The ETA Distinguished Lecture Series showcases prominent scientists, engineers, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs who have transformed our understanding of, and approaches to the world's most critical energy and environment challenges. About four times each year, the Energy Technologies Area of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory invites an outstanding speaker to lecture on a topic relevant to the Area's areas of interest.
