Professor of the Practice in the markets, public policy, and law department and director of the Institute for Sustainable Energy Peter Fox-Penner has just released a new book titled Power after Carbon: Building a Clean, Resilient Grid. The book, published by Harvard University Press, offers a roadmap to the electric power industry’s future as it faces the challenges of climate change, technological disruption, new market imperatives, and changing policies. Released on May 19, 2020, Power after Carbon has already garnered praise from energy and climate experts nationwide.
“Power after Carbon calls to attention the dramatic changes in the electric power sector over the last decade,” says former US Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. “Fox-Penner leads us on a serious exploration of the various technologies, fuels, and system designs that transcend easy fixes to today’s challenges and opportunities: the drive for net-zero carbon emissions; the rise of wind and solar; and the emphasis on both reliability and resilience.”
“Peter Fox-Penner is among the world’s most respected and admired electricity experts―deeply informed, astute, and wise,” says Amory B. Lovins, Cofounder and Chairman Emeritus of the Rocky Mountain Institute. “This clear and engaging distillation of his insights will enlighten and stimulate readers in all sectors and at all levels.”
