Making it Happen: Legal and Policy Tools to Accelerate Energy System Decarbonization
Date and time: June 13, 2019, 6 – 8 PM
Location: Jerome Greene Hall, Columbia Law School, room 103
While policymakers increasingly know where they’re going, questions remain about how to get there. This event will explore legal and policy tools that can accelerate the transition away from fossil fuel-based economies in key sectors: electricity, transportation, buildings, and industry. The event will feature presentations by the authors of two recent books on the topic: (1) Designing Climate Solutions: A Policy Guide for Low-Carbon Energy, co-authored by Sonia Aggarwal: and (2) Legal Pathways to Deep Decarbonization in the U.S., co-authored by Michael Gerrard.
