Session: Portraits of the California Energy System in 2050: Cutting Emissions by 80 Percent
Title: The Future of Game-Changing Energy Technologies
Presenter: Nathan Lewis
Director, Joint Center for Artificial Photosynthesis;
George L. Argyros Professor and professor of chemistry at Caltech

In President Obama's recent State of the Union address, he commented on the sustainable future of America and the innovative solutions under way at Caltech, stating, "At the California Institute of Technology, they're developing a way to turn sunlight and water into fuel for our cars"

And by executive order of the governor, California is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050, while energy demand is projected to double. There are four key questions whose answers will determine the energy system of the future: How much can we control or decrease demand? How fast can we electrify light-duty transportation and most heating? How can we decarbonize electricity through a combination of nuclear power, carbon capture and sequestration, and renewable energy? How much sustainable carbon-neutral biofuel will we have? In this session, Lewis will address some of the strategies for achieving our clean energy goals.
