The Melbourne Energy Institute invites you to a public lecture with Professor Jesse D. Jenkins of Princeton University, who will present: Can the Inflation Reduction Act Put the United States on the Path to Net-Zero?
The leader of the REPEAT Project will share the project’s latest findings and identify progress and remaining gaps on the path to net-zero.For the first time, the full financial weight of the United States federal government is aligned behind the transition to clean energy.
A pair of budget (Inflation Reduction Act) and infrastructure (Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act) laws enacted by the last Congress will deploy more than half a trillion dollars of public funding over the next decade to put clean energy on sale and shift the USA away from fossil fuels. But will it be enough to put the United States on track for net-zero or to meet the nation’s 2030 climate goals?
The REPEAT Project assesses the impact of federal energy and climate policies as they are proposed, debated, and enacted.

Guest curators Dr Tamara Lewit and Dr Caroline Tully, both Honorary Fellows in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies, have chosen items that tell a fascinating story of the often-hidden lives of women, men, children, athletes and artisans, rich and poor, in the ancient world – including wine drinking, mourning the dead, and beauty routines.
The Classics and Archaeology Collection is one of the cornerstones of object-based learning at the University of Melbourne. From the origins of the Collection in 1901 with the donation of five Egyptian papyri, it has played an important role in teaching and research. Now managed by the Museums and Collections department, it has continued to grow through donations and purchases to encompass over 300 objects, with significant holdings of Classical, Cypriot and Near Eastern material.
The Classics and Archaeology teaching program at the University of Melbourne offers a multidisciplinary perspective on Egyptian, Near Eastern, Aegean, Greek and Roman civilisations and their interactions with each other and the wider Eurasian region from prehistory to late antiquity. It includes the study of archaeology, ancient society, politics, literature, myth and art, and Greek, Latin and Egyptian languages.
