About this SPEAKER

Dr. Joule Bergerson is an associate professor in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the University of Calgary’s Schulich School of Engineering, the Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Energy Technology Assessment and a member of the Royal Society of Canada College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists. Dr. Bergerson directs an interdisciplinary and collaborative research team and is a global leader in the development of new methods for energy technology assessment, contributing to the development and broader use of systems tools in the energy sector. She has published more than 70 peer reviewed publications in the top journals in her field of energy systems analysis, including recent papers in Science, Nature Climate Change, Nature Communications and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Dr. Bergerson has received recognition for her research, including best paper awards in the Journal of Industrial Ecology, Environmental Science and Technology, the CSChE Emerging Leaders in Chemical Engineering Award and the UCalgary Peak Scholar Award. The impact of her work includes the adoption of her research results directly into policies such as California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard and policy relevant tools (e.g., U.S. GREET model). Researchers on her team work with scientists, engineers, governments and members of the business community who are developing new energy technologies, to develop and refine techniques for prospective assessment. These techniques help prioritize research and development activities, by identifying technologies – or optimal combinations of technologies – that could provide particularly large life cycle economic and environmental benefits.
