Aspen Global Change Institute Workshop on "Getting Near Zero - Decarbonizing the Last 20%"
August 1-5, 2016
The purpose of this meeting is to assess the feasibility of decarbonizing the last, and most difficult-to-eliminate, portion of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. The meeting will focus on the technical feasibility of economically achieving near-zero emissions from the energy sector. Challenges to eliminating these last emissions include (1) exploiting and integrating intermittent electricity resources to achieve high reliability via supply- and demand-based strategies, (2) decarbonizing transportation sectors not amenable to electrification (long-distance trucking, aviation, shipping, etc.), (3) decarbonizing heavy industries such as steel or cement manufacture, (4) possible scale up of nuclear and CCS, and/or (5) carbon dioxide removal from the atmosphere.

Seminar at Princeton
December 5, 2016
- Princeton, NJ - Inês has been invited to present a seminar at Princeton University. Title TBA. To schedule meetings with her, please email her assistant at email@example.com
CEIC Advisory Board Meeting
- Pittsburgh, PA - CEIC’s primary mission is to work with industry, labor, government and all other relevant stakeholders to address the strategic problems of the electricity industry. While we work directly on identifying, addressing and solving important problems for the industry, as or more important is that the fact that CEIC produces a cadre of well-trained graduate student researchers, many of whom continue to address the industry’s problems in subsequent professional careers. In addition to doctoral education, CEIC has a broad educational mission that includes the development of university courses, special topic short-courses and curricular advice for training programs.
Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change Conference
- Washington DC - Following the FAS symposium, Inês will be continuing her participation in the MHDVII report committee.
Federation of American Scientists' 70th Anniversary Symposium and Awards Gala
- Washington DC - Inês will be attending the FAS 70th Anniversary on September 28 to speak at the Symposium and celebrate her co-PI of CEDM Dr. Granger Morgan who will be recieving an award.
National Academy of Engineering's 2016 US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium
- Irvine, CA - The Frontiers of Engineering program brings together through 2-1/2 day meetings a select group of emerging engineering leaders from industry, academe, and government labs to discuss pioneering technical work and leading edge research in various engineering fields and industry sectors. The goal of the meetings is to introduce these outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) to each other, and through this interaction facilitate collaboration in engineering, the transfer of new techniques and approaches across fields, and establishment of contacts among the next generation of engineering leaders.
Meetings in Northern California
- UC Berkeley, LBNL, UC Davis, Stanford - If you are located in the Northern California area and would like to meet with Inês during the week that she is there, please email her assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org
to set up a meeting.
