9:25-10:05: SESSION III: “Winning a secure, clean energy future”

What will it take for the U.S. to achieve real energy security and competitiveness? How can public policy advance clean energy technologies and renewable energy sources? What are the most promising short- and long-term initiatives currently before Congress? What should the EPA’s role be in regulation and the enforcement of new pollution rules? Plus, nuclear policy after Japan: The tragic events in Japan have raised questions about the policy consensus around nuclear power as an important source of low-carbon energy and a key to energy security. Can standards be effectively updated to further mitigate risks in the case of natural disaster or power failure? How can government policy promote the development of safer nuclear technologies?
