WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--What will it take for America’s leadership to bridge the partisan political divide and devise short- and long-term energy policy and solutions? How can the U.S. reduce its dependence on imported oil, deal with climate change, and lead the world in nuclear, coal, gas and renewable energy technologies?
At the 5th Annual EnergyBiz Leadership Forum (www.EnergyBizForum.com) in Washington, March 18-19, 2013, Gen. Jim Jones—former National Security Advisor and former Commandant of the Marine Corps—will share his insights about how government and industry can devise and implement enduring energy policy.
Gen. Jones, a Senior Fellow for the Bipartisan Policy Center, will present the keynote address at the State of Energy dinner March 19. His remarks will include the first major presentation of the center’s findings that will be released later this month, gathered during its two-year study on the future of national energy policy. The first part of the study—released in November 2012—recommended the creation of a National Energy Strategy, development of measurable objectives, and cross-agency coordination.
“We have this tremendous opportunity…that will affect our leadership in the world,” Jones says.
Held at The National Press Club, the Leadership Forum brings together leading utility chief executive officers and national energy thought leaders to exchange perspectives on the global issues impacting the utility industry. The forum’s theme is “Strategies for a Radically New Utility Universe,” with a full agenda of speakers, presentations and discussions about key topics like emerging technologies, innovation, political forecasting, finance and security.
