The Center on Global Energy Policy is honored to welcome Dr. Ernest J. Moniz as guest speaker at our annual Energy Leaders Forum in New York City. Merit E. Janow, Dean of the School of International and Public Affairs, will offer welcoming remarks. Secretary Moniz will then reflect on the Department of Energy’s role in key international efforts to ensure America’s national security and advance low-carbon economies globally under the Obama Administration. Secretary Moniz will discuss his role negotiating the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, implementing the JCPOA and the Department’s nuclear non-proliferation and energy security efforts. The Secretary will also discuss the Administration’s efforts to combat climate change under the Paris accord and the Department’s role in developing and deploying low-carbon energy technologies. Following the Secretary’s remarks, Center Director Jason Bordoff will moderate a discussion with questions submitted from the audience.
