Event description

Description

Steven Chu
William Kenan Professor of Physics and
Professor of Molecular & Cellular Physiology
Stanford University

The industrial and agricultural revolutions have profoundly transformed the world, but the unintended consequence of these revolutions is that humans are changing the climate of Earth. I will briefly describe new data on climate change, before turning to how energy efficiency and progress in carbon-free energy can provide a low-cost path to a more sustainable world. Some of my own recent research in batteries and other applications of electrochemistry will be described in the context of the remaining scientific and technology challenges that need to be overcome in the transition to clean energy solutions.
