    Lithium: Driving Sustainable Development?
    Javiera Barandiarn, Assistant Professor, Global Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara
    New energy markets are creating a new generation of high-value commodities like lithium for batteries. Can developing countries that supply these commodities use this opportunity to drive sustainable development? Or will these countries suffer yet another iteration of the resource curse? This talk explores these questions through the history of lithium extraction, markets, and supply chains in Chile and Argentina. This talk is part of a larger series, Energy and Society: Communities of Energy in Transition.

    Federal policies and challenges related to the sugarcane ethanol in Brazil
    Wellington Pereira, PhD Candidate in Public Policies at the Federal University of Parana, Brazil and a Visiting Scholar at Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes
    Brazil is regarded as the pioneer in developing a market for sugarcane ethanol. After the federal government involvement with the organization of this sector for many years, more recently Brazil lost its leading position as the world largest ethanol producer to US. However, Brazilian case is still a good example of a successful large-scale market for biofuels, despite the challenges faced by the country after the government stteped back as both organiser and regulator of that market. The aim of this research is to analyze the effectiveness of public policies and federal institutions concerning the potential of ethanol, specially the second generation one, as a strategic source of development.

    Join the Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes for a quick and edifying lunchtime presentation, discussion and pizza. Please RSVP to cspo@asu.edu

    What happens to a dream deferred? Visions for an integrated renewable energy system in the Mediterranean region
    Sharlissa Moore, Ph.D. Candidate, Human and Social Dimensions of Science and Technology, Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes, Arizona State University
    This talk examines the social and political dynamics of multi-national energy systems and develops a multi-scalar framework for analyzing energy justice within them, drawing on the case study of the Desertec vision to build numerous solar power plants in the Sahara desert and export the power to Europe and North African responses to the idea of regional energy integration and local siting issues. This talk is part of a larger series, Energy and Society: Communities of Energy in Transition.
