After a historic battle for the White House, Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States on January 20 with unprecedented challenges to tackle in his first days in office. In this discussion, our panel will take a look at his first month as America's most senior head of state and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces - the policies proposed, the challenges faced, and the opportunities on the horizon.
Ambassador Virginia E. Palmer, Acting Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Energy Resources at the U.S. Department of State, will join Duke University Energy Initiative Director Dr. Brian Murray for a virtual fireside chat on Feb. 2.
**This event is for current Duke students only**
Duke students are invited to join a Virtual Power Lunch featuring Ben Catt, CEO of Pine Gate Renewables. Event capacity will be limited so that all attendees have the chance to introduce themselves, ask questions, and exchange ideas, just like at an in-person Power Lunch. Advance registration required. Attendees will be able to access the meeting information in the "Digital Links" section of Eventbrite after registration is complete.

Advances in machine learning (ML) are making a large impact in many disciplines, including materials and computational chemistry. A particularly exciting application of ML is the prediction of quantum mechanical (QM) properties (e.g., formation energy, bandgap, etc.) using only the composition or structure as input. Assuming sufficient accuracies in the ML models, these methods enable screening of a considerably large chemical space at orders of magnitude lower computational cost than QM methods.
The Consulate General of France in Atlanta and the Office for Science and Technology are hosting a webinar on Tuesday, December 8, 2020, at 10 a.m. (EST), for the 5th anniversary of the Paris Climate Agreement. Featured speakers include Duke University Energy Initiative director and professor Dr. Brian Murray and Georgia Tech professor Dr. Kim Cobb.
The remarks will be followed by Q&A sessions to give participants the opportunity to interact with the speakers.
The 2021 Undergraduate Summer Opportunities List will be available starting January 12, 2021. Students will be able to browse opportunities and view contact information for Duke Summer Programs. This list represents dozens of summer programs, projects, research and more. Many opportunities provide full or partial funding. Some opportunities are fully virtual. You can find the listing at: https://undergrad.duke.edu/summer-opportunities-fair

How can machine learning and data science tools improve our understanding of energy systems and manage them to be more accessible, affordable, reliable, and clean? This single-track symposium will explore cutting-edge approaches addressing this question, highlighting the work of established experts as well as emerging scholars in the field.
In particular, the symposium will examine how data science and machine learning are driving innovation in areas including:
Join us for the 12th Annual Duke University Energy Conference on Wednesday, Nov. 11 featuring virtual keynote presentations, moderated discussions, and networking sessions with industry experts. This free online event series will focus on the 2020 theme of "Upheaval and Resilience."
Untenured, tenure-track professors contemplating submitting a DOE Early Career Research Program proposal are invited to attend this workshop. We will discuss application components and characteristics of a successful proposal to this program.
Come explore the emerging technologies, creative business models, and new ideas that are propagating the energy space. At the Energy Innovation Showcase, innovative start-ups, incubators, researchers, and investors share their experience and technologies with you in this virtual showcase. Peruse participating organizations' video intros (coming soon) beforehand, and we'll kick off the evening with opening remarks from GRID Alternatives then move into a virtual room** where you can visit organizations' tables to ask questions and learn more.
