Columbia SIPA – An Equitable Energy Transition and Considerations for Planning
There are many decision makers and constituencies in energy system planning, each of which may make decisions or influence decisions according to their own versions of the desired goals. It is clear that the future electricity generation mix of the power system will change, but the most equitable solution will be based on a country’s starting point, and their goals.
The Center on Global Energy Policy will host Dr. Destenie Nock, Visiting Faculty member at CGEP and Assistant Professor of Engineering and Public Policy and Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, for a fireside chat focused on themes related to energy poverty and sustainability including methods to leverage data to reach an equitable and just energy future. In her research and her startup company Peoples Energy Analytics, Dr. Nock has pioneered energy poverty and sustainability metrics in the electricity system.
Dr. Geoffrey Heal, Donald C. Waite III Professor of Social Enterprise and Paul Garrett Professor of Public Policy and Corporate Responsibility, Columbia Business School, will moderate the fireside chat. A cocktail reception will follow the conversation.
