About Climate Solutions Series

Climate Solutions Series brings together a wide range of audiences to examine ways to reach net-zero GHG emissions in different sectors of the economy. This series of six public events opened with a discussion of emissions pathways; the following five events will focus on power, transportation, industry, and buildings, and conclude with carbon dioxide removal technologies that cut across multiple economic sectors.

The CSIS Energy Program will release analysis examining the path to decarbonization of each sector following each session.

Climate Solutions Series is made possible by support from JPMorgan Chase & Co.
