My Climate Change News

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO) is hosting a webinar on the challenges and opportunities in equitable solar workforce development, efforts to improve diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in the solar industry, and potential ways for solar employers and labor unions to work together to ensure quality jobs and a stable workforce. SETO will share insights from its stakeholder engagement efforts and provide an update on workforce activities and funding, including the newly announced $10 million Advancing Equity Through Workforce Partnerships funding opportunity. The webinar will also feature presentations from speakers across DOE.",
Farms are ecosystems, and it all comes down to the soil. These delicate ecosystems have so far demonstrated some resilience against growing commercial agricultural pressures, but the impact of climate change, bringing its increasingly severe weather, is testing that resilience. During this session we’ll hear about why biodiversity is such an essential part of our food system, and discuss how all of us, not only the agricultural community policymakers, can work to preserve it.",

Join Andy Revkin of the The Earth Institute and Columbia Climate School in a one-on-one conversation with U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, exploring lessons learned through this longtime lawmaker’s decade-plus push for climate action and his ideas for breaking legislative impasses built by Republican supporters of former President Donald J. Trump.

Whitehouse is best known outside of his home state (also, incidentally, Revkin's) for a nine-year unbroken string of weekly climate speeches - 279 in all - between 2012 and January of this year. (After he "dropped the mic," political veteran and commentator Paul Begala called Whitehouse the “Cal Ripken of climate.")

We’ll dig in on paths to real-world progress on clean energy and climate resilience as the planetary and political climates overheat.

Many local governments have set ambitious clean energy and climate goals. Distributed energy resources (DERs) - small-scale resources typically located on the distribution system, such as electric vehicles, energy storage, demand response, generators and more - will be a crucial part of meeting these goals. In 2020, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued Order No. 2222, which requires regional transmission organizations (RTOs) and independent system operators (ISOs) to open their markets to DER aggregations. While FERC and regional grid operators are currently in the process of finalizing region-specific market rules to comply with the order (which will determine the extent of the market opportunities for DERs), this development can remove barriers to DER participation in wholesale electricity markets and accentuate the benefits of DERs for local governments - ultimately allowing them to increase revenue and bring more clean power to their residents."

As pressure mounts for corporations to see both financial return and greenhouse gas emissions reductions with their transition to EV fleets, charging management software could be the answer. AMPLY Power and WattTime have partnered to help fleets to automatically charge when electricity generated GHG emissions and costs are lowest. Research from WattTime has shown that emissions-optimized charging can further reduce associated emissions nearly 20% annually and up to 90% on individual days. Webcast speakers will discuss: how to plan for peak renewable energy timeframes on the grid to reduce emissions, while charging at the lowest cost energy windows; a real-world customer success story who reduced costs and GHG emissions with managed charging; the top metro areas that benefit from energy and GHG co-optimized charging.

African Perspectives on Climate and Climate Politics -- Africa and Global Climate Diplomacy: Priorities, Lessons Learned, Pathways Forward

Africa is the continent that historically and contemporarily has contributed least to human-induced climatic changes yet it is in many ways already suffering some of global warming’s most devastating consequences. Despite this stark reality, African ideas about climate and perspectives on the political economy of mitigation and adaptation are rarely highlighted in global forums.

Through a new webinar series, the Center on Global Energy Policy seeks to foreground the heterogeneity of perspectives found around the continent on what climate means in different African contexts and how more than one billion Africans are already living with extraordinary climatological variability and constraints on the use of natural resources.

The first session of the series will bring together prominent voices from different parts of the continent to explore African priorities in global and regional climate diplomacy; to analyze the historical role played by African states in global discussions, from the Kyoto Protocol to the Paris Agreement; and to identify ways in which African bureaucratic, economic and political realities will intersect with international negotiations in the future.

This webinar will be hosted via Zoom. Advance registration is required. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with access details. The event will be recorded and the video recording will be added to our website following the event.

WRI - Chilling Effects: Cooling Solutions in Building Decarbonization
August 2 | 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
In a warming world, cooling is both a necessity and a threat. Nearly 12,000 people die annually due to heat-related complications and roughly 30% of people live in areas that are exposed to extended periods of life-threatening heat. These numbers will only increase as the effects of climate change continue. Cooling is also needed in our everyday lives to keep our food healthy, our medicines safe, and our economies productive. All of which makes access to cooling critical for an equitable future. At the same time, inefficient cooling is energy-intensive and polluting, leading to a cycle that only increases the need for more cooling and contributes to global temperature rise. Already accounting for 7% of carbon emissions and driving electricity demand as one of the top consumers, the cooling sector’s impact on emissions and power grids is set to at least double by 2050. Managing cooling in the building sector will play a key role in mitigating cooling impacts in the future. In this webinar, organized by WRI's Buildings Initiative as part of the Zero Carbon Building Accelerator project supported by GEF and UNEP, experts will share insights from super-efficient industrial and commercial space cooling. They will discuss designing cooling techniques for residential homes, nature-based solutions to keep our cities cooler overall, and tools for government planning for heat impacts."

The First Principle of Sustainability: Use Less!
August 9 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The recent IPCC report warns that all sectors need to accelerate permanent greenhouse gas reductions within decades - not half a century. Many institutions and enterprises have made net-zero commitments, although “net” usually means procurement of emissions RECs and offsets, at best an interim solution. This webinar will walk through a deep energy-efficiency program that is far more impactful, permanent, and affordable than emissions offsets. “Deep” efficiency sets the bar high at 50% reduction in energy use-intensity for both new and retrofitted buildings. This is not a theoretical model, but a program that has proven successful at the University of California, Irvine for more than two decades."

Overcoming Barriers to Deploying Direct Air Capture
August 11 | 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Direct Air Capture (DAC) has been identified as one of the few technologies that can remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere at climate-relevant scales. To have a meaningful impact on climate goals, DAC must be scaled quickly from the handful of small-scale pilots currently in operation to megaton-scale deployments. The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and United States Energy Association (USEA) are hosting a workshop to address several of the key issues associated with scaling DAC technologies. The workshop will be open to all and is intended to provide a discussion of some of the most relevant issues for those advancing DAC as a climate solution. Keynote addresses will feature Dr. Jen Wilcox, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management and Prof. Klaus Lackner, an early DAC pioneer. Other speakers will include representatives from leading DAC organizations including Carbon Engineering, Climeworks, Oxy Low-Carbon Ventures, and Stripe. Three major themes will be addressed: Energy, Technology, and Project Execution. The energy session will focus on the source and impact of the energy required to power DAC installations. The technology session will compare different technology options with inherent advantages and challenges for each DAC approach and their ability to reduce costs for deployment. The Project Execution session will focus on the requirements for large scale projects including hearing from project developers, investors, regulators, and lessons learned from carbon capture projects."

State Efforts to Advance a Clean Hydrogen Economy
August 11 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
As states look for innovative ways to advance long-term energy storage and decarbonize their transportation and industrial sectors, clean hydrogen is one key opportunity. There are a variety of new funding options available for hydrogen production through the Infrastructure, Investment, and Jobs Act (IIJA) and states are developing their own resources to streamline hydrogen production regionally - looking at permitting, land-use, energy justice, workforce, use-cases, and other key considerations. Oregon and New York are among the states that have started developing or have already developed hydrogen roadmaps to outline the key stakeholders, strategic vision, and potential challenges for advancing a robust hydrogen economy. This webinar will be an opportunity to hear from these states about how they plan to advance clean hydrogen production through different policy and regulatory structures"

Sustain What? Friday Columbia Climate News Review - Forever Chemicals

On Fridays, join Andy Revkin of the Columbia Climate School’s Initiative on Communication & Sustainability for a brisk review of the week’s hot climate and sustainability news and a look at brewing issues that hide behind sound bites and tweets.

This week one focus will be how to make sense of the risks posed by the group of persistent synthetic PFAS compounds. A much-covered new paper by European researchers has found that they exist in rainwater around the world in levels exceeding the U.S. EPA's new health advisory for drinking water.

Explore the paper here: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.est.2c02765

You'll meet an author of the paper, Martin Scheringer, a professor of environmental chemistry in ETH Zürich’s Safety and Environmental Technology Group, and Garret Ellison, who covers the environment for Michigan Live and has written extensively on the community end of the PFAS issue. https://www.mlive.com/user/gellison/posts.html

Reduced Biodiversity and its Impact on our Food
August 16 | 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Farms are ecosystems, and it all comes down to the soil. These delicate ecosystems have so far demonstrated some resilience against growing commercial agricultural pressures, but the impact of climate change, bringing its increasingly severe weather, is testing that resilience. During this session we’ll hear about why biodiversity is such an essential part of our food system, and discuss how all of us, not only the agricultural community policymakers, can work to preserve it.",

A Climate Chat with Senator Sheldon Whitehouse
August 17 | 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Join Andy Revkin of the The Earth Institute and Columbia Climate School in a one-on-one conversation with U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, exploring lessons learned through this longtime lawmaker’s decade-plus push for climate action and his ideas for breaking legislative impasses built by Republican supporters of former President Donald J. Trump.

Whitehouse is best known outside of his home state (also, incidentally, Revkin's) for a nine-year unbroken string of weekly climate speeches - 279 in all - between 2012 and January of this year. (After he "dropped the mic," political veteran and commentator Paul Begala called Whitehouse the “Cal Ripken of climate.")

We’ll dig in on paths to real-world progress on clean energy and climate resilience as the planetary and political climates overheat.

Watch here, or join live via Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn or Twitter (links here: http://j.mp/sustainwhatlive) or send questions in advance through this link: http://j.mp/revkinfeedback. No registration required.

How Local Governments Can Benefit from FERC Order No. 2222
August 18 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Many local governments have set ambitious clean energy and climate goals. Distributed energy resources (DERs) - small-scale resources typically located on the distribution system, such as electric vehicles, energy storage, demand response, generators and more - will be a crucial part of meeting these goals. In 2020, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued Order No. 2222, which requires regional transmission organizations (RTOs) and independent system operators (ISOs) to open their markets to DER aggregations. While FERC and regional grid operators are currently in the process of finalizing region-specific market rules to comply with the order (which will determine the extent of the market opportunities for DERs), this development can remove barriers to DER participation in wholesale electricity markets and accentuate the benefits of DERs for local governments - ultimately allowing them to increase revenue and bring more clean power to their residents."

Meet GHG Goals and Reduce Energy Costs with Managed Charging
August 30 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
As pressure mounts for corporations to see both financial return and greenhouse gas emissions reductions with their transition to EV fleets, charging management software could be the answer. AMPLY Power and WattTime have partnered to help fleets to automatically charge when electricity generated GHG emissions and costs are lowest. Research from WattTime has shown that emissions-optimized charging can further reduce associated emissions nearly 20% annually and up to 90% on individual days. Webcast speakers will discuss: how to plan for peak renewable energy timeframes on the grid to reduce emissions, while charging at the lowest cost energy windows; a real-world customer success story who reduced costs and GHG emissions with managed charging; the top metro areas that benefit from energy and GHG co-optimized charging.
