UC Berkeley and the Berkeley Lab have comprehensive and cutting-edge research programs in energy and climate research. The Berkeley Energy and Climate Lectures bring these innovative research programs to the classroom. Team-taught by world-class faculty and researchers the Lectures provide insights and inspiration to graduate and undergraduate students across the disciplines. How can we help mitigate alarmingly high CO2 levels in the atmosphere? Will biofuels replace fossil fuels in the near future? Why don’t we have more energy-efficient batteries? What are the key policy challenges to implementing technological innovations that could reduce energy consumption world-wide? Are there specific adapation strategies we should contemplate in the face of climate change?
