Experts discuss the future of energy over the planning horizon of business leaders, roughly 5-10 years. The panel explores the drivers and opportunities for moving to renewables and cleantech, but also the risks and limitations; looks at price and availability risks with traditional energy sources, including the possibility of a price on CO2 emissions; considers what the transition from traditional to "new" energy might look like, from the perspective of businesses that use energy in buildings, transportation, and embodied in products. How fast can and will it happen? What are the major challenges. How can business leaders make informed decisions?
Panel: TJ Deora, Director, Governor's Energy Office; James Newcomb, Program Director, Rocky Mountain Institute; Tisha Conoly Schuller, President; CEO, Colorado Oil & Gas Association; and Cathy Ramsey, P.E., Senior Director - Energy, Newmont Mining; moderator - Darice Henritze, Partner, KPMG
