GCEP Research Symposium 2007
Research Pathways to Low GHG-Emitting Energy Systems

October 1 - 3, 2007
Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center
Stanford University
GCEP held its third energy research symposium featuring well-known speakers and leading researchers from Stanford and around the world. The three-day event was intended to provide a forum for the discussion of scientific results and developments that may lead to energy technologies with significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

The symposium opened with a keynote address given by Dr. R.K. Pachauri, Chief Executive of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The first day of the conference included general sessions in which representatives from key segments of the energy sector provided their perspectives of the path forward for energy research. Technical experts in a broad set of energy areas also gave an overview of the research progress made and the opportunities that lie ahead.

Technical sessions on the second and third days of the meeting included presentations by GCEP investigators highlighting the results of their innovative research, and poster sessions to allow all GCEP investigators and their graduate students to provide details of their work.

An outline of the agenda is given below:

Monday, October 1: - General Sessions
Morning: Timeframes and Pathways for Energy Research
Afternoon: Progress and Opportunities in Energy Research

Tuesday, October 2: - Technical/Poster Sessions

Morning: Solar Energy
Afternoon: Bioenergy Storage and Conversion

Wednesday, October 3: - Technical/Poster Sessions
