NASEO 2016 Energy Policy Outlook Conference

Powering Economies: Energy as the Engine for Smart Growth

NASEO’s Energy Policy Outlook Conference is the national forum to connect with and learn from state energy officials working on innovative energy policies and programs, and to engage with federal officials on priority energy issues. On February 9-11, 2016, explore how State and Territory Energy Offices’ efforts are “Powering Economies” and serving as an engine for growth and productivity. NASEO’s 2016 Energy Policy Outlook Conference program will feature experts and strategists from government, business, and advocacy groups focused on sharing new ideas and partnership models that promote energy affordability, infrastructure resilience, clean energy technologies, and economic opportunity. Learn about:

  • Innovative state partnerships that accelerate the transition of technologies from National Labs and universities to the private sector, and attract private-sector venture capital and investment;
  • Cutting-edge state energy policy and regulatory models that are evolving the utility business model and creating more options for modernizing the grid, integrating renewables, and tapping the Internet of Things to drive efficiency and economic value;
  • Practical paths for states to utilize private sector energy efficiency as the cost-effective means to address multi-pollutant air and water quality goals and requirements under the Clean Power Plan and other federal environmental rules;
  • Program options that leverage state, federal and private resources in ways that integrate energy efficiency in housing, transportation, and manufacturing;
  • Simple, low-cost steps states and businesses can take to jointly advance STEM education and important “in demand” energy vocations and workforce development;
  • Initiatives across the building sector, such as integrating building energy labeling efforts, advancing building energy code education, examining zero net energy building programs, and accelerating energy savings performance contracting; and
  • Expert policy analysis and the latest “inside the beltway” look at federal budget, agency, and legislative actions on all energy issues – efficiency, grid, alternative fuels, renewables, transportation, codes – from top federal officials and private experts.
