Industry, C-SPAN leaders energize Lugar-Purdue summit

West Lafayette, Ind. -- The chairman and president of BP America Inc. will be part of a blue-ribbon panel being moderated by the head of C-SPAN as part of an energy summit convened by U.S. Sen. Richard G. Lugar and Purdue University.

Joining BP America Inc. chairman and president Robert A. Malone as part of the Aug. 29 panel discussion at the Richard G. Lugar-Purdue Summit on Energy Security will be Amy Myers Jaffe, the Wallace S. Wilson Fellow in Energy Studies at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy of Rice University. Brian Lamb, president and CEO of C-SPAN, will serve as the panel moderator. The summit, which will take place on Purdue's West Lafayette campus, is expected to attract leaders from government, business and academic communities.

Panelists will discuss what would be needed from an industry and policy perspective to implement strategies that would reduce foreign oil dependence.

"Our nation's security and prosperity are tied directly to energy, and Indiana has much to offer in the biofuel and research areas," said Lugar, R-Ind., who is chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "This summit gives us the opportunity to share ideas from a broad spectrum of individuals representing the public and private sectors and help chart our course for the future."

Purdue President Martin C. Jischke, who was recently named to the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, said Purdue has made energy a major subject of research.

"Purdue has worked to create an environment in which energy researchers from all disciplines are collaborating to find and develop alternative energy sources and policies and to make current energy sources cleaner and more efficient," Jischke said. "The research at Purdue is exploring a number of energy alternatives, including biofuels, liquid fuels, clean-coal technologies and others."

Malone serves as BP's chief executive in the United State
