The next several decades will see pivotal changes in how consumers use energy and how utilities supply electricity. The development of new technologies that could meet demand across major end use sectors – transportation, residential, commercial, and industry – will also have economic and climate change considerations for policy makers and industry. The policy, investment, and technology choices made today will help define the future electric power sector.
Through this high-level panel discussion, we will consider the challenges and opportunities in the electric power sector for 3 major economies: the United States, Japan, and the European Union.
