Guest Speaker: Dr. Lawrence J. Makovich '73
What's up with our soaring power bills?
Massachusetts and Connecticut consumers face some of the highest power prices in the nation. One primary reason is the cost of energy policies designed to increase electric efficiency along with renewable power production. Is this the price we have to pay for a transition to a lower carbon economy or is it the consequence of well-intentioned but ineffective efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions? Larry Makovich will provide his perspective on this question by sharing his research insights into the current state of the New England energy sector.
Larry Makovich is a 1973 graduate of Fairfield Prep. After graduating from Boston College, he began his career as an energy economist focusing on the electric power sector and environmental issues. Along the way, he earned a masters degree from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. from the University of Massachusetts. He is a Vice President at IHS and works out of Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has published numerous articles, testified in front of US Congressional committees, advised foreign government policymakers and regularly briefs the leadership of the energy sector. Larry and his wife, Aileen, raised two daughters and live in Lexington, Massachusetts.
