Panelists at this event:
Severin Borenstein is Faculty Director at the Energy Institute of the Haas School of Business. Dr. Borenstein has deep expertise in the public and private economics of renewables electricity generation - including how market forces can encourage an impactful response to climate change. Dr. Borenstein has observed that “working on the economics of energy and climate change, wince-inducing statements of “fact” are everywhere.” He was the winner of the International Association for Energy Economics, Outstanding Contributions to the Profession Award, and holds a Ph.D. in Economics from MIT.
Steve Bennett founded Riskpulse to link climate-risk modeling to the logistics of shipping temperature-sensitive products such as beer and mayonnaise across the country. In the mid-90s, Steve was a meteorologist and broadcaster for WOR Radio in New York City where he produced a special report that was highly-skeptical of climate change. His career moved to The Weather Channel and then to Enron where he helped to forecast the price of natural gas. Following Enron’s implosion, Steve developed analytics to support natural gas, electricity, and reinsurance investment strategies at Citadel Investment Group. Steve then moved to Scripps Institution of Oceanography/UC San Diego where the realities of climate-science brought a dramatic transformation from his work with WOR 15-years earlier.
