From FORESIGHT Climate & Energy, Watt Matters is a podcast all about the energy transition and the shift to a decarbonised economy.
 

 

The Biden administration was meant to bring renewed momentum for climate action in the US, with ambitious plans to deploy low-carbon technologies and to embed climate policy into other policy areas.

However, one year and a half on, Washington is still struggling to pass ambitious legislation, with several key bills that have the potential to significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions stalled in Congress and the Senate. The US has a huge challenge ahead to build the massive infrastructure required to make the energy transition happen and to achieve a net-zero carbon grid.

This week, we discuss these and many other topics such as Europe’s energy crisis with Jesse Jenkins, an assistant professor at Princeton University with a joint appointment in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and the Andlinger Center for Energy and Environment.

Jesse also leads the Princeton ZERO Lab – a zero-carbon energy systems research and optimisation laboratory, which conducts research to improve decision-making to accelerate rapid, affordable, and effective transitions to net-zero carbon energy systems.
