The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted a forum on The Energy and Climate Nexus. This event examined the various changes to our energy system that could help keep climate change below a two degree threshold and help meet the goal of a sustainable energy future, including:

- Significantly increasing renewable energy deployment;
- Accelerating Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), and negative carbon emissions technologies;
- Deploying next generation nuclear technology.

Center Fellow Nobuo Tanaka, former Executive Director, International Energy Agency (IEA), offered brief framing remarks. Following his remarks, Center Director Jason Bordoff moderated a discussion with:

  • Dr. Klaus Lackner, Director of the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions, and Professor at the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, Arizona State University, and former Professor of Geophysics and Director of the Lenfest Center for Sustainable Energy at Columbia University;
  • Ted Norhaus, Chairman, The Breakthrough Institute;
