Attend two Global Futures Special Seminars, April 24 & 25

Posted by on Apr 23, 2019 in Announcements | 0 comments

ASU will host a special guest invited by President Crow, Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute Cofounder and Chief Scientist on April 24–25. During his visit, Lovins will give two Global Futures Special Seminars on energy.

Refreshments will be served at both lectures.

Disruptive Energy Futures
Wednesday, April 24, 2019
2–3 p.m.
Biodesign B105, Tempe campus [map]

Oil suppliers have more unsellable than unburnable oil; they are more at risk from competition than from climate regulation. Electricity suppliers too face a swarm of disruptors that will transform their business beyond recognition. As these two vast industries merge and as insurgents in both challenge incumbents, almost everything we thought we knew about energy is ripe for rapid and profound change.

Integrative Design for Radical Energy Efficiency
Thursday, April 25, 2019
8:30–9:30 a.m.
Biodesign B105, Tempe campus [map]

Energy efficiency is traditionally viewed as a pile of separate technologies to be added in order of increasing cost. Yet designing buildings, vehicles, and factories instead as whole systems can save several-fold more energy at several-fold lower cost. Examples spanning all sectors and virtually all applications even show that such “integrative design” can often make savings cost less as their quantity grows. Countries still building much of their infrastructure can more easily build it right than fix it later, so integrative design offers an extraordinary opportunity to stretch capital budgets by leveraging enormous supply-side savings.
