The Role of Engineering in Addressing Climate Change
As outlined in the recent White House priorities memo for the FY2023 Budget, “the United States and the world face a profound climate crisis with a narrow moment to pursue action to avoid the most catastrophic impacts and to seize the opportunities that tackling climate change presents.” Unsurprisingly, respondents to ERVA’s initial survey of the engineering community identified combating climate change: disaster resilient infrastructure and carbon neutrality: alternative fuels, energy storage, and enhanced carbon management as the highest priority themes for ERVA to explore. The goal of this inaugural visioning event will be to identify less-explored, basic and use-inspired research lines within this broad theme that are ripe for multi-disciplinary contributions from the engineering research community. Events in early 2022 will delve deeper into identified areas.
