Energy innovation is easy to talk about and difficult to implement. Does the country's system for creating new energy systems need to be radically overhauled or just tweaked? How can new capital flows get companies through the infamous "valley of death"? Is it better to subsidize research and development of new technologies or deployment of existing ones? "Business as usual" certainly won't fill the innovation gap, and proponents say that the world needs massive deployment of new low-carbon technologies to address climate change in a world with growing demand for power. Join us for a discussion of energy innovation, economics and policy with three of the country's leading energy thinkers.

Severin Borenstein, Co-director, Energy Institute, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley
