Former U.S. National Security Adviser, Gen. Jim Jones, to Address
EnergyBiz Leadership Forum
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.
