Presenter

Join us for this event with Dr. Steven Koonin, Under Secretary for Science, U.S. Department of Energy. The U.S. Department of Energy┬┤s goals for meeting America┬┤s energy challenges involve energy security, reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions, and promoting changes in energy supply, transmission, storage, and use. And even within those challenges lies another: energy change can be slow. Dr. Koonin will discuss the technology, policy, and economic levers we can use to transform the energy system while enhancing U.S. competitiveness in the global economy.
