NAS to hold 2-day summit on energy issues
Date:2/19/2008

Energy policy is at the center of some of the nation's most pressing challenges, from national security and the economy to global climate change. To provide a critical overview of America's energy future, the National Academies are convening a summit of leading energy experts from the government, research institutions, and the private sector. The event will inform an Academies study under way called "America's Energy Future: Technology Opportunities, Risks, and Tradeoffs."

Topics to be examined over the course of the two-day summit include:

  • geopolitical context of U.S. energy policy and global supply and demand;

  • coal, nuclear power, biofuels, and hydrogen;
  • implications for the automotive fuel economy;
  • innovative energy projects for electricity production and hybrid vehicles;
  • requirements for a sustainable energy future; and
  • climate change technologies and CO2 reduction.

DETAILS:

March 13 and 14 from 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. each day in the auditorium of the National Academy of Sciences building, 2100 C St., N.W., Washington, D.C. Those who cannot attend may listen to a live webcast of the event at http://www.national-academies.org.

Sessions will be moderated by Ralph J. Cicerone, president of the National Academy of Sciences; and Charles M. Vest, president of the National Academy of Engineering.

PRESENTERS INCLUDE:

U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman, chair, Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources
Samuel W. Bodman, secretary, U.S. Department of Energy
Steven Chu, director, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, and co-chair, Interacademy Council Study Panel on a Sustainable Energy Future
