Last month, CIEE Electric Grid Director Dr. Alexandra “Sascha” von Meier participated in the 2022 Diversity in Tech Symposium (formerly the Women in Tech Symposium). Co-organized by CITRIS and the Banatao Institute and the UC Berkeley College of Engineering, this year’s event focused on the theme, “Advancing Climate Resilience,” highlighting the latest innovations in clean energy, water conservation, food systems, and more.
Von Meier, along with experts from the Building Decarbonization Coalition (BDC) and BlocPower, participated in the “Getting to Zero: Trends in the Built Environment” panel discussion. Moderated by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Mary Ann Piette, the session covered the development of innovative technologies needed to rapidly reduce carbon emissions with a focus on serving disadvantaged communities.
