Energy Solutions Forum: Series Introduction with Chris Field
The Energy Solutions Forum seminar series brings together leading researchers across disciplines in science, engineering, and business to advance understanding of solutions-focused topics in climate and energy. Seminars are led by innovators in their fields and will focus on cutting-edge research happening in the areas of carbon capture, photovoltaics, geothermal energy, batteries and more. A reception following each seminar provides the opportunity for continued dialogue and an exchange of knowledge to strengthen collaborations within and between scientific disciplines, all with the goal of saving our home planet, Earth.
Chris Field, climate science pioneer at the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability and Director of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment will kick off the Energy Solutions Exchange with an overview of climate change solutions that have the potential to improve lives now, decrease the amount of future warming, and support vibrant economies. Field has been deeply involved with national and international efforts to advance understanding of global ecology and climate change and was co-chair of Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2008-2015).
The Energy Solutions Forum is a collaboration between the College of Science, the College of Engineering, and the College of Business at the University of Nevada, Reno.
