WASHINGTON, DC – The Energy Department’s Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis will host a public meeting in Portland, OR, on Friday, July 11, 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 Portland meeting will examine electricity transmission, storage, and distribution in the Western U.S. The meeting will include panel discussions on building and operating the appropriate amount of transmission for future needs, coping with new challenges and opportunities, and electricity storage. 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.
