News & Updates


"Can entrenched energy systems undergo rapid changes" (MIT News Office)

"MIT Energy Conference explores recent dramatic developments in the energy landscape, and outlines the need for more."

"US Working Towards Energy Independence but Big Challenges Remain, Says Salazar" (Renewable Energy World)

"The United States is in a good place in terms of energy, explained former Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar during a keynote session at the MIT Energy Conference in Cambridge, Mass. Oil imports are the lowest since 1991 at 40 percent, carbon emissions are slowly dwindling, Salazar said, and the U.S. is making these positive improvements due to four cornerstones of progress." 

"Salazar at odds with Obama administration, Colo. voters over fracking rules" (SNL Energy)

"In a speech that put him at odds with the department he used to run, former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on Feb. 21 suggested that environmental concerns about new oil and gas drilling techniques are overstated and warned that attempts to rein in the shale boom could endanger the U.S. economy. "There is essentially this concern that people have about whether hydraulic fracturing is 'safe,'" Salazar said at the MIT Energy Conference in Boston, underscoring his disagreement with that concern by making scare quotes with his hands.”

"Daniel Yergin: Looking Back and Forward at Big Trends in Energy" (Energy Collective)

Excerpt: "Pulitzer prize-winning author and energy analystDaniel Yergin kicked off the 2014 MIT Energy Conference Friday by looking back at big changes in the energy landscape since the conference launched in 2006—and ahead at three visions for the future of energy."

"Fossil fuels remain at the forefront, energy expert says” (Boston Globe)

"Yergin on Friday delivered the keynote address at the MIT Energy Conference, an annual two-day gathering of industry insiders, academics, and policy makers. In a wide-ranging interview in his Cambridge office Thursday, Yergin tackled a variety of topics, including protecting the power grid from terrorist attacks and natural disasters; the false promise of oil independence; and the impact of cheap natural gas on power markets."

Bob Armstrong lists major changes in energy since 2013 MIT Energy Conference

Bob Armstrong, Executive Director of the MIT Energy Initiative, will be opening the 2014 Energy Conference with his Welcoming Remarks on February 21, and he gets the conversation started now with a post to the Energy Collective website titled, "10 Big Changes in Energy since the 2013 MIT Energy Conference." A great overview of the rapid pace of change in the energy landscape.
