Energy policy spans sectors from
  resource extraction, generation and distribution, and research &
  development of energy production and storage. In recent years, policy
  discussions have become even more complex as innovation and economic trends
  have introduced new variables. For example: enhanced oil and gas recovery
  methods; renewables such as solar, wind, and biofuels; readiness of
  continent-wide grids to handle centralized versus local production and
  storage; cybersecurity of distribution; public opinions on carbon and
  nuclear.

 

 

  This panel will discuss their thoughts on how energy policy may be considered
  starting in 2017 given the new Administration and Congressional session,
  followed by Q&A with the audience. Lunch served on location; livestream
  information below.
