Speaker: Jim Sweeney, Stanford University

Abstract:
Energy problems and policy proposals remain in the news; sometimes the news is good, other times it seems headed in the wrong direction. After a brief look at the underlying nature of the problems I will focus on energy efficiency -- economically efficient reductions of energy use. I will give particular attention to the "low-hanging fruit" associated with energy efficiency. Policies to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency have been gaining momentum throughout the world, often justified by environmental and energy security concerns. So why has this low-hanging fruit not yet all been picked and eaten? Is it really so low-hanging? If not, what can we do to move toward more energy efficiency and renewable energy policies?
