Decarbonizing Louisiana's Economy

Challenges and Opportunities

Spring 2024

The LSU Center for Energy Studies will host several workshops titled “Decarbonizing Louisiana's Economy: Challenges and Opportunities,” which will address questions regarding decarbonization investments taking place in the state, including carbon capture, utilization, and storage; renewable energy projects such as wind and solar; and hydrogen production.

The workshops, to be held on the LSU campus in Baton Rouge, are intended for locally elected officials from parishes impacted by one or more of these decarbonization projects.

Workshop format: The workshop will begin with a presentation, followed by a Q&A session. LSU faculty with expertise in both the technical and economic aspects of decarbonization projects will be present. The workshop will run 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

Note: We will abide by public meetings laws and will therefore not allow a quorum of any one governmental body. Seating will be limited to approximately 25 people per workshop.
