Big Energy Map Conference: Opening Remarks

On April 29, 2009, the Center for a New American Security brought together over 80 leading experts in the energy and defense industries to discuss energy security in the context of U.S. national security.

The off-the-record event (except for the taped opening remarks) was designed to provide recommendations for how President Obama can implement his energy security goals by fostering communication and collaboration among the key players in energy policy and implementation, from both the private and public sectors.
