The Pennsylvania Environmental Council announced today that online registration is now available for Achieving Deep Carbon Reductions: Paths for Pennsylvania’s Electricity Future. This event will be held March 15th and 16th at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in downtown Pittsburgh.
Deep decarbonization refers to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions of at least 80% by mid-century, which are in line with what has been advised by the scientific community to avoid the worst consequences of climate change. This conference will explore how such a strategy, instead of smaller, incremental targets, would work and what technologies it might include, in order to unlock the most cost-effective, beneficial pathway towards climate protection. In particular, this event will focus on deep decarbonization of Pennsylvania’s electricity sector. National and Pennsylvania-based speakers will explore four key areas: renewable energy, energy efficiency, nuclear power, and carbon capture and storage.
