The Rutgers Energy Institute is engaged in four principal areas of activity: education of undergraduate and graduate students; pioneering research; outreach to the community to share information and engage the public; and policy advice to government, business, and civic leaders who require current knowledge about energy use, alternatives, and innovations to guide decision-making and public planning.
Each of these four areas is critical to the overall mission of the institute: to foster both fundamental and applied scientific research and policy research to develop sustainable energy production compatible with economic growth and environmental vitality.
Twelfth Annual REI Energy Symposium - May 3, 2017
Rutgers Energy Institute Annual Symposium - May 3, 2017
The annual energy symposia by the Rutgers Energy Institute (REI) provide faculty, students, staff, government officials, and community members with the opportunity to learn about the new methods, processes, and initiatives being developed by energy thinkers at Rutgers, in New Jersey, and across the country. This year's theme is Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Low-Carbon Technology.
- Sally Benson (Director, Global Climate and Energy Project and Co-Director, Precourt Institute for Energy, Stanford University) will speak on "Prospects for CO2 Capture, Storage, Utilization, and Negative Emissions"
- Daniel Kammen (Distinguished Professor, Energy and Resources Group, University of California, Berkeley) will speak on "The Transition to Sustainable Energy in an Era of Upheaval"
- Klaus Lackner (Director, The Center for Negative Carbon Emissions, Arizona State University) will speak on "Direct Air Capture as a Tool for Carbon Management"
- Kenneth G. Miller (Distinguished Professor, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Rutgers University) will speak on "Geology (and policy) Matters: The Case for Carbon Storage on the U.S. Mid-Atlantic Margin"
