Department of Energy Announces Quadrennial Energy Review Public Meeting in Cheyenne

August 20, 2014 - 12:40pm


WASHINGTON, DC – The Energy Department’s Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis will host a public meeting in Cheyenne, WY, on Thursday, August 21, to receive stakeholder input to the Quadrennial Energy Review (QER), an administration-wide effort to make recommendations regarding key infrastructure needed for transmission, storage and distribution of energy.

The Cheyenne meeting will examine infrastructure siting. The meeting will include panel discussions on permitting and siting issues, including electricity transmission and oil and gas infrastructure, as well as data needs, mitigation methods, and tools needed for siting and permitting. Following panel discussions, the public will have an opportunity to make statements.

The QER, officially launched by President Obama in January, is co-chaired by the White House Domestic Policy Council and Office of Science and Technology Policy, and includes representation from all relevant executive departments and agencies. DOE is playing a key role in development of the QER by providing policy analysis and modeling, and coordinating stakeholder engagement.

Additional information, including the agenda and a full list of the speakers for each panel, is available HERE.
