The Stanford Energy Seminar: "Simulating Global Climate, Energy, and Land Futures" Andrew P. Jones

Sponsored by

Event Details:

Join this special interactive seminar to explore global scenarios for addressing climate change. From clean energy and EVs, to planting trees and carbon removal technologies, we’ll dive into the climate and equity impacts of different climate solution pathways using the En-ROADS global climate simulator. Our speaker, Andrew Jones, developed En-ROADS with his team at Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan, and uses the tool with top decision-makers worldwide to shape climate policy and investments. 

Speaker bio: Andrew Jones is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Climate Interactive and a Research Affiliate at MIT Sloan. He is an expert on international climate and energy policy, a system dynamics modeler, a speaker, and a creator of policy simulations.

He led the teams at Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan that developed En-ROADS and C-ROADS, two climate simulators used widely to engage global decision-makers. His climate policy work has appeared in media outlets such as The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Jones was trained in modeling through degrees from MIT and Dartmouth College. He now teaches systems thinking and climate policy at MIT Sloan, Stanford, and UNC-Chapel Hill.

He co-accepted the ASysT Applied Systems Thinking Prize and the System Dynamics Society’s Applications Award as well as Dartmouth College’s Ray W. Smith Award for the most significant contribution to the status of the college.

 

More about the seminar:

The Energy Stanford Seminar has been a mainstay of energy engagement at Stanford for nearly 20 years and is one of the flagship programs of the Precourt Institute for Energy. We aim to bring a wide variety of perspectives to the Stanford community – academics, entrepreneurs, utilities, big businesses, and more. We're proud to have hosted some of the biggest names in the energy world as well as those just starting out. 

Seminars take place most Mondays during the academic year and typically have an audience of 100+ attendees. Anyone with an interest in energy is welcome to join one seminar or all of them! You can enjoy seminars in the following ways:
