  • Colonel Luke Leonard, the commander of the  Army Corps of Engineers' Louisville District;
  • Pierre Gauthier, the president and CEO of Alstom, a major hydropower equipment supplier;
  • Marc Gerken, president and CEO of American Municipal Power, which has developed several hydroelectric projects along the Ohio River;
