“Energy 2050: Understanding the Present Reality and Possible Futures of the US Energy System” with Dr. Daniel Vermeer
We are rapidly running out of time to address climate change by decarbonizing our energy system – and the stakes could not be higher, profoundly impacting our climate and natural resources, economy, and quality of life. By framing our energy decisions in the context of the current system and a realistic view of the alternatives, we can make choices that are better for people and the planet.
Daniel Vermeer, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of the Practice of Energy and Environment at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business and director of Duke’s Center for Energy, Development, and the Global Environment (EDGE). He is lead contributor to policy documents issued through the World Economic Forum, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, and the United Nations Foundation.
