National, state, and even local governments have taken to promising a rapid overhaul of our energy system from its current basis in fossil fuels to a clean energy system based on renewable energy generated by windmills and solar power stations. These pledges translate into ambitious changes over a very short period of time. At this event, renowned energy scholar Vaclav Smil, distinguished professor at the University of Manitoba, will discuss the technological and infrastructure changes required to successfully achieve energy transitions. AEI resident scholar Kenneth P. Green will introduce Smil and moderate the discussion.
