Upcoming Events & Seminars

Cement 600x440

Thursday, August 26 from 11am to 12pm PST

As California and the nation push towards reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, cement production has emerged as an area of critical importance. Reducing GHG emissions from cement production is complex due to the ways that cement is produced, and the need for cement to support critical civil infrastructure systems over lifespans measured in decades. At UC Davis, there is ongoing research examining technology and policy drivers to mitigate these GHG emissions while maintaining performance.

In this special webinar, UC Davis faculty will discuss recent developments in sustainable cement, including critical technologies, performance considerations, policy structures, and the importance of stakeholder coordination. A panel of experts in the field will provide feedback and context. There will be time for discussion and Q&As so please bring your experiences and questions to share.

Thursday, June 17th from 11am to 12pm PST

The Big Shift is a transformative infrastructure project taking place on the UC Davis campus where building heating systems are being converted from steam heat that is generated by natural gas to hot water that is generated by electricity. The Big Shift will help the university achieve its goal of becoming carbon neutral by reducing reliance on fossil fuel.

In this special GEM webinar, UC Davis staff and partners will candidly discuss the project to date and lessons learned, including critical design considerations and the importance of stakeholder coordination. There will be plenty of time for discussion and Q&As so please bring your experiences and questions to share.
