          This session will help policymakers and even researchers aware of the current and future state of data collection in education at all levels and the realities of what can and cannot be delivered for decision-making. The SIF 3.0 technical blueprint will allow for great local control of information and yet streamline data access and reporting by schools, states and federal agencies if they demand openly developed interoperability standards – via SIF 3.0 – in the data ecosystems. “Don't ask for data they don’t have!”

            The residential rooftop solar market is growing rapidly in California without state incentives. Across the country solar is becoming more cost competitive with the grid, spurring a boom in deployment. Yet costs in the US - see chart below - remain dramatically higher than elsewhere (residential rooftop solar prices in Germany are half of those in the U.S. and the DOE’s SunShot goals are even more aggressive) and higher than they need to be to achieve truly broad acceptance. Please join us on September 26th to hear from the CEOs and advocates who enable this revolution as they discuss the next steps in bringing solar to every roof. Tom Werner – CEO, SunPower, Paul Nahi – CEO, Enphase, Andrew Birch – CEO, Sungevity, Nicholas Lazares - Chairman & CEO, Admirals Bank, Susannah Churchill – CA Policy Advocate, Vote Solar, Moderator: Barry Cinnamon – Former CEO, Akeena/Westinghouse Solar

                    • The Inaugural John Freebairn Lecture in Public Policy, "Governing the Ungovernable: The Market, Technology and You"


                      from FBE University of Melbourne / Added

                      Technology is changing at lightning speed; how can regulation best keep pace? Existing regulations were not designed to deal with rapidly changing technology. Numerous examples demonstrate how new technologies stress old regulations: When misleading ads are placed on the web, who is to blame, the advertiser or the hosting site (e.g. Google)? Should laws limit firms that hold patents over critical technology (e.g. Apple vs. Samsung on phone technologies)? How does electricity regulation (and the electricity network) deal with solar panels that feed back into the grid? On the other hand, advanced technologies and new tools of economics can empower consumers. The internet provides consumers with a worldwide marketplace. Products can be designed to meet individual consumer specifications. Regulation can aid or undermine this new consumer empowerment. As technology advances, regulation must adapt and work with consumers. Regulatory bodies need to be more agile and innovative to deal with technological change. In this lecture, Professor King discusses how recent technological advances affect regulatory policy, the future direction of regulation and how policy can best guide this future. Stephen King is Professor of Economics and co-director of the Business Policy Forum at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. He was Dean of the Faculty of Business and Economics at Monash University from 2009-2011. Prior to joining Monash, Stephen was a Member of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). Stephen’s main areas of expertise are in competition economics, regulation and industrial organization. His research has been published widely, including articles in major international economics journals. He has edited and co-authored books on Australian economic policy and is co-author of a leading microeconomics textbook. He is a co-editor of the Economic Record, the journal of the Economics Society of Australia. In addition to his roles at Monash University, Stephen is a part-time Member of the Economic Regulation Authority of WA, a Member of Australia’s National Competition Council, and a Lay Member of the High Court of New Zealand. He has advised numerous government agencies and private businesses on competition issues, and provided expert testimony to the courts on a variety of matters. Stephen has a PhD from Harvard University and received the University Medal from the Australian National University for his undergraduate studies. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia.
