Accelerating Global Energy Access

 

Please join us for the launch of the Energy Access Project 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Friday, February 23, 2018, in Washington, D.C.

Portrait of keynote speaker Jim RogersJim Rogers, former CEO and chairman of the board for electric utility Duke Energy, will deliver the keynote address. A CEO in the power sector for almost 25 years, Rogers has been an advocate for energy-efficiency investment, modernization of electric infrastructure, and global energy access.

With nearly a third of humanity lacking reliable electricity and three billion people without clean fuels and technologies for cooking, energy access represents one of the greatest challenges of our time. In response, Duke University has launched its Energy Access Project, a research and policy project focused on supporting viable pathways to sustainable and modern energy solutions for all. This event will be an opportunity to learn about what's already underway at Duke and join Rogers and other experts across government, industry, and nonprofits to help shape the Energy Access Project's 2018 agenda.

The event is open to the public, but registration is required.
