About the Event: To avoid catastrophic climate change, we must accelerate our efforts to decarbonize the energy system. In the U.S., power generation accounts for roughly a third of greenhouse gas emissions. This talk will present results of research to evaluate the effect of several different trends in the power system including the retirement of coal and nuclear power plants, increased penetration of wind power, and deployment of utility-scale storage to provide energy and ancillary services to the grid.
