MIT Energy Initiative Colloquium

Arguably the most difficult type of planning involves major, long-term capital investments that are surrounded by great uncertainty. Such is the case in the world of energy. Opportunities for technology breakthroughs in the production and use of energy abound; major shifts in demand seem inevitable, but vulnerabilities also thrive. It is a field of countless possibilities... especially for those who enjoy taking risks.
