CFI Seminar: “Decarbonization Through Electrification: Estimating the Potential and Implications”

Delavane Diaz, principal technical leader of Energy Systems and Climate Analysis at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), will present “Decarbonization Through Electrification: Estimating the Potential and Implications,” at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, in Lewis Library, Room 138.

Diaz will discuss how “deep decarbonization” goals such as New Jersey’s 80×50 Energy Master Plan will require fundamental changes beyond the electric-generation sector. One of the main strategies is to shift end-use energy demand away from fossil fuels and toward electric end-use technologies. This talk builds upon EPRI’s assessment of the state-specific economic potential for electrification, which will vary depending on policy, economic and technology factors. These pathways have important implications for planning and operating the electricity system, and they provide key insights for research priorities and stakeholder impacts.

This event is part of the Spring 2020 CFI Seminar Series, which is free and open to the public. Additional speakers and dates in this series are:

March 11

Timothy Searchinger, Research Scholar, Woodrow Wilson School and the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment; Lecturer, Princeton Environmental Institute

April 8

Frances Moore, Assistant Professor of Environmental Science and Policy, University of California-Davis
