What role do alternative fuel vehicles play in the future of the global energy system?

Baker Center Fellow David McCollum will answer that question at UT’s Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy’s first Energy and Environmental Forum of the year, during a talk titled “Alternative Fuel Vehicles and the Future of the Global Energy System.” 

The forum is from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, January 12, in the Baker Center’s Toyota Auditorium. It is free and open to the public.

McCollum, who is also a research scholar with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis Energy Program, will discuss his research on advanced energy and transport technologies and the development and application of energy-economic and integrated assessment models.

His research informs national, regional, and global energy and environmental policies on matters related to climate change, sustainable transport, energy security, and air pollution.

McCollum is originally from Knoxville but will be visiting from Laxenburg, Austria.
