The election results are in: President Obama has secured a second term, Democrats maintain control of the Senate, and Republicans keep the House. Join at the National Press Club as some of the leading energy and government experts share their ideas, expectations and predictions for U.S. energy policy for 2013 and beyond. These panelists will offer insights into how the winners of the 2012 elections will and should approach energy and national security, climate and the environment, the economy, and other emerging issues.
