Maxwell alumni, students, and friends are invited to join graduates and students from the College of Engineering and Computer Science for a virtual faculty conversation on Thursday, October 15 at 4:00-5:00 p.m. ET. Professor Peter Wilcoxen from the Maxwell School and Professor Charles T. Driscoll from the College of Engineering and Computer Science will be joined by Kathy Fallon Lambert from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health to discuss and engage in Q&A about the Clean Energy Futures research project.

The Clean Energy Futures project aims to quantify the efficacy, efficiency, and equity of four contrasting policy approaches for reducing electricity sector emissions, and to provide policymakers with rigorous, timely, and useable science for decision-making. In this faculty Q&A, members of the Clean Energy Futures team will outline their research approach to the project, present the team’s preliminary findings, and offer future next steps to continue this research.
