Share R & D and America's Energy Outlook

Event Details


Technological innovation and significant public and private sector investment are critical to ensuring that the United States maximizes its capacity for domestic energy production. Recent advancements in a variety of energy technologies, including natural gas extraction, nuclear energy development, coal gasification, and renewable energy production, offer new ways to power our world. Developing a comprehensive energy plan that will strengthen our national security, grow the economy, and protect the environment requires a strategic mix of conventional and alternative energy sources. Join National Journal and The Atlantic as we examine the emerging technologies and development opportunities the United States should pursue in an effort to make the way we work, move, and power our economy more reliable, affordable, and efficient.

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.
