What is the outlook for the U.S. energy industry and energy policy in the Trump Administration? Join senior George W. Bush Administration officials James L. Connaughton and Jeffrey R. Holmstead for a special conversation on what to expect in the coming years.
Join EPIC as they host esteemed nuclear expert and former Chief Scientist and Director at Argonne National Lab, Bob Rosner.
In 2015, the 160 campus buildings and grounds used $40 million worth of energy. Come to the Nov. 17th hackathon to see where and why. Help improve our understanding of campus energy usage and increase energy efficiency!
The Department of Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago will be hosting Dr. Bjorn Stevens of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology at the University of Hamburg.
A recent wave of research has demonstrated the existence of generic Early Warning Signals (EWS’s), in which William "Buz" Brock of RDCEP will give an overview - specifically of what classes of abrupt changes might be predicted (or not predicted) by EWS’s, and at what scales one should have hope of finding these signals.
Join EPIC for their Lunch Speaker Series featuring Sam Ori, the Executive Director at the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC).
The Department of Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago will be hosting Bob Houze, a Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington.
The next president will steer us on a path towards how we confront climate change, get and use energy, and protect ourselves from environmental harms for decades to come.
The Summer Institute on Sustainability and Energy (SISE) is a two-week intensive workshop and lecture series for students and professionals. Applications are being accepted from now through July 1, 2016. Apply today!
Rossbypalooza is a week-long workshop bringing together graduate students and postdocs from climate science and statistics. The workshop is part lecture series, part hackathon, with students working in small, interdisciplinary teams on a research problem of their choosing. Topics to be covered include monsoons, El Niño, temperature and precipitation extremes, heat waves, spatial-temporal processes, and extreme value analysis.
At a workshop aimed at researchers, students, private and public sector professionals active in energy affairs, hear from the experts at the Physics of Sustainable Energy (PSE-‐IV), being held this year in the Midwest region at the University of Chicago.
An event co-sponsored by the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC), Chicago Innovation Exchange, Argonne National Laboratory, Institute for Molecular Engineering and Clean Energy Trust. Hear from the innovators from Argonne National Lab, who are helping to bring emerging technologies from the lab to the marketplace, through a series of TED-style talks that will present a glimpse into our energy future.
Come out and compete at the Campus as a Lab Spring Hack-a-thon. Participants will select from a series of challenges and compete to identify features in campus energy data or propose new designs for tools that could be developed to improve our understanding of campus energy usage. Reserve your spot today!
New computational resources and tools offer researchers from all fields innovative, faster, and more efficient paths to discovery. Visit the Computation Institute and see demos of software for data management and publication, urban science, climate research, parallel computing, genomics, virtual reality physics, and more.
For this week in Foster Children, our featured speaker will be RDCEP researcher Hailiang Du. He will be presenting "Insight of Chaos: Predictability and Randomness."
Our Foster Children speaker was RDCEP's own Lenny Smith. Smith serves as the Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Time Series (CATS) at the London School of Economics. Smith received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida and PhD in Physics from Columbia University.
RDCEP Graduate Student Andrew Poppick presents and gives an oral defense of his PhD dissertation "Statistical Methods for Climatic Processes with Temporal Non-Stationarity".
Join The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business for Energy Forward 2016, a conference examining the trends and opportunities that are defining the energy markets this year and beyond.
