Power companies promote sustainable approach to meeting increasing demands

As global power demand steadily increases, energy companies are trying to address the new demands while taking into account the environmental risks of increased energy production. During today's E&ETV Event Coverage, a World Business Council for Sustainable Design (WBCSD) panel discusses the implications of providing power to a growing population. Representatives from eight major energy companies discuss the newly released report, "Powering a Sustainable Future." The report includes a broad set of recommendations for energy companies and governments to ensure that energy is provided in an environmentally sound, socially responsible and economically viable way. Panelists include Gary Serio of Entergy Corp., Bruno Lescoeur of Electricite de France S.A., and Gail Kendall of China Light and Power.
