A conversation with:

Head of Technology
Carol Battershell
Principal Deputy Director, Office of Policy
US Department of Energy

Moderated by:
Amb. Richard Morningstar (Ret.)
Founding Chairman, Global Energy Center
Atlantic Council

Please join the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center on Tuesday, May 8 from 9:00-10:30 a.m. for a wide-ranging discussion about the role of technology in shaping the future of global energy.

The energy industry is changing faster than at any time in our lifetime. It faces two huge challenges: firstly, providing more energy than ever before to meet the world’s increasing demand; and secondly, transitioning to a lower carbon future. Drawing upon analysis conducted by BP and its partners, Eyton will discuss some of the major longer-term signals out to 2050, as well as key findings in transport, power and heat, while Battershell will discuss the US Department of Energy's work on technology innovation, including Lab Technology Commercialization and the Energy Storage Xlab Summit. Their conversation with Amb. Morningstar will also cover the key game-changing technologies for the energy industry and the challenges we face.

A light breakfast will be provided.
