President of U.S. Chamber’s Energy Institute to Announce Plan for Securing America’s Energy Future in Fort Collins on Sept. 30


General James Jones, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy next Tuesday, Sept. 30 will unveil "A Blueprint for Securing America’s Energy Future" at 1:30 p.m. MDT in Fort Collins, Colo., at the Lincoln Center, Canyon West Room, 417 W. Magnolia St.


On Tuesday, Jones will unveil a comprehensive energy blueprint with more than 75 policy recommendations for the next President and Congress aimed at unleashing the real and unique power of America’s resources and innovation to solve our energy and environmental challenges.  U.S. Senator Wayne Allard, U.S. Senator Ken Salazar, and Colorado State University President Larry Edward Penley are also expected to deliver remarks.

Jones is expected to highlight the challenge America faces to marshal the best resources in the business community, government and academia through innovative partnerships – like those taking place in Colorado – to create long-term energy solutions.  The U.S. Chamber’s Institute for 21st Century Energy believes that America has a historic opportunity to demonstrate global leadership, create new American industries and jobs, and secure the American dream for our children and grandchildren.

Jones is in Fort Collins to spotlight northern Colorado’s – and Colorado State University’s – reputation for technological innovation in clean and renewable energy solutions. Colorado State University and the Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce are co-hosting the U.S. Chamber for the event.
