WASHINGTON, DC – On Monday, August 11, Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz will attend a public meeting in Santa Fe, NM hosted by the Energy Department's Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis 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 Santa Fe meeting will examine state, local and tribal energy issues. The meeting will include panel discussions on jurisdictional issues and policy and regulatory priorities related to electricity transmission, storage and distribution and oil and natural gas infrastructure, as well as vulnerabilities and desirable characteristics of the future energy system. 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.
