Rapidly changing around the world, energy development poses new economic and environmental challenges on a daily basis. Companies have made long-term investment and supply chain decisions based upon climate change models. "Zero" emission vehicles have changed the point of emissions from the tailpipe to the power plant, but those emissions are only as "clean" as the manufacturing process and the source that generates the power. Laws and regulations are adapting to the changing world of energy development and this year's symposium discusses the law, the politics and the policies influencing these changes.
