The Role of Carbon Capture Technologies in the Energy Transition

March 11, 2021
8:00 PM - 9:00 PM

This event is the seventh in an ongoing series of student-only virtual seminars that pairs researchers from the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA (CGEP) and faculty members from  across Columbia University to discuss the future of the energy transition from a multi-disciplinary perspective. 

In this seminar, two scientists will discuss the importance and critical role of carbon capture technologies as a variety of industries move to decarbonize. The conversation will feature:

  • Dr. Julio Friedmann, Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA and former Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for the Office of Fossil Energy at the Department of Energy
  • Dr. Alissa Park, Lenfest Earth Institute Professor of Climate Change; Chair, Department of Earth and Environmental Engineering; Director, Lenfest Center for Sustainable Energy

Sarah Braverman (SIPA’21) will moderate the conversation. The seminar will be highly interactive, with the majority of the time reserved for discussion amongst the participants.

Additional seminar sessions to be announced!


Registration is required. This series is open only to currently-enrolled Columbia University students.

This event will be hosted via Zoom and capacity is limited. We ask that you register only if you can attend this event in its entirety.
