The Energy Question: Crises, Costs - And Alternatives

Tuesday, Jul 26, 2011

This summer, the heat is on, as both temperatures and energy prices rise. The recent announcement by 28 countries, including the US, to release 60 million barrels of strategic oil reserves, in an effort to lower energy costs and bolster the economy, is only the latest in over a year of energy crises--including a mine explosion, a major oil spill, and Japan's nuclear power plant disaster.

The big question is: what are the alternatives, how much do they cost, and what would it take to put them in place? In this timely panel, experts from across the energy sectors—finance, renewables, even oil—will debate the risks and opportunities ahead, addressing such issues as: How sustainable—economically, environmentally and socially--are alternative energies, including solar, wind, nuclear, bio, hydro? How have recent crises forced the energy sector to re-examine and re-structure its practices? From innovating new technologies, to financing renewable energy, to educating consumers, customers and employees, what opportunities exist for banks, companies, and the service sector?

Sponsors: Women's Network For A Sustainable Future

Speakers: Representatives from First Solar, Credit Suisse, Hess, Evolution Markets
