MITEI Fall Colloquium: "2030 U.S. Climate Goals: Drifting further from the target—how can we get there?"

For over a decade, the MIT Energy Initiative’s Fall Colloquium has brought the MIT community together to hear about an important area of energy research from a prominent thought leader. This year, Frances Beinecke will address the current clean energy trajectory for 2025 and delve into what will be required for the U.S. to meet its 2030 Paris Agreement commitments from advocacy, policy, and technology perspectives.

About the speaker:

Frances Beinecke is the past president of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). Under her leadership, the organization launched a strategic campaign that sharply focused NRDC's efforts on curbing global warming, moving America beyond oil, reviving the world's oceans, saving endangered wild places, stemming the tide of toxic chemicals, and advancing clean energy in China and India.

In addition to her work at NRDC, Beinecke has played a leadership role in several other environmental organizations. She currently serves on the boards of the World Resources Institute and Climate Central and is a member of the MIT Energy Initiative External Advisory Board. Beinecke holds a bachelor’s degree from Yale College and a master’s degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.
