This is going to be a great event you will not want to miss.

Global energy sources and producers are rapidly changing. Wind, solar, and fuel cell technology are all coming on strong as alternatives to oil and natural gas. New methods of extracting fossil fuels have changed the balance of power in world energy markets and driving down prices to levels thought unreachable a few years ago. And then there is global warming to deal with! Where is this all heading? 

Dr. Francis O'Sullivan, Director of Research and Analysis at the MIT Energy Initiative will help us understand the winners and losers in the changing energy landscape and what we might be using to heat our homes and power our cars in future years. 

Dr. O'Sullivan is a lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management. His research interests span a range of topics related to energy technologies, policy and economics. His current research is focused on unconventional oil and gas resources, the energy-water nexus, and solar energy. He has extensive expertise regarding the production dynamics and associated economics of North America’s shale plays. His work also includes the study of global gas market dynamics and the LNG trade, and he is actively studying the implications for international energy markets of emerging unconventional hydrocarbon resource plays, particularly those in China and Australia.
