Reducing emissions from the electricity sector requires a shift to low- and zero-emitting technologies over time. Join the Conveners’ Network for a webinar exploring low- and zero-carbon technologies available for natural gas-fired electricity generation.
This webinar is co-sponsored by the Center for the New Energy Economy, Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, the Great Plains Institute, and the Harvard Environmental and Energy Law Program. These organizations, along with the Georgetown Climate Center, work together as the Conveners’ Network, to help states and their stakeholders address the energy and environmental challenges associated with the transition to a low-carbon economy.
