Beyond Fossil Fuels

An Interview with Dan Kammen

Ever heard of California’s “Low Carbon Fuel Standard”? UC Berkeley prof Dan Kammen co-wrote it. What about the terms “cap and trade” and “carbon offsets”? Kammen helped popularize these concepts for the American public and transform the way we view energy consumption.

As director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Lab at the University of California, Berkeley — where he also holds appointments in the Environmental Resources Group and the Department of Nuclear Engineering — Kammen integrates scientific, policy and business research,  then translates his research into action. He has served as Chief Technical Advisor – popularly known as the “Energy Czar” – to the World Bank and published innumerable books and academic articles.
