Duke Energy Executives-in-Residence Program
"Leadership in Sustainability"

The Office of the Provost and the Carolina Leadership Initiative are coordinating a Duke Energy Executives-in-Residence program around the theme of “Leadership in Sustainability” that will bring six of Duke’s top executives to campus this academic year. Each executive will be hosted by a college whose academic offerings match the visiting executive’s background and experience, and each will deliver a public lecture at the end of their day in residence.

The next Duke Energy executive-in-residence and the date he will visit are:

John L. Stowell, Vice President of Energy and Environmental Policy
Tuesday, February 7, 2012
  • Speaker Bio
  • Host: School of Law
  • Public Presentation: 12:40 p.m., Law School Auditorium
  • Title: Communicating Climate Change: Politics, Passion and a Dash of Science
  • Description: Warming? Cooling? Staying the same? These are just some of the questions at the heart of the debate around global climate change. Whether you believe in recent reports that we're heading for another ice age or that Florida will be under water in the decades to come — the conversation between politicians, academics, and scientists around global climate change is as hot as ever.

    John Stowell, vice president of energy and environmental policy at Duke Energy, is in the middle of this important debate and will speak to the company's role in the energy policy debate and the impacts of regulations on the company's operations. He'll also discuss how this polarizing issue has divided the American people and what that might mean. Duke Energy is in the midst of one of the company's largest capital investment campaigns, driven largely by ever-increasing environmental regulations. As customers face rising electric costs, shaping the rules has never been more important.
