Event Details

Energy and environmental public policy: Joining the dots between public policy, economics and implementation

 Mr James Voss  

Engineers often think that public policy is that which comes from others, that it is ours to implement. In fact, we each share in the responsibility to help develop policy, particularly in the areas of energy and environmental quality. Too many policy initiatives become "happy dreams" of leaders who do not understand the full implications. 

This lecture will explore the policy topic, of sound as well as poorly conceived policy, and how engineers may take a more active if not assertive role in its development.
Come prepared to interact and to share your views.

James Voss is a nuclear engineer with 38 years of professional experience associated with the safe management of nuclear materials. He has led nuclear, environmental and renewable energy initiatives in over 40 countries. Mr Voss has served in the Executive Office of the President of the United States for two Presidents. He has advised senior government officials throughout the world. Mr Voss is a Fellow of the UK Nuclear Institute.
