On Wednesday, April 16, United States Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz visited Georgia Tech to deliver the keynote address at the Sam Nunn Bank of America Policy Forum and to learn more about energy research and education initiatives on campus.
Themed “U.S. Competitiveness Amid a Changing Natural Gas Landscape: A View from the Southeast,” the policy forum provided a platform for Secretary Moniz to urge leaders in energy research like Georgia Tech to focus on energy independence, cost, and security, and we can do all three if we apply our innovation thinking.
After the forum, director of the Georgia Tech Strategic Energy Institute Tim Liewen hosted the Secretary in focused meetings with faculty and students. Faculty briefed Moniz on their work to define the future of the nation’s energy grid, improve national security and explore international aspects of energy.
