How can New York City ensure energy reliability while reducing both the price for ratepayers and greenhouse gas emissions?

To address the critical issue, the Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability will present a panel discussion on Monday, March 19th, 2007, from 8:30-10:30 a.m. at New York University.

The discussion will be moderated by Ashok Gupta, director of the air and energy program of the Natural Resources Defense Council and member of the Mayor’s Sustainability Advisory Board.

Panelists include: Douglas Durst, co-president, The Durst Organization; John Gilbert, chairman of the energy committee, New York Building Congress, and chief operating officer and executive vice president, Rudin Management; Steve Hammer of the Center for Energy, Marine Transportation and Public Policy, Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs; and David Manning, senior vice president of corporate affairs, Keyspan.

The panel presentation - which is free and open to the public - will take place at NYU’s Eisner & Lubin Auditorium, Kimmel Center, 60 Washington Square South, Manhattan.

It is sponsored by the Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability, in cooperation with NYU Wagner, Baruch College, Pratt Institute, The New School, and the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University.
