In the fall of 2021, Glasgow, Scotland, hosted the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, commonly referred to as COP26. During the proceedings, U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm announced the Net Zero World Initiative, an international partnership led by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) aimed at helping developing nations around the world achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions.

Alongside colleagues from other national laboratories, Rackham and 1993 Barbour Scholarship alumna Xin Sun (Ph.D., ’95) was there to support Granholm’s announcement. And as associate laboratory director of the Energy Science and Technology Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, Sun finds herself at the very heart of the DOE’s efforts to make a net zero emissions future a reality.
