Energy Pathways for Sustainable Development: Insights from the Global Energy Assessment

David McCollum, IIASA

Wednesday, July 17, 5:00 pm  - Toyota Auditorium

This talk will highlight findings from the Global Energy Assessment (GEA) project, launched in 2012. It defines a new global energy policy agenda –  one that transforms the way society thinks about, uses, and delivers energy.  Involving specialists from a range of disciplines, industry groups, and policy areas, this GEA research aims to facilitate equitable and sustainable energy services for all, in particular the two billion people who currently lack access to clean, modern energy.

David McCollum is a research scholar with the Energy Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria. He received his doctorate in Transportation Technology & Policy from the University of California, Davis, Institute of Transportation Studies in 2011, following the completion of an MS in Agricultural & Resource Economics from the same institution, and a BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Tennessee (2004). Dr. McCollum's main fields of scientific interest include techno-economic analysis of advanced energy and transport technologies and the development and application of energy-economic and integrated assessment models.
