The panelists included Greg Gershuny, executive director of the Energy and Environment Program, Aspen Institute; Kate Konschnik, director of the Climate and Energy Program at the Duke Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions; and Brian Murray, director of the Duke University Energy Initiative. The discussion was moderated by Kristi Swartz, a reporter at E&E News based in Atlanta.
