Barry Hughes to speak at Sandia National Laboratories


On March 18 and 19, Barry Hughes will travel to New Mexico to deliver a pair of lectures, titled “Alternative Futures for Energy Production and Consumption in the US and the World.” His presentations—the first at the University of New Mexico, and the second at Sandia National Laboratories—will focus on the results of simulations on alternative energy futures, a collaboration between the Frederick S. Pardee Center and the Sandia National Labs Sustainability Innovation Foundry. These simulations assess the environmental and economic consequences of future extraction and combustion of projected fossil fuel reserves, as well as the impact renewables might have on altering those consequences.
