Large Gathering at Mid-Year Forum as Key Energy Officials Discuss Policy Agendas

from EBA

Nearly 500 attendees gathered for EBA’s 2017 Mid-Year Energy Forum on Monday and Tuesday in Washington, DC as they participated in more than a dozen policy discussions and networking sessions. Luminaries included Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chair Neil Chatterjee and FERC Commissioners Cheryl A. LaFleur and Robert F. Powelson as well as numerous former FERC commissioners and a range of federal officials, energy industry executives, energy attorneys and policy experts.

Forum attendees heard Chair Chatterjee discuss the DOE’s NOPR and the important challenges facing FERC under the heightened scrutiny of its regulation and oversight of nation’s energy infrastructure. Key discussions included a roundtable of industry CEOs on how they adjust to changing market conditions, pipeline officials assessing the current regulatory environment, a debate about the future of off-shore wind development in the U.S., an assessment of the Trump Administration’s energy and environmental agenda, and a dialogue about non-cyber threats to the grid.

The highlight of the Forum was its closing dinner as Commissioner Powelson entertained a packed audience in celebrating FERC’s 40th anniversary. He was joined by a host of former FERC commissioners including Norman Bay, Tony Clark, James Hoecker, Colette Honorable, Joseph Kelliher, Marc Spitzer, Branko Terzic and Jon Wellinghoff for the festivities.

Other highlights included a gathering of new EBA members and first-time Forum attendees at the New Member Meetup, a meetup of LGBT attendees and a sold-out gathering of attendees of the second annual Women in Energy Breakfast featuring Kellie Donnelly, Republican deputy chief counsel for the U.S. Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
