Energizing the Future Conference

Identifying and Addressing Energy Challenges

9 AM, February 10.

James Rogers, CEO Duke Energy

Balancing Affordable, Reliable and Clean

As a leading company in one of the most capital-intensive and long-dated industries in the nation, we have to base our strategic decisions on “affordable, reliable and clean.”  This requires a delicate balancing act to meet the current and future energy needs of our customers and to earn good returns for our investors.

Aubrey McClendon, CEO of Chesapeake Energy

The Future of Energy – Gas as the Transition Fuel.

New drilling and completion technologies have allowed the U.S. natural gas and oil industry to develop resources in shale reservoirs that were previously considered uneconomic.  Shale gas has quickly transformed the industry and provided consumers with reliable sources of supply and the ability to reshape the nation’s energy policy.  Natural gas is Clean, Affordable, Abundant and American and the most practical answer to our nation’s growing need for clean energy and reduced dependence on foreign oil.
