Lee Schipper / UC Berkeley

Knowlton Hall Center Space
February 9, 2011 - 12:30pm
Lee Schipper is Project Scientist with Global Metropolitan Studies at UC Berkeley.  He is also an affiliate of the Energy and Resources Group at UC. He is Senior Research Engineer at the Precourt Institute of Energy Efficiency at Stanford University, where he is also an affiliate of the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources.  He is a co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for participating in two IPCC rounds.

Dr. Schipper has authored over 100 technical papers and a number of books on energy economics, environment, and transportation around the world.  Recent work has focused on analyzing trends in real fuel economy and car use in the US and other IEA countries. He has also addressed urban transport trends and CO2 emissions in Latin America and three Asian countries: Viet Nam, India and China.

Dr. Schipper brings a unique twist to the transport and energy worlds, having obtained his BA in Music from Berkeley in 1968 (with course work at UCLA).  He still leads “The Carbon Jazz Mitigators”, who appeared in Copenhagen at pre-events for COP 15 and “Better Air Quality 2010” in Singapore.

All lectures are free and open to the public.
This lecture will take place in the Knowlton Hall Center Space at 5:30 PM.
