April 4, 2018
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Faculty House, 64 Morningside Dr., New York, NY 10027 Presidential Room 2
Over the coming decades, digital technologies are set to make energy systems around the world more connected, intelligent, efficient, reliable, and sustainable. But getting everything right will not be easy. The International Energy Agency (IEA) recently completed its first ever analysis to comprehensively depict how digitalization is reshaping the energy sector and to provide more clarity for decision makers on what digitalization means for the energy sector – http://www.iea.org/digital/. Join the Center on Global Energy Policy for a presentation and discussion with Dave Turk, IEA’s Acting Director for the Sustainability, Technology and Outlooks Directorate and Head of the Energy Division, who co-led this new IEA analysis and will present the report’s key findings. Following Mr. Turk's presentation, Patricia Culligan, Robert A.W. and Christine S. Carleton Professor of Civil Engineering and member of the Data Science Institute's Smart Cities Committee at Columbia University, will join him on a panel to engage in a discussion on the fascinating confluence of digital technologies and energy. CGEP Fellow, John MacWilliams will moderate the conversation. Registration is required. Guests unable to attend can view a livestream of the event at http://energypolicy.columbia.edu/livestream. A podcast of this event will be available ~12 days after the date of the event through iTunes and our website. This event is open to press.
