The Future of Energy
Duke of Energy
Jim Rogers, Chairman and CEO, Duke Energy
Will the United States adopt a nationwide plan for generating electricity with clean energy? How will that affect consumer prices? How will it affect the country’s greenhouse gas emissions? Are electric utilities ready for electric cars? One of America’s most prominent energy executives, Rogers has been featured on “60 Minutes” and played a leading role in the cap-and-trade debate. Join him for a conversation with Greg Dalton at a critical juncture in planning America’s energy future.

James Sweeney, Director, Precourt Energy Efficiency Center, Stanford
Tony Knowles, Chair, National Energy Policy Institute; Former Governor, Alaska
California will soon be implementing its new carbon trading system, but what impact will this have on climate change as a whole? What does the U.S. need to do to become the leader in energy efficiency? What can Americans expect from the government when it comes to energy policy? Will Obama’s energy policy be enough to cultivate a clean energy economy while creating enough jobs to stimulate the economy? At the Department of Energy, former Deputy Secretary T.J. Glauthier focused primarily on advancing renewable energy in an age of coal and oil giants. Join us for a conversation on propelling energy policies and funding ahead of the game and into the future.
