Powering the Economy: A Discussion on Natural Gas, Methane Policy & American Business

Since the release of the EPA’s proposed rules to regulate methane emissions in August, conversations on how to reduce this pollutant at manageable cost to industry have come to the forefront.

Join The Hill on September 29 to consider how policymakers and industry can come together to effectively regulate methane emissions. What steps can industry take to innovate and lead on adopting existing technologies and practices to reduce emissions? With methane leaks in the oil and gas system costing industry $1.8 billion per year in lost revenues, how can new regulations be implemented in a cost effective way that reduces both climate impacts and domestic energy waste? And what impact might implementing these regulations have on investors and the larger American economy?

8:35 AM – Keynote session with EPA Associate Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation, JOE GOFFMAN and Center for Climate & Energy Solutions President, BOB PERCIASEPE in conversation with The Hill’s Editor in Chief, BOB CUSACK

9:00 AM – Sponsor perspective, presented by Environmental Defense Fund, with Colorado Department of Health and Environment’s MARTHA RUDOLPH in conversation with U.S. Department of Energy’s JAMES BRADBURY
