Please join us for a very special lecture about what it takes to pass historic air quality legislation. Margo Oge served at the US Environmental Protection Agency for 32 years, the last 18 of which she directed the Office of Transportation Air Quality. Ms. Oge led the Obama Administration’s landmark 2012 Clean Air Act deal with automakers, which will double the fuel efficiency of automakers’ fleets to 54.5 mpg and cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2025. In Driving the Future: Combating Climate Change with Cleaner, Smarter Cars Margo Oge will provide the ultimate insider’s account of the science, politics, policy, legal battles and, most importantly, the people who made this regulation possible. She then describes transition technologies and the ultimate future that will enable a global market for super-efficient, zero carbon-emitting vehicles and other sustainable personal mobility options.

Emerging technologies and a new outlook on our world can help us be more energy efficient than ever before and expand the use of clean energy. In this age of extreme weather, dramatically fluctuating fuel prices, and unpredictable power outages, the question is: how resilient are you? Drawing on his expertise in energy efficiency and clean energy, Sean Reed will help attendees understand our rapidly changing world and how to make smart decisions about energy – in their business and family life. As Sean will explain, the time is right to seize this opportunity. We can take control of our energy future, but we must act now.

In the face of climate change and ever increasing electricity demand, many who once opposed nuclear energy now consider it an essential component of the low-carbon energy equation. The 2011 Fukushima disaster was a major industry setback and re-ignited an international policy debate, but it also accelerated innovations in safety and efficiency. Hear the latest from Michigan's nuclear power plant operators, researchers, and local entrepreneurs striving to keep nuclear safe, cost effective, and a net benefit to our environment.  Moderated by Nick Cucinelli​
