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 investigates the factors that slow the pace of a global transition from a carbon-intensive to a low-carbon economy. The initiative aims to rigorously analyze bottlenecks and unintended consequences that may arise during the transition, and resolve them sector-by-sector and region-by-region. By doing this in ways that respect local values and conditions, the collaboration aims to lay out viable, rapid pathways to decarbonization and develop strategies to accelerate their uptake.
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.
