Welcome from the Chair 

David HayesThank you for your interest in the Interagency Working Group on Coordination of Domestic Energy Development and Permitting in Alaska. In forming this group, President Obama recognizes that federal coordination is essential for the safe, responsible, and efficient development of conventional and renewable energy resources in Alaska. Our group will look for ways that federal agencies can better work together to facilitate Alaska energy development while fulfilling our responsibilities to safety and to the environment. 

Whether you are a resident of Alaska, a partner organization, or a Federal employee, we welcome you to learn more about our group, our member agencies, and the projects we impact. Your engagement is crucial to our success as we move forward to a future of safe and responsible energy development in Alaska.
