Shell Oil’s David Sexton to Discuss Energy and Environmental Policy at Heavy Duty Dialogue 2009

Sexton will speak about the global energy challenge and how the current economic environment is affecting short-and long-term energy supply and demand.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – David Sexton, president of Shell Oil Products U.S., has been added to the lineup of speakers for Heavy Duty Dialogue ’09. Sexton will speak about the global energy challenge and how the current economic environment is affecting short-and long-term energy supply and demand. He will outline the key priorities for national and global policies that balance accessibility, affordability and acceptability of energy, the need for CO2 regulation and technology to move forward hand-in-hand and the growing potential for low-CO2 fuels that can be applied in the heavy duty market.

“We have to turn our perspective around and think sustainability as strategy," said Sexton. “Our challenge is how to create more energy with less carbon dioxide – in an economically viable way.”

The conference program for Heavy Duty Dialogue ’09 also includes a legislative and regulatory discussion, a CEO panel on mega trends and strategy, an industry forecast defining the near and long term future for the industry, a high-level presentation on U.S. energy policy, economic and environmental sustainability and a discussion around the “developing storm” of a generationally diverse workforce.

Heavy Duty Dialogue ’09 will be held at the Rosen Centre Hotel and the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., on Monday, Feb. 16, 2009. HDD’09 immediately precedes Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week ’09. More details are available at www.hdma.org.
