The Trump Administration and changing geopolitical situations are redefining energy directions, layering additional change over ongoing technological and market changes. Removal or revision of regulations, withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, and shifting geopolitical relations add complexity to an energy portfolio still bracing for cyberattacks and weather impacts against vulnerable grids. These geopolitical shifts, and the reactions to them by OPEC, local governments, and other actors, challenge us to chart a path forward through changed and dynamic domestic and international energy and environmental sectors.
The 36th USAEE/ IAEE Conference provides a forum for informed and collegial discussion of how the emerging realities will impact all stakeholders - from populations to companies to governments-in North America and around the world.
Nowhere calls out this urgency more clearly than the mid-Atlantic region. The energy mix includes offshore wind, coal mines, nuclear power, solar, and natural gas. Conference attendees will benefit from access to tour some of these facilities as well as tours of federal energy institutions in Washington, D.C.
The Washington, D.C. metro area is the epicenter of energy policy and home to legislators, regulators, and diplomats. It boasts the greatest concentration of think tanks and is a bastion of energy thought leaders that bolster the value of networking opportunities provided by the conference.
The conference will highlight contemporary energy themes at the intersection of economics, public policy, and politics, including those affecting energy infrastructure, environmental regulation, markets vs. government intervention, and international energy trade. Participation from industry, government, non-profit, and academic energy economists ensures robust, insightful discussion.
