Impact of Energy Renaissance on U.S. Manufacturing

November 29, 2012

The renaissance in U.S. energy production in recent years, especially in natural gas, provides a strong wind at the back of the U.S. manufacturing sector. Citigroup estimates that 1.1 million jobs will be created in manufacturing due to their competitive edge by 2020. Is this wave sustainable, both economically and environmentally? What are the sectors most likely to benefit? Are we being too optimistic about the economic impact? How do we balance the economic and energy security with other concerns? To explore these and other questions, join us as a panel of distinguished experts present the findings of their new reports on this topic and generally explore the implications of the energy renaissance on U.S. manufacturing over the next decade. Presentations followed by an audience participation Q&A session.
