The Art of Energy Revolution: From Ultra High Voltage Power Grids to Global Energy Interconnection

The Harvard-China Project (SEAS), in conjunction with the Harvard Law School’s East Asian Legal Studies Program and Harvard Global Institute (President’s Office), will host a University-wide public talk with LIU Zhenya, former Chairman and President of State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), the world’s largest utility company. During his talk, Mr. Liu will discuss China’s innovative and ambitious idea of connecting electric grids within regions and across the world, as a means to balance variability of renewable energy resources and combat climate change. 

Mr. Liu formerly served as the Chairman and President of State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC), the world’s largest utility company. He is currently the Chairman of GEIDCO, a United Nations-endorsed and SGCC-affiliated organization that promotes grid interconnection worldwide to facilitate development of renewable energy. In this public lecture, Mr. Liu will focus on low-carbon energy transition through innovative strategies that help to integrate energy systems across regions and the world. 

The event will be conducted in Mandarin Chinese and English. Simultaneous Mandarin Chinese and English interpretation will be available. Please plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes early and bring a government- or university-issued photo ID if you would like to check-out a headset to listen to the interpretation

This event is made possible by a grant from the Harvard Global Institute on the theme of “China 2030/2050: Energy and Environmental Challenges for the Future.”
