The Hoover Institution hosted "MIT-Stanford Energy Game Changers Symposium" on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 from 8:45am - 1:00pm EST.

Recent progress in energy technology research and development in the United States has been substantial-the past decade has seen dramatic reductions in the costs of emerging technologies alongside similar improvements in energy security and environmental performance. This golden age of domestic energy innovation has benefited Americans in areas throughout the economy. Today, US energy researchers in many sectors are envisioning ways in which continued R&D progress might enable revolutionary new options for domestic energy generation and use.

On September 18, former US Secretary of State George P. Shultz alongside scientists and engineers from two leading American research universities and DOE national labs as they explore the potential for energy "game changers": inexpensive and abundant clean electricity production, affordable grid energy storage at scale, secure electrochemical fuel manufacturing, less carbon -intensive fossil energy through carbon capture, and more.
