Mark Z. Jacobson: Wind, Water and Solar Power, Roadmaps to a New Energy Future
Mark Z. Jacobson, is Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at
Stanford University. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Woods Institute for the Environment and of the Precourt Institute for Energy. He received a B.S. in Civil Engineering, an A.B. in Economics, and an M.S. in Environmental Engineering from Stanford in 1988. He received an M.S. and PhD in Atmospheric Sciences in 1991 and 1994, respectively, from UCLA and joined the faculty at Stanford in 1994. He develops and applies computer models to understand air pollution, global warming, and renewable energy resources. He has published two textbooks of two editions each and 140 peer reviewed journal articles.
Mark received the 2005 American Meteorological Society Henry G. Houghton Award and the 2013 American Geophysical Union Ascent Award for his work on black carbon climate impacts and the Global Green Policy Design Award for developing state and country energy plans. He has served on an advisory committee to the U.S. Secretary of Energy, appeared in a TED talk, appeared on the David Letterman Show to discuss converting the world to clean energy, and co-founded The Solutions Project.
Global warming, air pollution and energy insecurity are three of the most significant problems facing the world today. Sustainability advocate Mark Jacobson tackles all three with a plan for converting the 50 United States and 139 countries to energy infrastructures powered 100% by wind, water and sunlight (WWS). Learn about the technical and economic development
policies that could empower WWS to fully support electricity, transportation, industry and heating/cooling by the year 2050.
