Climate Emergency: Solutions for a Clean Energy Transition

Friday & Saturday, February 28th and 29th, 2020

160 Packard Ave, Tufts University, Medford, MA

In the wake of global climate protests, record-setting fires, and increased polarization on the existence of climate change, it is clear that the status quo of how we power and govern our world must evolve. A global transition to renewable energy is vital in the battle against climate change. In this year's Tufts Energy Conference, we will seek to answer key questions around energy policy, technology in financing necessary for such a transition to take place. That's why this year's theme is Climate Emergency: Solutions for a Clean Energy Transition.

What is the Tufts Energy Conference?

The Tufts Energy Conference (TEC) is an annual event that brings together professionals, students, and experts from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to discuss critical global energy issues. The conference is organized by students from a broad range of backgrounds including engineering, international affairs, urban planning, and economics. From a two-panel event in 2006, TEC has grown into one of the largest entirely student-run energy conferences in the region, attracting nearly 300 attendees each year.


TEC is hosted by the Tufts Institute of the Environment (TIE). TIE provides organizational support to the conference, which is organized and executed by students. At Tufts, TIE initiates and promotes interdisciplinary environmental education, research, and outreach amongst Tufts students, staff, faculty and external partners.
