    This fall, MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) and Energy Initiative (MITEI) will continue the energy innovation webinar series focused on the energy transition. The series will further engage leading researchers from across MIT and industry executives on topics including power markets, low-carbon fuels, decarbonization of buildings and industry, and other sectors. Industrial collaboration has long been a hallmark of MIT’s approach to problem solving. Please join us to hear what we are doing together with our industrial partners to address the climate change challenges. 

    In this webinar, Paul Joskow, a professor of economics, Johannes Pfeifenberger, a visiting scholar, and Cheryl Lafleur, a former FERC member, reflect on the recent large-scale power outages in California; the combined risks from natural disasters, such as forest fires; and the growing supply intermittency associated with increasing solar and wind generation. Robert Stoner, the deputy director for science and technology at MITEI, will moderate and lead an audience Q&A.
