For more than 40 years, the Aspen Institute has hosted forums about energy in the mountains of Aspen, Colorado. Whether the topics were the oil embargo of the mid-1970’s, the electricity crises of the early 2000’s, the shale boom of the mid-2000’s, or the clean energy revolution of the past decade, the Aspen Institute has been the place to go for top policy makers, corporate leaders, researchers, and non-profit leaders to discuss the future of energy. Today, more than ever before, this non-partisan and non-ideological dialogue is important in the US, and around the world.
This summary provides an overview of the three energy forums and roundtable that took place during summer 2017. The complete reports from each forum are available for download here:
