Energy Entrepreneurship and Innovation: Today's Challenges, Tomorrow's Opportunities

There are ample opportunities for new energy entrepreneurs, these panelists agree, but motivation and certain kinds of know-how play key roles in bringing new ventures to fruition.

Achieving U.S. Energy Security Through Energy Diversity

Robert Malone reminds us that the fate of the U.S. economy is intricately bound up with energy costs, and that this year alone, "we'll pay more than $400 billion for imported oil," and that the U.S. has paid out $8 trillion for foreign oil since 1973.

Student Stories: Jenny Kwan, MBA '09

Jenny Kwan spent her down time in January going from the E and I Trek in California to an independent research project in China that explored clean energy entrepreneurship. She'll be back in China in March as part of the inaugural ChinaLab and hopes to end up there for good upon graduation. For this driven New Zealander, her goal of successfully marrying her interests in energy, entrepreneurship, and China is very close to being realized.

Energy 2.0 Morning Keynote

Jeffrey Immelt says that increasing demand among both developing and developed nations, geopolitical concerns, and a recent focus on environmental considerations in international policy dictate GE's vast investment in new energy ventures, and its expectation of handsome returns for many decades.

Building Technology, Talent and Policy Bridges to a Low-Carbon Future

After 20-plus years in the utility industry, James Rogers is emphatic that we must "build a bridge to a low carbon world." He confesses to a missionary zeal around clean energy, and to the fact that he must reinvent his business, Duke Energy.

Solar Energy as a Major Replacement for Fossil Fuel

t took a crisis to shift Roger Angel's gaze from the stars back to Earth, but we may all benefit from his full attention, locked as it is on helping crack the problem of global warming.

Forging Fellowship: Tanya Bodell, SF '08

Tanya Bodell believes joining the MIT Sloan Fellows Program was a leap of faith -- a leap that has paid off tenfold in professional opportunities and personal growth. As a vice president at CRA International, Tanya was looking to the Fellows program to prepare her for increasing leadership responsibilities, expand her skill set, and establish international relationships. What she also got was lifelong connections with classmates and an expanded perspective on the world. She also became an expert juggler: In her two years in the Fellow's flex format, she continued her duties at CRA, gave birth to her third child, and bought and renovated a new home.

How Would Climate Change Influence Society in the 21st Century? (Panel)

Rajendra K. Pachauri leads fellow members of the Nobel Prize-winning IPCC in a remarkable public session of soul-searching. Now that the IPCC has helped make climate change a signal issue of our times, what next?

Speed and Scale

In turn pragmatic and visionary, John Doerr describes his venture capital firm's response to the climate change/clean energy challenge, while answering a range of questions from an entrepreneurial and academic audience.

Leading Global Growth by Protecting What Really Matters Most

After 205 years, DuPont has transformed itself substantially while remaining true to its character, suggests Ellen Kullman. "We're a company with a passion for science," says Kullman. DuPont, which got its start making black powder for explosives, pursued chemicals for its first 100 years, but is now taking its science into energy, biotechnology and nanotechnology, with products and services in agriculture, nutrition, coating and color technologies, performance materials and safety and protection.

Sustainable Building Design @ MIT: Walking the Talk

There's "just exactly enough time, with no time to lose" to address the massive challenge of climate change and renewable energy, says moderator John Sterman.

Student Stories: Anjuli Gupta, MBA '08

Anjuli Gupta doesn't believe in just doing something good in the world; for her, it's about doing the most good that she can. Passionate about natural resources, Anjuli hopes to focus on energy finance after graduation. Having worked on environmental policy for non-profit, grassroots organizations, she sees finance as a major driver toward positive change. In order accomplish her goals, Anjuli believes that she needs to know how to run a team -- and how to design an organization that is effective. She came to MIT Sloan to learn all that and more. Anjuli spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about what she gained from the first-semester core, the rollercoaster ride of internship interviews, and spring break in Costa Rica.

Student Stories: Roxanne Chen

Roxanne Chen knows how to make an impression. This effervescent Tawain native is understandably well known among her fellow Sloanies for her infectious energy, refreshing candor, and her rather fervent love of Bon Jovi. Meet her just once and you'll understand how she was able to get her accounting classmates to alleviate their pre-finals jitters by leading them in a rousing rendition of "Living on a Prayer." The Marketing-focused Roxanne spoke with correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate about how her classmates helped prepare her for the rigors of the recruiting process, the benefits of a small school, and that one transcendent time when she actually touched Jon Bon Jovi's hand.

The Power of Competition: How to Focus the World's Brains on your Innovation Challenges

Cooperation may be making us "a little bit too nice" when it comes to innovation, suggests Fiona Murray. She believes there's nothing like competition for injecting energy into the process of solving key innovation problems, whether in business or society.

Student Stories: Sierra Towers, MBA '09

Set clear expectations on the home front and with your classmates -- and keep an open mind. Those are Sierra Towers' rules for successfully combining motherhood and her management education. She was initially drawn to MIT Sloan by the energy and collaboration she found here, but was also reassured by the insights of other student moms and the resources available for families. Sierra takes time out of her very busy schedule to talk to us about owning a restaurant, her extensive knowledge of beer, and doing her homework with her kids.

Climate Change: Challenges and Opportunities for Business and Society

If "organizations are the way that ideas change the world," as MIT Sloan Dean Dave Schmittlein puts it, then look to institutions like MIT, which has wrapped its arms around the issues of energy and climate change, to help make sustainability real and attainable. The Dean describes some showcase work launched at MIT, including a long-lasting battery for electric cars, and MIT's own green campus efforts.

The future of energy in Latin America — Lee Ullmann

Approximately 34 million people in Latin America and the Caribbean don’t have electricity in their homes and 75% of the regional energy matrix relies on nonrenewable sources of energy, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). However, increasing access to energy and increasing renewable energies and efficiency are critical for sustainable development. In recognition of this major need, the United Nations has made it a goal to make sustainable energy for everyone a reality by 2030 in its Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) global initiative. This is a significant challenge and one that MIT is well positioned to help address with its depth of knowledge across all areas of the energy sector. That’s why MIT’s Sloan School of Management chose to focus on this topic for its annual Latin America Conference. Partnering with the United Nations ECLAC, the MIT Sloan Latin America Office … Read More »The post The future of energy in Latin America — Lee Ullmann appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
