Please join the Columbia University Climate School – The Earth Institute and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Dr. Morgan Bazilian, Director, Payne Institute, presenting a virtual seminar titled Rethinking the Sustainability of the Clean Energy Transition on Friday, April 8, 2022 from 12:00pm – 12:50pm (MT).
While “renewable energy” and “sustainable energy” are often used interchangeably, they have subtle nuances that make a world of difference. This panel will explore these differences by discussing the sustainability of the clean energy transition, the extractive nature of renewable energy technologies, and how industry leaders are thinking about these factors. What elements need to be put in place, both upstream and downstream, to ensure the clean energy system is both sustainable and equitable to all stakeholders involved?
This panel will be moderated by Martin Dietrich Brauch (Senior Legal and Economics Researcher at CCSI).
