Description

In the United States, the majority of greenhouse gas emissions originate in the energy sector, whether from electricity generation, transportation fuel use, end use efficiency, among other areas. Moreover, energy technologies and policies supply the most promising path forward to reduce emissions, prepare for and respond to the impacts of climate change, and partner with other countries to do the same. DOE leads research and development across a portfolio of technologies central to addressing climate change. These technologies range from new solar technologies, advances in carbon capture and storage, technologies that increase building efficiency, microgrids, and many more. This event will highlight recent advances in DOE-led research across a suite of technologies that reduce emissions and make the energy system more resilient. Technology experts from DOE, the National Labs, and the private sector will present on the technologies critical to building a pathway toward a low carbon economy.
