Chambers of Commerce Alliance to Host Energy Summit October 14, 2015

The Chambers of Commerce Alliance of Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties announced today they are hosting an energy event titled “The Future of Energy and the Environment,” scheduled for October 14, 2015 from 8:00-11:30AM at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ventura.

“Energy is an important topic, both to the business community and the members of the public. The Alliance wants to provide an opportunity for greater understanding of our energy needs, and our energy reality, their effects on the environment, and to allow the audience to ask questions”, said Scott Eicher, Chair of the Chambers of Commerce Alliance.

The keynote speaker for the event will be Alex Epstein, a New York Times best-selling author and founder of the Center for Industrial Progress (CIP). Epstein has risen to prominence as the nation’s leading free-market energy debater, promoting a philosophy that is anti-pollution but pro-development. He draws on cutting-edge research and original insights to offer an alternate perspective on the energy debate and shares eye-opening thoughts into how technology will improve the lives of people – safely, cleanly, and effectively – for years to come. He has been called the “most original thinker of the year” by political commentator John McLaughlin.

There will also be a panel discussion featuring representatives from each of the energy sectors, including California Resources Corporation (CRC), Desert Solar, Infinity Wind, and Brightwave Energy. The discussion will focus on the opportunities and challenges each sector faces, along with environmental factors.
