INVITE: Wed, October 31 - Hydraulic Fracturing: Challenges and Opportunities
In recent years new advances in technology have changed our understanding of our nation’s energy future. “Hydraulic Fracturing” is a perfect example and offers America tremendous opportunity to have greater control of our own energy destiny. The potential is huge, but of course, like any new advance, there are risks. On September 25, we will host a panel discussion to help us better understand both the opportunities and challenges of these new technological advances and the potential of natural gas and oil shale. Among the panelists joining our moderator Kyle Simpson, Senior Energy Advisor for Hogan Lovells, LLC will be Dr. Mark Zoback, Professor of Earth Science, Stanford University, well known for his work in seismic imaging, Melanie Kenderdine, Executive Director of the MIT University Energy Initiative, Greg Staple, CEO of the American Clean Skies Foundation andAmy Mall, Senior Program Analyst, Land and Wildlife Programs for National Resources Defense Council.
Join us Wednesday, October 31st, for a lunchtime discussion at the NDN event space located at 729 15th Street on the first floor. Lunch will be served at 12:Noon and the program begins at 12:15pm.
Please RSVP today and feel free to invite others you think might be interested!
