The Energy Club of Columbia's Graduate School of Business and The Energy Association of Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs will host Imagining Tomorrow: Meeting Energy Demands in a Carbon Constrained World on Friday, 27 March 2009. The day-long event will be in Lerner Hall, on Columbia's Morningside campus. The two schools are joined in their dedication to educating those who will develop and execute solutions to the looming energy challenges.
Imagining Tomorrow will focus on the influence that carbon constraints have on the use of coal, renewable energy, and unconventional oil as well as the role that carbon markets can play in this dynamic sector. The purpose of Imagining Tomorrow is to create an exchange of ideas – balancing portfolios between traditional and emerging energy companies, and connect students with business leaders, academics and regulatory experts. All participants will gather to create new ideas which will enrich the knowledge of all participants and rebalance the world's energy portfolio.
In short, the symposium will connect students with business leaders in defining roles at the forefront of both traditional and emerging energy markets in a schedule that features:
- Two Keynote Speakers who are industry leaders
- Four panels that will focus on sharply-defined themes critical to driving energy solutions, featuring panelists who have experiences and successes across the featured topics of:
