Peter Fusaro, best-selling author and well-known commentator on emerging energy and environmental markets, will discuss how green initiatives impact the oil, gas and power industries at a Denver forum next week sponsored by CORE.
The event will be at 5:30 p.m. on June 17 at the Molson Coors Tap Room, 1225 17th Street, 32nd floor. Cost is $25 for CORE members and $40 for nonmembers. Registration.
Fusaro is chairman of Global Change Associates, an energy consultancy he founded in 1991 to focus on the interplay and convergence of energy and environmental financial markets. He’s written 15 books on energy and environmental financial markets, including the bestselling What Went Wrong at Enron.
Stephen Brand, Senior Vice President-Technology for ConocoPhillips, and Jill Cooper, Group Leader-Environment for Encana USA, will offer their reactions to Fusaro’s presentation and share their own observations on the future of U.S. energy policy in the context of the need to preserve the environment.
Here’s how CORE describes the agenda for the evening: “There's a critical need for the global economy to be provided with ever-increasing supplies of energy at affordable prices. There's an equally critical requirement that, in fulfilling this growing need, we make sure that we preserve the integrity of our environment. Both the traditional fossil fuel energy industry and the nascent renewable sector have responsibilities to meet both our economic and our environmental needs. Collaborative discussion and action will be the best way to ensure steady progress in addressing the complex issues associated with these critical needs.”
