September 10, 2008 – No matter who wins the White House in November, the next President of the United States will make energy policy a top priority for the new Administration. At the top of the energy agenda are tough questions about electricity, including generation, transmission, price, supply and restructuring issues.

The Technology Policy Institute is hosting a conference to discuss this country’s energy future, highlighted by a preview of the next Administration’s policy options from Douglas Holtz-Eakin representing the McCain campaign and Jason Grumet representing the Obama campaign.
