Join Tufts CREATE Solutions for a discussion with Princeton University Assistant Professor Jesse Jenkins about the Princeton University "Net-Zero America" study.

The Princeton "Net-Zero America" study provides a blueprint for the wholesale transformation of America’s energy system to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions over thirty years. The study has immediate and practical implications for government and energy decision makers in the fight against climate change and provides unprecedented detail about what needs to be built, when and where across key sectors and on a fine geographical scale. It also provides robust modeling of costs, changes in employment, implications for incumbent industries, and impacts on air pollution and public health. In this seminar, one of the report’s authors and principal investigators, Prof. Jesse Jenkins, will outline affordable paths to a carbon-neutral future.

Registration is required. Visit the event website for more information.
