The Challenge Of Energy Efficiency

Thursday, Jun 26, 2008

Growing populations, a changing climate, rising oil prices and diminishing fuel reserves: these are realities confronting America’s cities. While political leaders debate the development of alternative energy sources, most experts agree energy efficiency is fundamental to the urban future. Can cities combat global warming and the high cost of power with less wasteful infrastructure and other strategies? What will it take for cities to become more efficient—and what reforms are beyond the powers of local government?

Keynote address:
John Podesta, President, Center for American Progress, and former Chief of Staff to President Bill Clinton

Panel discussion:
Susan Anderson, Director of Sustainable Development, City of Portland, Oregon, Kenny Esser, Policy Advisor, Office of New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine, James T. Gallagher, Senior Vice President for Energy Policy, NYC Economic Development Corporation, Ashok Gupta, Air and Energy Program Director, Natural Resources Defense Council, Max Schulz, Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute Center for Energy Policy and the Environment

Moderator:
Andrew C. Revkin, Science Reporter, The New York Times

The Challenge of Energy Efficiency is the inaugural program in the Cities Respond to Climate Change series. Con Edison has generously underwritten both this program and a new scholarship fund to train the next generation of leaders in sustainable urban development at Milano.
