MITEI Seminar: Innovating for the Clean Energy Economy

This talk will examine the current state of clean energy innovation and implementation. Through explorations of household, city, and regional clean energy innovations and implementation efforts, Professor Daniel Kammen will both analyze successful innovation processes and identify the areas that need urgent action and targeted programs. A mixture of analytic and empirical studies will be used to explore what steps have worked and where dramatic new approaches are needed. Hosted by the MIT Energy Initiative.
