MIT Energy Initiative Fall Colloquium: Net-zero emissions and social equity

October 21 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Former U.S. Secretary of Energy and founding director of MITEI Ernest J. Moniz will present this year’s MIT Energy Initiative Fall Colloquium.

Both analysis and observation have pointed to the need for increased ambitious efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions relative to the Paris COP21 goals. In particular, industrialized countries are converging around a goal of net-zero emissions by mid-century and net-negative beyond that. Moniz will discuss the requirements for an implementable climate action plan, with an emphasis on breakthrough innovation and the need for incorporating social equity considerations—both domestically and internationally.
