Continuing our lecture series for 2008, The Triple Helix Cambridge (www.camtriplehelix.com) presents:

WHAT IF SCIENCE DOESN ’T SAVE THE WORLD ? Energy Security in Crisis

In our second event of the term, join our expert speaker panel to discuss issues surrounding energy security, the current political and economic climate, and what the future holds for this issue! Are we heading for global catastrophe or is it all under control? What about countries that need to develop?

With key players and priorites constantly shifting, can science and technology secure our energy supply while permitting sustainable development for the third world? More importantly, can we simultaneously save the planet from climate change catastrophe? Is there even a crisis or is it all a lot of hot air?

Answering these questions requires consideration of complex economic and political factors alongside the technological possibilities. Join prominent figures from industry and academia to get the low down on all aspects of this important and topical issue. Chaired by Professor David MacKay (Department of Physics), our panel includes:

  • Jonathan Davis – Director, Energy, Infrastructure and Utilities business group, Deloitte & Touche LLP
  • Dr Pierre Noel – Research Associate, Cambridge Electricity Policy Research Group and Acting Director, Electricity Policy Research Forum
  • Professor Andrew Woods – Head of the BP Institute for Multiphase Flow and BP Professor

Following a short presentation from each speaker, the floor will be open to you so we invite you to come and express your questions and views!
