Critical Power

Thursday January 2004

Participants: Al Martinez-Fonts, Special Assistant to the Secretary for the Private Sector (Morning Welcoming Address), Bob Liscouski, Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security (Luncheon Keynote Speaker), Peter Huber, Mark Mills, et al.

The Manhattan Institute is pleased to co-sponsor the First Annual Forbes Forum on Critical Power, which has been developed specifically to address the issues and opportunities regarding our increasing reliance on a decreasingly reliable power source. The solutions are as complex as the issues themselves—a serpentine maze of policy, regulation, technology, security and the environment. Regardless of the causes, if your business or operation relies on electricity—and whose doesn’t?—or if you are dependent on infrastructure that itself depends on electricity, you are, and always will be, affected by the outcome.
