Energy is critical for economic growth. However, in many parts of the world, energy is expensive and unreliable. At the same time, the world’s energy choices lead to levels of pollution that are substantially shortening people’s lives in many countries and causing the planet’s climate to change.

Economist Michael Greenstone, LAB ’87, will explore key energy trends and outline the market, policy, and technology choices that will help meet the global energy challenge.
