    2013 Tufts Energy Conference: Powering Global Energy Security

    11:00 AM – 6:00 PM

    Availability, accessibility, affordability, and acceptability: these “Four As” are at the core of global energy security. As energy demands increase around the world, the global community must balance the “Four As” while keeping up with need. Thanks to major innovations in extraction technologies, fossil fuels remain an available and affordable global asset. Yet climate change, geopolitical risk, and environmental impacts are changing the energy debate and challenging the acceptability of fossil fuels. In the short term, emerging green technologies often lack accessibility, availability, and affordability. TEC 2013 will explore how both developing and developed countries are working to meet their energy needs, manage geopolitical risk, and ensure energy security.
