COLLOQUIUM: Daniel Sanchez

Sanchez_Dan 2015 SPEAKER: Daniel Sanchez PhD Candidate Energy and Resource Group – UC Berkeley DATE: Wednesday, November 18, 2015 TIME: 4:00 P.M. PLACE: 126 Barrows Hall TITLE: Carbon-negative Energy Systems DESCRIPTION: Climate change mitigation requires gigawatt-scale deployment of low-carbon energy technologies, including carbon-negative technologies like bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) to reduce atmospheric CO2 concentrations. There are few deployments of BECCS outside of niche markets, creating uncertainty about commercialization pathways and sustainability at scale. Here, I present results on the deployment, design, and commercialization of BECCS in the United States. This work informs the engineering, public policy, and industrial development necessary for deep decarbonization globally. Daniel L. Sanchez is a Ph.D. can­di­date in the Energy and Resources Group and a researcher in the Renew­able and Appro­pri­ate Energy Lab­o­ra­tory at the Uni­ver­sity of California-Berkeley. He is inter­ested in quan­ti­ta­tive analy­sis to inform pub­lic pol­icy, focus­ing on bioen­ergy and cli­mate pol­icy. Daniel has pre­vi­ously held positions with the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), Green for All, and the Cal­i­for­nia Pub­lic Util­i­ties Com­mis­sion. He holds an M.S. in Energy and Resources and a B.S.E. in Chem­i­cal and Bio­mol­e­c­u­lar Engi­neer­ing from the Uni­ver­sity of Pennsylvania
