Macaulay on World Energy

September 30, 2009 | CUNY Lecture Series, William Macaulay Honors College at CUNY

William E. Macaulay believes the Obama administration’s focus on alternative energy, including solar and wind, should be expanded to other energy sources. “The Bush administration was oil,” he said, but the Obama administration has “not paid attention to nuclear, and they haven’t really pushed natural gas.” Macaulay is the chairman, chief executive officer, and a managing director of First Reserve Corporation, a private equity firm focusing on the energy industry, which he joined in 1983. He is also a graduate of City College and the benefactor of the Macaulay Honors College at CUNY, which hosted his lecture, “World Energy: Current Outlook, Future Possibilities.”
