Strengthening Our Energy Security Future

December 14, 2017

Alliance Française de Chicago
54 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL, USA


Join us for a discussion on strengthening our future energy security through the adoption of advanced energy solutions that will diversify the U.S. economy, increase resiliency and reliability, and mitigate the global impacts of climate change.

Rising seas, food shortages, extreme weather and other consequences of climate change all impact national security. These events can accelerate instability in a region, and fuel conflicts.

To gain a clearer picture of the issue, this event will begin with a segment from the feature film “The Age of Consequences” (Available on STARZ) followed by a discussion with Chris Davy, Director for Policy Analysis and Public Diplomacy Bureau of Energy Resources, Department of State; and Tom Morehouse, Executive Advisor to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Former Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Operational Energy Plans and Programs. Colonel Greg Douquet (USMC Retired), Nonresident Fellow at the Atlantic Council of the US will moderate.

This public program is the culminating event for participants in the 2017 Veteran’s Energy Seminar, which educates veterans, reservists, and military spouses on global energy security challenges to inspire continued service to the country through careers in the energy industry, policy, and entrepreneurship. C2ST welcomes you to this discussion.
