A free summit focused on regional energy innovation.
The California Energy Research Center (CERC) at California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB), Climate Now, and the Livermore Lab Foundation are proud to announce the return of the Carbon Management Technical Symposium, to be held on April 21, 2023.
Engage with the community, industry, policymakers, and academia in a technical discussion on the topic of carbon management. The purpose of this returning symposium is to increase awareness of the opportunities, benefits, and challenges of carbon management.
Designed to foster both learning and conversation, this symposium will allow stakeholders and experts to engage in a scientific discussion on the current state of carbon management technology, and how we can collectively support increased use of carbon capture and storage to benefit the region. Event audiences will include academia, research institutions, technology organizations, government agencies, environmental organizations, nonprofit organizations, agriculture organizations, local businesses and workforce, and the extended community.
CERC expands the capabilities of CSUB faculty, research scientists, post-doctoral researchers, and students to conduct research on sustainable and affordable energy production and its impacts in the region, the state of California and beyond. CERC convenes energy experts in interdisciplinary teams to conduct research relevant to oil, water, wind, solar, and biofuel in Kern County. Additionally, CERC provides information to the community about energy and water issues in the Central Valley.
Climate Now is a multimedia resource on the science and economics of climate change, covering the key scientific theories underpinning our understanding of how and why the climate is changing, clean energy technologies, important research, and policies relevant to the climate crisis and the energy transition. Our mission is to provide policy makers, business leaders, investors, and journalists with the scientific and economic context necessary to make good decisions about policy formulation, capital allocation, and narrative focus. Climate Now will produce a dedicated podcast episode featuring the discussions that take place at this symposium. Sponsors will be spotlighted on the Climate Now podcast. Climate Now is made possible, in part, by science partners like the Livermore Lab Foundation.
Founded in 1952, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is a Department of Energy multi-disciplinary science and research facility providing solutions to our nation’s most important national security challenges The Lab's Carbon Initiative focuses on innovations and opportunities in climate resiliency and carbon management. In 2020, LLNL's seminal report, Getting to Neutral, set the stage for how California might reach carbon neutrality by 2045. The Livermore Lab Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, supports the Lab's fundamental science and research by serving as the primary philanthropic partner - with a strong focus on community partnerships, outreach and educational programs.
