Alternative Energy

Washington DC - Oct 25, 2012

Sustainability is the buzzword across corporate boardrooms and business schools, and the interest in alternative energy has never been more intense. With a field so dependent on policy and government action, and a time of electoral change in major economies around the world, sustainable energy is on the minds of thought leaders everywhere. How will business respond to the challenge of fueling and sustaining growth in the long run? How dependent is the growth of this industry on policy initiatives? How have the economics of energy production and distribution changed as the world recovers from the global economic crisis?

Join a discussion with Chicago Booth alumni and industry professionals in Washington DC who will share their expertise and perspective on the current conditions as well as their views on the future outlook for alternative energy.
