Nobel Laureate

Jack Steinberger - Honorary Committee Member

Biography: Jack Steinberger is a physicist who co-discovered the muon neutrino along with Leon Lederman and Melvin Schwartz, a discovery which earned the trio the 1988 Nobel Prize in Physics. Born as a Jew in Germany, he received a very simple upbringing as the country was still reeling under the post-war depression. Things took a turn for the worst when the Nazi party came into power and the systematic persecution of the Jews began. Fearing for their son’s life, his parents arranged to have him sent to the United States when he was 13. He struggled to establish himself in the foreign land and was aided by Jewish charities in the United States. Despite all the challenges he faced, he studied hard and obtained a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from the University of Chicago. He then worked towards his master’s degree and PhD and eventually embarked on an academic career. He conducted extensive research over the course of his career. Along with his Columbia University colleagues Lederman and Schwartz, he worked on significant experiments in particle physics which led to the discovery of a new type of neutrino called a muon neutrino. In addition to his scientific career, Steinberger is a Humanist Laureate in the International Academy of Humanism.

About CEWEG-2017

United Scientific Group, USA, in collaboration with Fusion Advocates, Geneva, Switzerland is organizing the first International Conference on Clean Energy for the World's Electricity Grids (CEWEG-2017) during November 20-22, 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland.

This Conference encourages a large network of researchers and other partners to present innovative technologies and engineering developments whose goal is to make the costs of renewable clean electricity generation competitive with traditional sources of energy. Through collaborations and through partnerships, working with national laboratories and innovative start-ups, it is within our grasp today to produce electricity from CEWEG sources, and to build cornerstones in the field of science and technology to provide much-needed electricity to both the developed and especially the developing world.

CEWEG sources for electricity grids include fusion energy, solar farms, water, wind farms and geothermal energy resources, as well as newer clean nuclear fission systems. Many companies are developing, manufacturing, and installing cutting-edge, high-tech, renewable energy systems. Further expansion of renewable electricity sources will continue as advanced technologies are developed, and existing technologies achieve lower costs and higher performance as these technologies mature.

We look forward to seeing you in Geneva, Switzerland!

Discusses the technology, research and development associated with each renewable and sustainable resource for electricity generation. Renewable electricity generation technology harnesses a naturally existing energy flux, such as wind, sun, heat, or tides, and converts that flux to electricity. Sustainable electricity generation uses an essentially unlimited naturally existing raw material to make electricity.
