The notion of shared responsibility and balanced participation shaped the
Energy and Transportation Task Force's activities and helped ensure the
quality and credibility of its recommendations. To reflect and reinforce
this balanced approach, the Task Force's work was funded by a combination
of government, private sector, foundation, and individual sources.
Consistent with the Council's goal to spend private sector funds in the
private sector, private contributions to support the Sustainable Energy
and Transportation Scenarios Project were administered through the Open
Space Institute, a non-profit organization, by agreement with the
Council. The Open Space Institute, a non-profit organization, by
agreement with the Council. The Open Space Institute contracted with The
Global Business Network to manage the scenarios project. This method
permitted maximum flexibility and efficiency.
In addition to the tireless efforts of the participants and their
generous contributions of time and energy, the Task Force's work would
not have been possible without the financial support of those who made
contributions directly to the Council and to the Open Space Institute. In
addition to significant support from the Department of Energy, the Open
Space Institute reported the following contributors.
|American Electric Power||Enron Corporation|
|Anonymous||General Motors Corporation|
|Chevron Corporation||Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation|
|The Energy Foundation||Pacific Gas & Electric Company|
