The future of low-carbon energy in the United States

28 July 2017

ANU has hosted a public lecture by US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Director Dr Martin Keller.

Dr Keller discussed recent advances in renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies in the US, and NREL's role in helping to decarbonise energy systems to achieve global climate targets.

He discussed recent scientific discoveries in solar, wind, bioenergy and hydrogen power, as well as energy-efficiency improvements in buildings and transport.

Dr Keller also addressed the global imperative of continued investment in clean energy research.

Originally from Germany, Dr Keller received his PhD in microbiology from the University of Regensburg, Germany. 

Before becoming Director of NREL in November 2015, Dr Keller held a number of key appointments both in industry and in government research laboratories.
