U-M has a stated goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2025.

The question is: How?

Michael R. Moore, Professor of Environmental Economics, and Samuel Stolper, Assistant Professor and Environmental and Energy Economist, assess the cost of several possible emission-reduction projects to demonstrate several principles.

  • Abatement costs vary substantially; some projects are quite expensive, others are quite cheap.
  • Scale matters; large-scale renewable projects are much cheaper than small-scale projects like rooftop solar.
  • Location matters; solar projects in the southern United States are much cheaper than those in the north.

Professor Michael R. Moore and Assistant Professor Samuel Stolper make recommendations on how the university can cost-effectively set an ambitious time path for achieving carbon neutrality within the next five years.

This event is free and open to the public - please RSVP below. Bring your own brown bag lunch.
