Our Energy Future. Science and Technology Challenges for the 21st Century

Energy is at the heart of our economic well-being but with a long term future clouded by uncertainties about oil and gas supplies, an increasingly important role for new energy sources, and by the impacts of global warming on the environment. In this talk Thomas J. Meyer, Arey Professor of Chemistry, Director of the UNC Energy Frontier Research Center on “Solar Fuels,” and former Associate Director of Strategic Research at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, will discuss this increasingly important global issue. He will discuss emerging and future technologies that could increase sustainability and efficient use of existing energy supplies with a focus on solar energy and an analysis of the status of energy research and policy issues in the US.

The Clean Energy Institute Interdisciplinary Seminar Series was established to bring distinguished leaders in the field of clean energy to campus to present their research and meet students, postdocs, and faculty from departments across the Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, and the Environment.
