Summaries

Summary Sentence: Atlanta is the seventh public stakeholder meeting for the 2nd installment of the QER, and the last of six regional meetings.

Full Summary: The energy landscape in the United States is undergoing fundamental and historic change, driven by increased domestic production of oil and gas, the growth of renewable electricity generation, improvements in energy efficiency across sectors, growing interdependence among system, and the introduction of a host of new services and technologies. The U.S. Energy landscape is also being shaped by Federal, State, and local policies that accelerate these changes, such as state renewable energy and efficiency goals, and carbon emissions reductions required by the Clean Power Plan and state efforts like California's AB32 and the Northeast's Regional Greenhouse Initiative. Secretary Ernest Moniz will participate in this public stakeholder meeting for the 2nd installment of the (QER), an integrated study of the U.S. electricity system. The Secretary will provide opening remarks, followed by remarks from Josh Cohen, Deputy Administrator of the Rural Utilities Service, and Dr. Tim Lieuwen, Professor and Executive Director Strategic Energy Institute.
