These remarks will be followed by a 90-minute panel discussion on alternative energy solutions. Panelists will include: Andy Hargadon, Director, Energy Efficiency Center, UC Davis (moderator); Sally Benson, Executive Director, Global Climate Energy Project, Stanford University; Paul Alivisatos, Associate Laboratory Director for Physical Sciences, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory; Doug Rotman Program Leader, Earth Sciences and Engineering, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; Blake Simmons, Manager, Energy Systems Department, Sandia National Laboratory; Roy Kuga, Vice President, Energy and Supply, PG&E; David Pearce, President and CEO, Miasolé.

This event will take place on July 19, 2007, with the program starting at 9:30 am and concluding by noon.
