Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership 2019 Retreat
Tuesday, June 11, 2019
Princeton Marriott at Forrestal
Princeton E-ffiliates Partnership’s (E-ffiliates) 2019 Retreat will focus on the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment’s new “Rapid Switch” initiative. Rapid Switch explores the limits to the pace at which the global energy economy can transition to very-low carbon. The project seeks to understand and analyze the variety of technology- and region-specific barriers, bottlenecks and unintended consequences that have the potential to slow the pace of energy transitions. By doing this in ways that respect local values and conditions, the collaboration aims to lay out viable, rapid transitions and develop strategies to accelerate those transitions.
The E-ffiliates Retreat, held at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal, starts at 9:00 a.m. and includes keynote addresses and panel discussions addressing challenges (techno-economic, business and financial, and socio-economic) associated with deep, rapid decarbonization. A student/postdoc poster session and reception will be held from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., rounding out the full day of programming.
