U.S. Energy Policy: The Hill's Thought-Leader Dinner Series
On June 16, The Hill convened an exclusive thought-leader dinner to explore U.S. energy policy with a focus on building a stable and secure 21st Century electrical grid. By plugging into an electrical grid that was primarily developed and built in the last century, are we hampering efforts to develop a cohesive energy strategy for the future? How do the energy and utility industries work with policy makers to modernize the grid Americans rely on every day? How can Washington help meet the expectation that technological innovations work with the flip of a switch?
Featured guests included Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), and thought-leaders from industry and academia, as well as members of the media. The Hill's Editor in Chief Hugo Gurdon hosted the on-the-record conversation, and PG&E sponsored the event.
