Dr. Michael Walsh, Executive Vice President of the Chicago Climate Exchange, spoke at the Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative (BERC) First Annual Lecture.

Dr. Michael Walsh spoke on the subject of how markets can be used to solve environmental problems and, simultaneously, create wealth. His remarks focused on the concept of emissions trading and the work of the Chicago Climate Exchange to reduce the air pollutants that contribute to global warming and acid rain. In addition to his role at the Chicago Climate Exchange, Dr. Walsh also serves on the Board of Directors of the Montreal Climate Exchange. Dr. Walsh has served as a Senior Economist with the Chicago Board of Trade where he directed their efforts to develop exchange-based environmental markets. He has also been involved with both domestic and international governmental activities on emissions trading, testifying before the U.S. Congress as well as speaking at a number of United Nations climate conferences.

The Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative (BERC) is an active, student-led organization whose mission is to connect and develop the UC Berkeley energy and resource community. The group acts as a bridge between the many schools, programs, and labs at the University, including the Boalt Hall School of Law, College of Chemistry, College of Engineering, College of Natural Resources, Energy & Resources Group, Goldman School of Public Policy, Haas School of Business, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, UC Energy Institute, and others. To foster productive applications of university research and technology, BERC forges connections with the larger energy and cleantech cluster growing in the Bay Area and beyond.
