FT U.S. Energy Business Conference
Venue: Hilton New York
|Event Date/Time: Sep 24, 2009||End Date/Time: Sep 24, 2009|
The alternative energy industry is a nascent one; traditional energy companies are some of the most profitable on Earth. It is likely that the two will work side by side in creating America's new energy future.
While the American government has committed to creating a "green economy", with millions of jobs, it is not yet clear how this will be integrated into the nation's current energy infrastructure.
Undoubtedly, the brave new energy future involves major transitions that will require huge investment and effective leadership. A vision is needed to grasp the major opportunities emerging in renewable energies, carbon markets, efficiency and demand side management, as traditional energy companies stay relevant.
After a series of successful energy events in the UK, the Financial Times is pleased to be hosting the inaugural FT US Energy Business Conference, bringing together executives from both alternative and traditional energy companies, investors, academics and policy-makers for a one-day high-level discussion on the financial challenges to energy growth.
