Energy leaders in industry, academic, and the public sector convene at Princeton for Energy Dialogues City Series
The Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University and Energy Dialogues LLC convened the Princeton City Series conference on February 18, 2020. The conference covered regional and global topics in the changing energy landscape: transitioning New Jersey and the broader PJM grid to a carbon-neutral electricity supply; achieving large scale carbon sequestration in the U.S. and internationally; and messaging in environmental communications including corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting.
The conference welcomed nearly 60 participants, led by Princeton faculty, senior research staff and visiting fellows who moderated panels and roundtable discussions. On hand were state government officials, energy investors, NGO representatives, and a diverse set of energy industry practitioners. The event included two panel discussions, one moderated by Professor Michael Celia, director of the High Meadows Environmental Institute, and one moderated by Jesse Jenkins, assistant professor at the Andlinger Center. Professor Elke Weber, associate director of the Andlinger Center, gave a midday presentation, which was followed by roundtable discussions that engaged attendees on the conference’s key topics.
