About the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Colorado School of Mines (CSM)

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) (www.nrel.gov), has a rich history of renewable energy and energy efficiency research and innovation that spans decades. NREL’s mission is to advance the science and engineering of energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and renewable power technologies and provide the knowledge to integrate and optimize energy systems.

The Colorado School of Mines (CSM) (www.mines.edu) and its Payne Institute for Public Policy (www.payneinstitute.mines.edu) harnesses expertise from global faculty experts and students to develop high-quality, data-driven, solutions-oriented research and dialogue needed to inform energy and environmental policy. CSM and NREL collectively offer over 1000 dedicated research staff focused on a wide range of energy topics, including power systems transformation, energy systems integration, distribution and storage of energy, sustainable technology advancements in all sectors, clean energy policy, geopolitics of energy, energy justice and equity, and state-of-the-art modelling to bring new insights to these topics. The two research institutions are located within a few kilometres of each other at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, in Colorado, USA. The conference will be held on the CSM campus located in the heart of Golden, at the outskirts of Denver.

Call for Papers – The deadline for paper submission is February 1st, 2023

Researchers and practitioners from countries around the world are invited to submit original papers with new and innovative results on scientific, technical and practical experience on the economics of energy and climate systems. As is customary for the IEW, papers should be quantitative and rigorous.

A (non-exclusive) list of potential conference topics is:

• Reaching net-zero emissions:modelling the clean energy transition; sectoral and economy-wide modelling and analysis of transition pathways for demand and supply sectors
• Multisectoral net zero carbon analyses: modelling and analysis that provides critical new insights to the intersection between and among energy sectors such as power, fuels, chemical, mobility
• Managing power system transitions: addressing flexibility and system aspects for the integration of variable renewables and electrified end-uses; market design; integrated modelling looking at future energy systems and dealing with short-term issues
• Clean energy infrastructure: supporting infrastructure to enable decarbonization, including electrical transmission, EV charging, hydrogen distribution and dispensing, manufacturing and supply chains transformations
• Technology insights: role of technologies in the energy transitions (e.g. CCUS and negative emission technologies, hydrogen, nuclear, energy efficiency, synthetic fuels)
• Energy access and transition for communities and cities: assessing sustainability development in urban and rural communities in developing and developed countries
• Energy security: efforts to make climate change mitigation compatible with increasing domestic and regional energy independence (e.g. in response to recent geopolitical developments)
• Socioeconomic analysis of the energy transition: employment, skills, health, investments, consumer bills, social acceptance and resistance, integrating behaviour in energy models such as sufficiency
• Circular economy: supply chains, materials extraction, recycling/reuse of critical materials
• Climate and energy systems: bridging the gap between climate and energy modelling, and reflecting extreme events for resilient clean energy systems

Selected papers will be presented and discussed in thematic sessions, circulated during the meeting, and also posted on the meeting website.

Submission of papers/long abstracts
Full papers or long abstracts (minimum 1000 words) in .pdf format had to be submitted online at this link no later than February 1st, 202

Please note that paper selection has become increasingly competitive in recent years. Submissions that fully describe a complete analysis are generally more likely to be accepted than long abstracts. In particular, when submitting a long abstract, please ensure that the study and results are sufficiently described to allow comparison with full paper submissions. Each person can present only one selected paper, although multiple submissions and co-authorship are allowed.

Please kindly complete one online form for each paper.

Abstracts and presentations submitted by the authors will be available online after the event. Authors will have the options to opt out and choose not to publish the abstracts or presentations at the conference website.

Please join the Houston Strategy Forum and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Brad Handler, Payne Institute Sustainable Finance Lab Program Manager, presenting at the 2022 Carbon Symposium on Thursday, December 8, 2022 from 7:30am – 2:30pm (MT).

Symposium Context

The world is facing both a climate crisis and an energy crisis. There is an acute energy shortage in certain regions, while the overall demand for energy rises year over year. The vagaries of weather are becoming more severe from devastating floods to heat waves and winter storms.

We need to “Think Big,” “Think Fast,” and “Execute Fast.” This is not just about a 2050 goal. It is about the rapid progress to 2050.

To avert a climate crisis, the whole ecosystem from energy producers and energy transporters to energy consumers must decarbonize. We must all come together and work together. The current slate of planned projects barely scratches the surface in reducing the 36 billion tonnes of CO2 the world emits each year.

We need innovation and execution at a level equivalent to what was required to land a man on the Moon.

Symposium Theme

The December symposium follows the Houston Strategy Forum’s successful May Carbon Symposium. Two items bubbled up during the discussions in May — Partnerships and Accelerating the Carbon Movement.

We have chosen “Accelerating Decarbonization” as the theme for the December Symposium.

How do we dramatically accelerate the pace and scale of CO2 and Hydrogen projects? How do we transform the industrial, manufacturing, power, transportation, and other ecosystems which are the biggest consumers of energy? What are the challenges and roadblocks, and the opportunities and lowest hanging fruit? What are the risks of over-acceleration?

How does the Inflation Reduction Act help accelerate decarbonization? Is it sufficient or will it require much more?

We are looking forward to a powerful discussion with:

Presentation Notes

Please join Jeffries and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Brad Handler, Payne Institute Sustainable Finance Lab Program Manager, presenting a virtual seminar titled The Financial Mechanisms Around Coal Retirement on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 from 9:00am – 10:00am (MT).

Coal fired power plants (CFPPs) are the single largest source of global greenhouse gas emissions comprising ~20% of the world’s total. The decarbonization imperative has motivated various initiatives anchored by financial mechanisms to accelerate the retirement of existing CFPPs, ranging from single plant solutions to country-wide energy transformation. Join us on Tuesday, November 8th at 11AM ET, for a discussion with Brad Handler, Researcher and Program Lead for the Sustainable Finance Lab at the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines, to discuss some of these initiatives, including analysis underway at the Payne Institute, and the associated capital requirements with conversion to renewable energy.

Key Topics:
• Landscape of financial mechanisms to accelerate the retirement of existing CFPPs
• Payne Institute analysis
• Associated capital requirements with conversion to renewable energy
• Where does this all go next?

Brad Handler is the founder and Program Manager of the Sustainable Finance Lab at the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines. The Sustainable Finance Lab seeks to educate policy makers and help develop financial mechanisms to spur more private institutional funds toward the Energy Transition. Brad previously spent two decades as an Equity Research Analyst on Wall Street, at firms including Wells Fargo, Credit Suisse and Jefferies.
