During its upcoming, 3rd Annual Energy Policy Conference Oct. 10, the New Jersey Business & Industry Association (NJBIA) will honor a trio of longtime leaders in the Garden State energy and environment spaces.
Former PSEG Chairman and CEO Ralph Izzo, former Senate President Steve Sweeney, and Sen. Bob Smith, D-17th District, chairman of the Senate Environment and Energy Committee, will be honored at the annual conference – a full-day hybrid event and cocktail reception – at the Pines Manor in Edison, the NJBIA announced Sept. 15.
The event features a top-notch roster of business, industry and thought leaders, stakeholders and others with speeches, panels and a myriad of networking opportunities.
The NJBIA says the event comes at a pivotal time for Garden State businesses and residents as the Murphy administration ratchets up its ambitious goals to decarbonize the state and its economy.
“This event will feature a really complete array of energy and economic experts that will help bring clarity and context to some very timely and important questions,” said NJBIA Deputy Chief of Government Affairs Ray Cantor.
He also stressed that the event would provide ample opportunity to discuss the current state of climate science, the risks of acting and of not acting, as well as upgrades to the energy grid and other potential energy solutions to help the state reduce emissions.
“At the same time, we are thrilled to honor three longtime leaders in the energy and environmental sectors who have truly made a difference for our state,” said Cantor.
