Piotr D. Moncarz, Ph.D.: A New Energy Paradigm for the European Union and East-Central Europe?

Wed, Sep 14 2011 - 6:00pm

A New Energy Paradigm for the European Union and East-Central Europe?

Piotr D. Moncarz, Ph.D., Consulting Professor, Stanford University; Principal Engineer and Corporate Vice President, Exponent; Chairman, U.S.-Polish Trade Council

Moncarz presents a global economic perspective on the European Union’s dream of clean, efficient and renewable energy: Where is it within the climate challenge of coal, politicized natural gas supply and nuclear power? Will the huge amount of shale gas being developed by U.S. firms in Poland tilt the scale? The answers to these questions are critical to Eastern Europe in light of its coal dependence, aging power transmission and generation infrastructure, and the arrival of mass-produced electric cars.
