges facing broad deployment, and chart a path for helping hydrogen overcome those challenges to become a key tool in the race to decarbonize the global energy system.

Meet the Authors:

Curriculum and Learning for Climate Action: Toward an SDG 4.7 Roadmap for Systems Change

Series:

IBE on Curriculum, Learning, and Assessment, Volume: 5

Volume Editors: Radhika Iyengar and Christina T. Kwauk

The world is on a track to true climate catastrophe, with unprecedented heat, floods, wildfires, and storms setting new records almost weekly. To avoid a climate disaster, we need rapid, transformative, and sustained action as well as a major shift in our thinking - a shift strong enough to make the climate crisis a center of our social, political, economic, personal, and educational life.

Curriculum and Learning for Climate Action is one of the best scorecards in comparative education for keeping track of this drama as it unfolds, shedding light on the global climate crisis like no other education writing today. This book turns to our curricula, our education systems, and our communities for a response on how to effectively achieve Target 4.7 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Universal Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), and Global Citizenship Education (GCED). The message from key stakeholders, including students, educators, and leaders of civil society, is driven home with passion and uncommon clarity: We can and must stave off the worst of climate change by building climate action into the world’s pandemic recovery.

Will send zoom link to the registrants before the event.

Carbon mineralization is a process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) becomes bound in rocks as a solid mineral. This happens naturally at a slow rate as certain rocks are exposed to carbon dioxide, permanently removing small amounts of CO2--the leading greenhouse gas--from the atmosphere each year. A new report co-authored by Columbia University scholars finds the climate change benefits of enhancing carbon mineralization processes could be enormous. The ICEF Carbon Mineralization Roadmap explores several strategies, including injecting CO2-rich fluids into underground rock formations and exposing crushed rocks to CO2-rich gases. The report recommends that policy makers and businesses devote considerably more attention to carbon mineralization in their climate change strategies. Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy as several co-authors of the report present their recommendations for using carbon mineralization processes to help achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Profound changes in state and federal policy are shaping the landscape for carbon capture, use, and storage in real time. Throughout the United States, these changes may be felt most in Wyoming, where extractive industries have long contributed to the economy, the culture, communities and tax base. As the energy transition mounts, Wyoming’s leaders, companies, and experts will help determine the rate and magnitude of deployment of carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS), which will affect every aspect of life and commerce in the Equality State. The Center on Global Energy Policy’s Women in Energy program is delighted to announce the fourth event in the Women in Energy CCUS Roadshow series. This initiative aims to highlight the extraordinary accomplishments of women in the CCUS field and empower a workforce that is equitable, diverse, and strong by advancing equality and opportunity. The WIE program seeks to address institutional barriers to entry, help organizations and companies recruit women and improve retention, and empower women to achieve career growth through educational programming, enhanced visibility, and broader networks. The Center works in collaboration with local universities, non-governmental organizations, and public institutions to design cross-cutting, innovative programs that aim to improve the understanding of global challenges through a transdisciplinary, transcultural and applied perspective. Please join us for a discussion of the changes in federal and state laws concerning CCUS and how those changes might affect investment, development, climate, and communities in Wyoming. The conversation will feature energy experts from Wyoming who will also discuss ways to grow women’s share of the energy workforce and what organizations in the public and private sectors are looking for in new recruits. Moderator: Dr. S. Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA Speakers: Dr. Holly Krutka, Executive Director, University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources Sarah Forbes, Director, Carbon Capture and Storage, Center on Environmental Quality, Executive Office of the President Deepika Nagabhushan, Client Project Manager, Carbon Direct ",
Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for the next episode of EnergySource Innovation Stream. This series highlights new energy technologies with the potential to reshape the global energy system through discussions with companies and individuals working diligently to bring those innovations to market at scale. On Tuesday, December 7 from 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EST, the Global Energy Center will host Rod Colwell, chief executive officer of Controlled Thermal Resources, to discuss lithium recovery from Salton Sea geothermal brines and how this fully integrated process will support a sustainable lithium battery supply chain in the United States. Randolph Bell, senior director and Richard Morningstar chair for global energy security at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, will moderate the discussion. Lithium is a key ingredient in the batteries that keep our cellphones and laptops fully charged, store solar and wind energy, and power electric vehicles. Ambitious EV targets are increasingly being matched by policies and regulations stimulating market growth. In the United States, a 24 percent automotive market share for electric vehicles is expected by 2026, on the way to President Biden’s 50 percent goal by 2030; meanwhile, China aims for a 20 percent share by 2025, increasing to 40 percent by 2030. ???????Consequently, lithium industry analysts forecast demand to more than triple by 2025, rising to a million metric tons and outpacing projected supply by 25 percent. There is added pressure for the US government to secure a robust domestic lithium supply chain; the United States currently produces no battery-grade lithium products and is wholly reliant on imports for this critical mineral. Rod Colwell will explain how lithium recovery from Salton Sea geothermal brines in California’s 'Lithium Valley’ is set to transform the industry and deliver 100% US lithium products with the highest sustainability credentials available in the world today.

The U.S. Department of Labor has proposed a new rule that encourages pension fund managers to consider environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors in their investments. The Department argues this would give managers greater discretion in choosing fund investments. Critics contend that this creates serious risks of politicizing investments and creating conflicts of interest between ideological managers and plan beneficiaries. Please join CEI for an online discussion on this proposal and its implications, with introductory remarks by former Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia. Public comment on the proposed rule, “Prudence and Loyalty in Selecting Plan Investments and Exercising Shareholder Rights,” closes on December 13. "
It’s become clear that electric vehicles will play a major part in the future of transportation. Recent actions from the Biden administration, such as an August executive order aiming for 50% of new vehicle sales to be zero-emission by 2030 and a $7.5 billion investment in electric vehicles as part of the recent infrastructure deal support this vision of a decarbonized transportation sector. Industry groups have also made commitments to expand their electric vehicle offerings. GM, for example, recently announced that their lineup would be fully electric by 2035. This webinar will examine the current state of the industry, the challenges associated with meeting these goals, and panelists’ views on required policy support.

COP26 - Building Block or Stumbling Block for U.S. Utilities?
November 29 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
What does COP26 mean for U.S. electric utilities?

The high-stakes U.N. global climate change summit in Glasgow, Scotland, is over and its impact is being assessed by utilities. Does it give utilities the framework they need to continue their decarbonization efforts, and assist them in facing up to naysayers in their communities? Or has COP26 emboldened the opponents of utilities moving to renewables and other green power sources?

Has COP26 demonized utilities in the public’s eye, ignoring all the other sources of greenhouse gases?

These questions and more will be addressed during this USEA Virtual Press Briefing. USEA Acting Executive Director Sheila Hollis will give opening remarks, and Llewellyn King, who organized this briefing, will moderate.

The general audience can submit questions using the Zoom Q&A function, but members of the media will be given preference. A recording will be made available after the briefing.

Phasing-Out Coal in Germany & Appalachia.
November 29 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Join DAAD/AICGS Research Fellow Thomas Fröhlich as he presents a comparative study of the coal phase-out in West Virginia and the Lusatia region in Eastern Germany.

East Germany and West Virginia are currently undergoing a transformation from a local economy that is dependent on the extraction of fossil resources, in particular different forms of coal, to an economic structure that cannot depend on the income from this natural resource any longer. What are the experiences of the affected communities? How are the local grievances dealt with and social needs addressed? And, can we identify best practices and learn from these different but shared experiences? This seminar will present initial findings from three months of field work in the United States and offer insights into the key similarities and crucial differences, successful models of regional development, as well as recommendations to manage structural change successfully via a just transition.

Salute to Service - The Role of Veterans in the Energy Transition.
November 30 | 10:00 AM
In honor of Veterans Month, please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for a public conversation with veteran clean energy leaders. The distinguished panel members will share their insights on career paths from the military to the energy industry, the importance of the national security-advanced energy nexus, and the role of veterans in the energy transition.

For the past several decades, US service members have deployed abroad to protect American interests and secure the US energy supply. The US military is the largest institutional consumer of petroleum in the world, and thousands of soldiers are tasked with the dangerous job of guarding fuel convoys as they transport oil across the desert in forward-deployed arenas, many losing their lives in the line of duty. Further, domestic and global military installations are increasingly threatened by climate risk, as floods, storms, and extreme heat damage bases and electrical grids, undermining overall military performance.

Through their lived experiences in uniform, US veterans understand the importance of the clean energy transition for national security, military efficacy, and global stability. As a mission-driven community with critical skills and applicable experience, US veterans are well-positioned to play a pivotal role in the green economy and the clean energy future.

Super Grids & Power Reforms - Unlocking China’s Clean Energy Transition.
November 30 | 9:00 AM
China’s development has long relied upon cheap coal, but over the past decade environmental concerns have led the government to install record-breaking amounts of wind and solar energy capacity. Deploying renewable energy where it is needed and integrating it into the grid is a major challenge. Critical reforms to drive this power sector transition are still ongoing to address trading energy between provinces, market reforms, renewables integration, and energy efficiency.

We welcome you to join this China Environment Forum event, where our speakers will discuss how China is grappling with power sector reforms and how they could enable the nation to meet its goal of net zero carbon by 2060. They will also look at the implications of Chinese visions of a “new energy cloud” and a “supergrid” of ultra high voltage power lines.

Drawing on his decade-plus of power sector work in China with the Regulatory Assistance Project, Max Dupuy will share insights into the evolution and obstacles to power sector reform in China. Yan Qin (Refinitiv) will target her talk on the latest regulations and moves in power market deregulation and cross-provincial power trading that will be critical to integrate more renewables onto the grid. Anders Hove (GIZ) will discuss the need for China’s grid to improve flexibility and the current trend to use energy storage and, eventually, electric vehicle charging to balance renewables.

The Future of U.S. Climate Policy with Representative John Curtis.
November 30 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
A binding global agreement to tackle climate change remains elusive in the wake of COP26. As emissions from China and other major polluters continue to rise, governments remain sharply divided over issues such as the future of fossil fuels, national emissions targets, and financing for developing countries.

Meanwhile, the United States has succeeded in driving down its own greenhouse gas emissions more in absolute numbers than any other country since 2005. But finding the correct balance of innovation, regulation and technology to achieve further reductions remains the subject of vigorous debate.

How should the United States proceed to tackle climate change, both domestically and on the global stage? Join Hudson Institute for a conversation with Representative John Curtis, Chairman of the Conservative Climate Caucus, and Research Fellow Nate Sibley.

The Hydrogen Revolution and the Energy Transition
November 30 | 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for an exploration of the role of hydrogen in the energy transition. The discussion will focus on the role of low-carbon hydrogen in meeting the world’s climate goals and energy needs, as well as why hydrogen presents a profound business, social, and health opportunity (and how green hydrogen may be cheaper than many fossil fuels within five years). The event will feature opening remarks from Marco Alverà, CEO of Snam, and serve as the U.S. release of his book, The Hydrogen Revolution.

For years, hydrogen was outcompeted commercially by abundant and cheap fossil fuels which were freely available and not bound to other molecules. Hydrogen was (and is) made mostly from fossil fuels for fertilizer production and refining, contributing to global warming. Recently, low-cost renewable energy, advanced technologies, and commercial tests demonstrating the ability to transport it in some existing pipelines have lowered the cost of producing and using hydrogen for heat, power, and transportation. Hydrogen offers a realistic path to decarbonize and has the potential to displace fossil fuels, even in “harder to abate” sectors. If so, it could rapidly and profoundly lower industries’ carbon burden, boost economic growth, provide greater climate and energy equity, and encourage nations to address climate change collectively.

Moderator:

Valeria Robecco, President, United Nations Correspondent Association (UNCA)

Panelists:

Marco Alverà, CEO, Snam Dr. Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA Mark Gallogly, Co-Founder, Three Cairns Group Amy Myers Jaffe, Managing Director of the Climate Lab, The Fletcher School, Tufts University

America in One Room Climate and Energy: Discussion Results from a National Deliberative Poll
December 1 | 12:30 PM

America in One Room: Climate and Energy,a Helena project, is the largest controlled experiment with "in-depth deliberation" ever held in the U.S. It addressed this question: What would the American public really think about our climate and energy challenges if it had the chance to deliberate about them in-depth, with good and balanced information?

If the American people - or in this case, a representative sample of them - could consider the pros and cons of our different energy options, which would they support? Which would they cut back on? What possible paths to Net Zero would seem plausible to them? Which proposals would they resist? Can the public arrive at solutions to our climate and energy dilemmas that transcend our great divisions, especially our deep partisan differences? Can they also find common ground across differences in age, race, and region?

These and other questions will be discussed on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 12:30-2:00 p.m. PST

Panelists will include:

Nicole Ardoin, Director, Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER), Associate Professor of Education and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford University

The Climate Footprint of Plastics - Search for Solutions in Asia, Europe & the United States.
December 1 | 9:00 AM
When most people think of plastic waste, they might picture discarded bottles on the ground or straws in the sea, but along the entire supply chain—from oil extraction and manufacturing to disposal—single-use plastic packaging waste is emitting carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. The Center for International Environmental Law estimates that without drastic steps to reign in plastic use, by 2050, up to 13 percent of our total remaining carbon budget will be used up by plastics. The International Energy Agency predicts that petrochemicals, including plastic, will account for 45% of the growth in oil and gas mining from 2018 to 2040. A growing number of researchers and activists are warning that the world must drastically reduce single-use plastic production and consumption to keep the earth from warming beyond the 1.5°C target.

At this China Environment Forum, speakers will delve into market changes, policies, lawsuits and technologies critical to reducing virgin plastic resin and plastic waste. Starting with Carroll Muffett (CIEL) who will outline the often-hidden sources of carbon emissions along the plastic lifecycle. Next, Von Hernandez (BFFP) will highlight the climate-plastic nexus in Asia and the efforts of groups on the ground to counter the false solutions being promoted by corporate polluters to justify the continuing production and use of throwaway plastic.

Alice Mah (University of Warwick) will share her research into the environmental and social impact of the growing petrochemical pollution in China’s Yangtze River Basin. Rosa Pritchard (Client Earth) will report on her organization’s work pushing for new laws that limit unnecessary single-use plastics and bringing legal cases in Europe that make plastic producers responsible for the environmental costs of dealing with plastic waste.

Columbia Energy Tech Revolution Forum – Wind Energy: How Did We Get Here and What’s Next?

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for the Columbia Energy Technology Revolution Forum, a new webinar series hosted by Paul Dabbar, CGEP Distinguished Visiting Fellow and former Under Secretary for Science at the U.S. Department of Energy. The series will focus on frank, practical, scientific and technological discussions on the prospects of new technologies in the energy world. Each session will bring together experts to focus on a different energy technology.

Energy technologies in the last twenty years have advanced significantly, and much of what is currently being deployed, including now-prevalent technologies such as solar, wind, batteries, and advanced drilling, was not commercially available in the not-so-distant past. In the last 10-15 years, public and private R&D has significantly advanced a long list of new technologies that are now competitive without government incentives.

Much of the current dialogue from energy policy makers focuses on existing technologies; this forum will instead address what is next in new and emerging technologies. The forum will help inform the audience of the state of various technologies, their prospects to make further contributions to the energy mix, and how these technologies should be further invested in, from basic discovery through deployment.

The discussion will examine how wind technology evolved from the technology failures and bankruptcy era of 2000 to the industry we see today. Speakers will explore the evolution of U.S. wind policy and technology over the last twenty years, the future of wind technology, and policies that would support further deployment.

ESS Seminar: Dr. Caitlin Hicks Pries, Digging Deeper to Understand the How Soils Respond to Climate
December 2 | 11:30 AM

Please join us for this Virtual Fall Seminar Series with our Speaker: Caitlin Hicks Pries, Ph.D.

Title: Digging Deeper to Understand the How Soils Respond to Climate Change

Abstract: Soils store over three times as much carbon as our atmosphere, and as soils warm, they have the potential to become a large positive feedback to climate change. Over half of this organic carbon is stored in deeper soils, but most climate change experiments have only focused on surface soils. Here I explore the vulnerability of deep (>20 cm) soil carbon to climate change through a series of experiments in locations ranging from hardwood temperate forests to tropical Hawaii to old agricultural fields. I have found that the response of deep soils to climate change varies greatly across these ecosystems and is likely dependent on its availability to the soil microbes that consume it. This conclusion is supported by a global meta-analysis of radiocarbon values among different soil carbon pools, which vary in their availability to microbes.

Bio: Dr. Caitlin E. Hicks Pries is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Dartmouth College who is broadly interested in how terrestrial ecosystems and soils are responding to climate change. Caitlin did her undergraduate work in biology and environmental studies at Middlebury College and earned an M.S. in Soil and Water Science and a Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Florida. She then became a postdoctoral researcher in the Climate Sciences Department at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory before moving to Dartmouth. Her current research projects focus on the controls of soil carbon cycling including the susceptibility of soil organic carbon to climate change and how plant communities and their associated microbes affect soil carbon storage. Caitlin’s research spans ecosystems from tropical forests to temperate forests to tundra and from forests to managed grasslands. She has been awarded early career awards from the Forest, Range and Wildlands Division of the Soil Science Society of America and the Biogeosciences Division of the European Geosciences Union.

Offshore Wind - Today’s Challenges & Tomorrow’s Opportunities.
December 2-3 | 9:00 AM
The Biden administration has set a target of 30 gigawatts of operational offshore wind capacity by 2030 as part of larger efforts to halve US emissions by the end of the decade and achieve net zero by midcentury. According to the Department of Energy, this goal would support 77,000 jobs, generate enough electricity to power more than 10 million homes, and cut 78 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

However, the US offshore wind industry is still nascent and myriad obstacles remain before such an ambitious goal can be realized. It requires coordinated action from states and the federal government, and the policies, and market structures that are put in place today will have a huge impact on the future of the industry and its ability to deliver on the promise of clean energy, jobs, and technology.

Join Resources for the Future for a virtual workshop, where we will address and identify key policy, market and finance issues that will impact the direction of the offshore wind industry in the United States.

The Hydrogen Revolution - Clean Hydrogen’s Role in the Energy Transition.
December 2 | 11:00 AM
Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for a discussion on growing momentum behind clean hydrogen as a decarbonization solution in the United States and beyond. This event will also launch the new book from Marco Alverà, chief executive officer of Snam, The Hydrogen Revolution. Join us to hear from key policymakers and industry leaders about the potential for hydrogen to play a key role in the energy transition and how that potential can be unlocked through policy and investment.

Clean hydrogen will play a critical role in the global energy transition, with opportunities for deployment across many industries, including into the hard-to-abate sectors of heavy industry, transportation, and buildings. Unlocking that potential, however, will require a rapid scaling of clean hydrogen production across several regions and the rapid deployment of hydrogen-compatible technologies in these industries, in addition to massive investment into hydrogen transportation and storage infrastructure. Policy and investment momentum behind the fuel has been building over the past year, with significant investment into hydrogen projects and ambitious policies laid out in Europe, the United States, and around the world.

In this Atlantic Council event, industry leaders and policymakers will discuss the opportunities for hydrogen development, examine the challenges facing broad deployment, and chart a path for helping hydrogen overcome those challenges to become a key tool in the race to decarbonize the global energy system.

It requires coordinated action from states and the federal government, and the policies, and market structures that are put in place today will have a huge impact on the future of the industry and its ability to deliver on the promise of clean energy, jobs, and technology.

Join Resources for the Future for a virtual workshop, where we will address and identify key policy, market and finance issues that will impact the direction of the offshore wind industry in the United States.

Toward an SDG 4.7 Roadmap for Systems Change

About this event

Meet the Authors:

Curriculum and Learning for Climate Action: Toward an SDG 4.7 Roadmap for Systems Change

Series:

IBE on Curriculum, Learning, and Assessment, Volume: 5

Volume Editors: Radhika Iyengar and Christina T. Kwauk

The world is on a track to true climate catastrophe, with unprecedented heat, floods, wildfires, and storms setting new records almost weekly. To avoid a climate disaster, we need rapid, transformative, and sustained action as well as a major shift in our thinking - a shift strong enough to make the climate crisis a center of our social, political, economic, personal, and educational life.

Curriculum and Learning for Climate Action is one of the best scorecards in comparative education for keeping track of this drama as it unfolds, shedding light on the global climate crisis like no other education writing today. This book turns to our curricula, our education systems, and our communities for a response on how to effectively achieve Target 4.7 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Universal Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), and Global Citizenship Education (GCED). The message from key stakeholders, including students, educators, and leaders of civil society, is driven home with passion and uncommon clarity: We can and must stave off the worst of climate change by building climate action into the world’s pandemic recovery.

Will send zoom link to the registrants before the event.

Offshore Wind: Today’s Challenges and Tomorrow’s Opportunities
December 3
The Biden administration has set a target of 30 gigawatts of operational offshore wind capacity by 2030 as part of larger efforts to halve US emissions by the end of the decade and achieve net zero by midcentury. According to the Department of Energy, this goal would support 77,000 jobs, generate enough electricity to power more than 10 million homes, and cut 78 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. However, the US offshore wind industry is still nascent and myriad obstacles remain before such an ambitious goal can be realized.

Columbia SIPA - How Can Carbon Mineralization Help Fight Climate Change?
December 6 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Carbon mineralization is a process in which carbon dioxide (CO2) becomes bound in rocks as a solid mineral. This happens naturally at a slow rate as certain rocks are exposed to carbon dioxide, permanently removing small amounts of CO2--the leading greenhouse gas--from the atmosphere each year. A new report co-authored by Columbia University scholars finds the climate change benefits of enhancing carbon mineralization processes could be enormous. The ICEF Carbon Mineralization Roadmap explores several strategies, including injecting CO2-rich fluids into underground rock formations and exposing crushed rocks to CO2-rich gases. The report recommends that policy makers and businesses devote considerably more attention to carbon mineralization in their climate change strategies. Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy as several co-authors of the report present their recommendations for using carbon mineralization processes to help achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions. Moderator: David Sandalow, Inaugural Fellow, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA Speakers: Dr. S. Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA Dr. Peter Kelemen, Arthur D.

Columbia SIPA - Carbon Capture and Storage in Wyoming: Fill ‘Er Up
December 7 | 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Profound changes in state and federal policy are shaping the landscape for carbon capture, use, and storage in real time. Throughout the United States, these changes may be felt most in Wyoming, where extractive industries have long contributed to the economy, the culture, communities and tax base. As the energy transition mounts, Wyoming’s leaders, companies, and experts will help determine the rate and magnitude of deployment of carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS), which will affect every aspect of life and commerce in the Equality State. The Center on Global Energy Policy’s Women in Energy program is delighted to announce the fourth event in the Women in Energy CCUS Roadshow series. This initiative aims to highlight the extraordinary accomplishments of women in the CCUS field and empower a workforce that is equitable, diverse, and strong by advancing equality and opportunity. The WIE program seeks to address institutional barriers to entry, help organizations and companies recruit women and improve retention, and empower women to achieve career growth through educational programming, enhanced visibility, and broader networks. The Center works in collaboration with local universities, non-governmental organizations, and public institutions to design cross-cutting, innovative programs that aim to improve the understanding of global challenges through a transdisciplinary, transcultural and applied perspective. Please join us for a discussion of the changes in federal and state laws concerning CCUS and how those changes might affect investment, development, climate, and communities in Wyoming. The conversation will feature energy experts from Wyoming who will also discuss ways to grow women’s share of the energy workforce and what organizations in the public and private sectors are looking for in new recruits. Moderator: Dr. S. Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University SIPA Speakers: Dr. Holly Krutka, Executive Director, University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources Sarah Forbes, Director, Carbon Capture and Storage, Center on Environmental Quality, Executive Office of the President Deepika Nagabhushan, Client Project Manager, Carbon Direct ",

EnergySource Innovation Stream with Controlled Thermal Resources: Sustainable Lithium from Geothermal Brines
December 7 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for the next episode of EnergySource Innovation Stream. This series highlights new energy technologies with the potential to reshape the global energy system through discussions with companies and individuals working diligently to bring those innovations to market at scale. On Tuesday, December 7 from 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EST, the Global Energy Center will host Rod Colwell, chief executive officer of Controlled Thermal Resources, to discuss lithium recovery from Salton Sea geothermal brines and how this fully integrated process will support a sustainable lithium battery supply chain in the United States. Randolph Bell, senior director and Richard Morningstar chair for global energy security at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, will moderate the discussion. Lithium is a key ingredient in the batteries that keep our cellphones and laptops fully charged, store solar and wind energy, and power electric vehicles. Ambitious EV targets are increasingly being matched by policies and regulations stimulating market growth. In the United States, a 24 percent automotive market share for electric vehicles is expected by 2026, on the way to President Biden’s 50 percent goal by 2030; meanwhile, China aims for a 20 percent share by 2025, increasing to 40 percent by 2030. ???????Consequently, lithium industry analysts forecast demand to more than triple by 2025, rising to a million metric tons and outpacing projected supply by 25 percent. There is added pressure for the US government to secure a robust domestic lithium supply chain; the United States currently produces no battery-grade lithium products and is wholly reliant on imports for this critical mineral. Rod Colwell will explain how lithium recovery from Salton Sea geothermal brines in California’s 'Lithium Valley’ is set to transform the industry and deliver 100% US lithium products with the highest sustainability credentials available in the world today.

Book Talk: Making Climate Policy Work

Victor, Professor of International Relations at the School of Global Policy and Strategy at the University of California, San Diego and co-lead of the initiative on energy and climate at the Brookings Institution, for a discussion of their new book, Making Climate Policy Work. Following their presentation, they will be joined by Dr. Jessica Green, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto, and Dr. Varun Sivaram, CGEP Senior Research Scholar, for a conversation moderated by Jason Bordoff, CGEP Founding Director.

From the publisher:

“For decades, the world’s governments have struggled to move from talk to action on climate. Many now hope that growing public concern will lead to greater policy ambition, but the most widely promoted strategy to address the climate crisis – the use of market-based programs – hasn’t been working and isn’t ready to scale.

Danny Cullenward and David Victor show how the politics of creating and maintaining market-based policies render them ineffective nearly everywhere they have been applied. Reforms can help around the margins, but markets’ problems are structural and won’t disappear with increasing demand for climate solutions. Facing that reality requires relying more heavily on smart regulation and industrial policy – government-led strategies – to catalyze the transformation that markets promise, but rarely deliver.”

In Crowding Climate Danger Zones, Seeking Paths to 'Managed Retreat
December 16 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Even if the world somehow rapidly curbed emissions of heat-trapping gases, momentum in the climate system guarantees decades would pass before there would be any significant slowing of coastal immersion or moderation of extreme weather.

That means communities must work now to spread resilience and, where vulnerability is already extreme, pull back from danger zones. In this webcast, experts in relevant fields explore the goals of Columbia University's upcoming international online conference on the emerging concept of "managed retreat" and some of the latest ideas for cutting risk in flood, heat and wildfire hot spots.

Join host Andy Revkin and Earth Institute colleagues Lisa Dale, Alex De Sherbinin and Radley Horton (who are on the organizing committee for the conference).

Dale teaches in Columbia's undergraduate program in sustainable development and works on climate change adaptation, with a focus in the American West and Sub-Saharan Africa; de Sherbinin is a geographer whose research focuses on human responses to global environmental change; Horton is a Lamont Research Professor focused on projecting climate change, the intersection of extreme weather and human affairs and adaptation strategies.

You'll also meet Laura Lightbody, director of the Flood-Prepared Communities Initiative of the Pew Trusts, and Stephen M. Strader, an assistant professor in the Department of Geography and the Environment at Villanova University. With Walker Ashley of Northern Illinois University, Strader has refined an "expanding bull's eye" mapping methodology clarifying sources of existing and projected risk in flood, wildfire and storm danger zones.

Learn more about the conference and how to submit abstracts (through January 15): http://j.mp/managedretreat2021

Here's more on the conference:

The 'At What Point Managed Retreat? Resilience, Relocation and Climate Justice' 2021 conference will address a range of scientific, social, policy and governance issues around managed retreat (also known as strategic realignment and planned relocation). The conference, a major initiative of Columbia University's Earth Institute, will bring together stakeholders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors, together with academics, scientists, and community representatives, to help develop a common understanding of this complex issue, and move the needle toward equitable solutions. A major emphasis will be on issues of environmental justice, in recognition that the people most impacted by decisions around retreat have a key role in these conversations.

Our goals are to:

(1) advance the research agenda around managed retreat in an interdisciplinary, solutions-oriented way;

(2) facilitate networking and discussion among many types of stakeholders, and bridge the information gap between academics, practitioners, and affected communities; and

(3) develop concrete solutions and best practices around a complex climate adaptation issue.

Abstracts must be submitted by January 15, 2021.
