    From Transition to Transformation:
    Meeting the Energy Challenges of Today and Tomorrow

    16 September 2008

    Financial Times-World Energy Council Conference

    It’s hard to imagine a group more central to the urgent question of how to transform our energy landscape, and I’m pleased to join you in this vital conversation. Given the topic of your conference, “Investment Opportunities in Clean Energy Businesses,” it may seem odd that a university president was asked to speak. But as many of you may know, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is different from most universities. MIT has always been intensely concerned with solving real world problems. We have a long track record of developing breakthroughs that spur revolutionary change and a long history of moving ideas from the mind to the marketplace.

    Today, I want to talk about how we see the energy challenge, some of the directions we are pursuing, short-term and long-term, and how we can join forces with people in both traditional and alternative energy businesses to chart the path ahead.

    We have the technology.

    All we need is the political will.
