Acting in Time on Energy Policy

When: September 18 – 19, 2008
Where: Harvard Kennedy School, Cambridge, MA

The Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group at Harvard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, under the auspices of the Consortium for Energy Policy Research at Harvard and in collaboration with the Harvard University Center for Environment, hosted a major policy conference, entitled Acting in Time on Energy Policy.

The two-day conference addressed public policy dimensions of the following topics: oil and transportation; climate change; carbon capture and storage; electricity structure and infrastructure; and energy-technology innovation. A book with the same title, Acting in Time on Energy Policy, incorporating papers written on these topics will be published by Brookings Institution Press in Spring 2009.
