America's Energy Challenges

Listen in to 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 discusses the technology, policy, and economic levers we can use to transform the energy system while enhancing U.S. competitiveness in the global economy.
