Achieving Deep Carbon Reductions
March 15, 2017 - March 16, 2017
Deep decarbonization refers to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions of at least 80% by mid-century, which are in line with what has been advised by the scientific community to avoid the worst consequences of climate change. This conference will explore how such a strategy, instead of smaller, incremental targets, would work and what technologies it might include, in order to unlock the most cost-effective, beneficial pathway towards climate protection. In particular, this event will focus on deep decarbonization of Pennsylvania’s electricity sector. National and Pennsylvania-based speakers will explore four key areas: renewable energy, energy efficiency, nuclear power, and carbon capture and storage.
