White House official heads keynote speakers at Carbon Management Technology Conference
Date:12/28/2011

WASHINGTON (28 December 2011) -- Katharine Jacobs of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Robert Fri, visiting scholar at Resources for the Future, will deliver keynote addresses at the first Carbon Management Technology Conference, 7-9 February 2012 in Orlando, Fla.

Jacobs, assistant director, climate adaptation and assessment in the OSTP Environment and Energy Division, will discuss "Climate Change Adaptation in the United States" on Tuesday, 7 February. Fri, who has more than 35 years experience as an administrator and analyst of energy and environmental policy, will discuss "America's Climate Choices" the next day.

The conference, sponsored by eight engineering societies, will bring together key stakeholders to share the latest technologies, strategies and systems related to the management and containment of carbon production. The technical program features more than 200 presentations on key topics such as business risks of carbon counting, innovative approaches to measuring IT system sustainability, research and development, and greenhouse gas quantification and measurement methods.

"Engineers from a wide range of engineering disciplines will share their perspectives on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to the risks of climate change," said Haroon Kheshgi, conference chair and head of ExxonMobil's global climate change science program.

Jim Howard, 2012 IEEE-USA president, is scheduled to be a panelist on the opening plenary session, "Leading Engineering Engagement in Carbon Management." For more on the technical program, see http://www.carbonmgmt.org/pages/schedule/tech%20program/index.php.
