Share Powering the City

Event Details


Overtaxed power grids, high electric bills, and air quality concerns are bringing energy issues to the forefront of municipal agendas. Investment in efficiency, energy management, and new technologies is needed, but state and federal budgets face funding challenges. As local officials rethink urban energy use for a new century, they have to grapple with the high upfront costs of retrofitting buildings both public and private. At the same time, new technologies and business models offer urban dwellers fresh options for meeting their energy needs.  The Atlantic and National Journal will convene a panel of key voices from the nation’s cities and leading industries to discuss strategies for reducing energy consumption, increasing efficiency and powering the cities of the future.

National Journal & The Atlantic at 2012 Conventions

The 2012 Democratic and Republican Conventions provide a rare opportunity both to connect with the country’s leadership ranks and to participate in one of the nation’s most cherished traditions. These spirited gatherings are equal parts policy, politics, and celebration and attract the power centers of each party, including state, local, and federal officials, senior party leadership, national media, and business leaders.

From breaking news and probing analysis of Washington policy and politics to thoughtful reconnaissance on the big ideas shaping the national conversation, National Journal and The Atlantic will provide a panoramic perspective on the world of American policy and politics during this pivotal election year.
