What does the energy economics community believe about the future of energy? In this interactive discussion, we'll use live polling of the audience to ask a series of questions about critical trends in energy economics and compare these answers with those from a panel of experts. Audience members will vote at home on each question, while the panelists offer their perspectives and address the crowdsourced responses. Audience members will have the chance to offer additional ideas and questions in the chat. Part game show, part expert discussion, this informative and entertaining experiment offers the cure for the common webinar.
