EBC Energy Program Luncheon: Update from the U.S. Department of Energy and Highlights of Activities in New England
November 21, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 2:15 pm
In June 2013, Energy Secretary Dr. Ernest Moniz selected Kevin Knobloch, then-President of the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), to serve as his Chief of Staff. Knobloch had served as President of UCS for a decade, a period when UCS leveraged its scientific and technical expertise to shape important policies and improve Americans’ well-being. Knobloch left his UCS post to support Secretary Moniz’s priorities, specifically: reducing carbon emissions, expanding clean renewable energy, and reducing the threat of nuclear weapons and fissile material.
In this EBC Program, Kevin Knobloch will provide a report on recent activities at the U.S. Department of Energy and highlight programs that will have a particular effect on New England.
