Leaders in policy and energy systems engineering discuss cutting-edge technologies, and critical barriers in their disciplines. Speakers range from research leaders, to business leaders, to policy makers. The aim of the seminar series is to provide a view at multiple scales, of challenges in developing and implementing new energy technologies. Industrial, governmental, and research perspectives will be given, on the most promising technologies and policies which will shape our energy portfolio and its environmental consequences, in the decades to come. The need to create sustainable energy systems is a common theme, and the speakers will offer their own perspectives on how policy and technology can be effective in doing so.

The course will be offered both in person, and via distance learning. A portion of each lecture will be devoted to discussion. Topics The topic areas are as follows, with approximate numbers of lectures devoted to each subject:

  1. The energy landscape: policy, technology and economic drivers for sustainable, global energy systems. (3 lectures)
  2. Key technologies: novel fuels, storage, generation and device technologies, from portables, to automobiles, to grid sources. (6 lectures)
  3. Creating successful businesses in energy technologies: lessons learned, and future directions, in mature and new industries. (3 lectures)
  4. Changing the way we think: sustainable systems, flexible grids, and the path ahead in energy systems. (3 lectures)
