Sustainable Energy Science & Policy: Dan Kammen

7/26/2018; 6 minutes

Dan Kammen's Berkeley research group has revealed the need for a dramatic shift to electricity and away from both fossil and biofuels. Meanwhile, 1.3 billion people – 15 percent of the world population – still lack electricity, and their growing demand for it would raise – not lower – global temperatures. The solution, Kammen says, must be local. He sees great promise in efforts to bring together new technologies with best practices to electrify those who don't have power and to "green it" for everybody else. (#33072)
