On Sept. 12, the Lab hosted a tour for government representatives, policymakers, and nonprofit organizations attending this week’s Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. They attended presentations on using high-performance computing and next-generation climate models to guide informed regional planning; on tools to help governments quantify the role of natural and working lands in sequestering carbon; on biomanufacturing resources such as the Agile BioFoundry and ABPDU to enable commercial production of domestic low-carbon bioproducts; and on applications that support building- and transportation-sector energy efficiency. Berkeley Lab researchers presented at 14 other events affiliated with the summit.
