Pittsburgh energy forum will address carbon-reduction strategies
Strategies for reducing carbon emissions, and checking the worst effects of climate change, will be the topic of a Jan. 29 public forum at Pittsburgh’s Energy Innovation Center.
Three panelists will address, “The future of energy: Can we get to zero carbon?” from 6:15 to 8:30 p.m. at 1435 Bedford Ave.
The panel includes: Paulina Jaramillo, associate professor of engineering and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University and co-director of the Green Design Institute; Ivonne Peña, an energy analyst who has worked for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in the United States and Colombia’s Energy and Gas Regulatory Commission; Greg Reed, professor of electric power engineering at the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering and director of Pitt’s Center for Energy and the Energy GRID Institute.
A tour of the center will be offered before the panel session begins.
Bill Miller, vice president and chief operating officer of Pittsburgh Gateways Corporation, will discuss the nonprofit Energy Innovation Center’s role in workforce development, technology and assisting start-up businesses “to support emerging clean and sustainable energy markets.”
The forum is organized by StateImpact Pennsylvania, a collaborative effort of several media outlets.
