Rob Best, Andrew Ponec and Tim Burke in the studio.
Tim Burke, Andrew Ponec, and Rob Best are guests. For our season finale we invited back three of our favorite panelists from the Stanford community, Tim Burke (Engineers for a Sustainable World), Andrew Ponec (Stanford Grid Alternatives), and Rob Best (Solar Decathlon) for a roundtable discussion on some of the topics we’ve covered throughout the fall. We played segments from previous shows and talked about everything from the recent UNFCCC Conference of Parties 18 in Doha last week to solar technology markets to the integration of variable renewable resources onto the electricity grid.
The show was presented by Adam Pearson and Erik Olesund.
Dr. Philip Duffy, senior scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, is our guest this week. He led us on a discussion of how climate change events can shift renewable energy policies, what kind of climate change adaptation techniques make sense financially, and what Superstorm Sandy means to the environmental movement in this country. Certainly a timely interview.
Andrew Ponec, an undergraduate student leader of Grid Alternatives at Stanford University speaks about their efforts to install solar power on resident buildings in the bay area as our new segment “Energy on the Farm” premiers.
Presented by Adam Pearson, Sophia Vo, Kara Fong and Erik Olesund.
In the upcoming episode of Green Grid Radio we are joined by Dr. Phil Duffy of Lawrence Livermore National Labs. He speaks about the increased interest in climate change adaptation and mitigation after super storm Sandy and various political initiatives to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases such as the Clean Air Act and more recently the Climate And Clear Air Coalition launched by Hilary Clinton in February 2012.
Dr. Philip Duffy is a Senior Scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Most recently, he was Senior Policy Analyst at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Prior to his time in Washington, Duffy worked as Chief Scientist at Climate Central, Adjunct Associate Professor at UC Merced. He has also been Director at the University of California Institute for Research on Climate Change and its Societal Impacts and a Visiting Scholar at the Carnegie Institute for Science. He has published dozens of peer-reviewed papers on many components of climate science, atomic physics, water variability, and biodiversity. Dr. Duffy contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC’s work was recognized with the part of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. He has a bachelor’s degree from Harvard and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford.
Tune in on Tuesday December 4, 1-2PM PST at 90.1FM or at kzsulive.stanford.edu. The episode will be made available here at greengridradio.org or via our iTunes podcast shortly after the airing.
