As international business executives and other leaders gathered for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, January 21-24, top energy and climate experts among them came together for a special discussion on “The Future of Energy and Climate Change in Emerging Economies.” The event, occurring on January 23rd in Davos, was hosted by the University of Chicago and led by EPIC's Michael Greenstone.
Greenstone framed the discussion by laying out the main energy challenge emerging economies, like China and India, face today: How to improve access to energy in order to grow the economy, while also cutting deadly pollution and confronting climate change.
