A low Carbon, Alternative Fuels Future: Perspectives from Europe and the Americas

Event information
Venue:Florida International University - MARC International Pavilion



Can alternative fuels step in to replace carbon-based energy and curb ominous climate changes? The Miami-Florida European Union Center of Excellence (MEUCE) brought together an eclectic team of academics, policy makers and entrepreneurs to ponder this seminal question at its 2009 annual conference. As befits the center’s orientation, the conference explored the state of affairs in three continents, Europe, North and South America. The day-long debate covered a number of angles, including the role of governments, consumers and the private sector, the economic feasibility of alternative fuels, issues of international cooperation and the increasing import of the developing world.
