Event Description

The FTC hosted a conference to explore a range of energy issues of importance to American consumers and the U.S. and global economies. The conference brought together leading experts from the government, the energy industry, consumer groups, and the academic community. These experts participated in panels that will examine such topics as the relationship between market forces and government policy in energy markets; the dependence of the U.S. transportation sector on petroleum; the effects of electric power industry restructuring on competition and consumers; what energy producers and consumers may expect in the way of technological developments in the industry; the security of U.S. energy supplies; and the Government's role in maintaining competition and protecting energy consumers.
