JUC Green Task Force: Electricity for Peace // 7 p.m. //  When countries depend on each other they’ll prosper together and keep the peace. That is the idea behind an effort trying to bring North Korea out of political isolation, convincing it to give up nuclear weapons in return for becoming the hub of a proposed Asian Super Grid. Such a grid would decarbonize much of Asia, transporting clean renewable power from giant remote wind and solar plants to urban and industrial centers to replace harmful coal and gas plants.  JUC member Robert Williams is Senior Research Scientist, Emeritus, with the Andinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University.  Stay for conversations, food and drinks at the reception following the Q&A.  Contact: Martin Voelker
