The National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) is thrilled to welcome you to Washington, D.C. for the 2016 Energy Policy Outlook Conference. The 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. We have planned informative sessions featuring experts and strategists from government, business, and advocacy groups who will share new ideas and partnership models that promote energy affordability, infrastructure resilience, clean energy technologies, and economic opportunity. Some major highlights from our conference agenda include:

  • Keynotes from Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz; Administrator Gina McCarthy of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); and Former U.S. trade ambassador and Dallas mayor Ron Kirk;
  • Roundtable discussion on the future of energy efficiency;
  • Insights from industry experts and policy leaders on the outlook for energy policy and markets in the year ahead; and
  • Dynamic discussions on EPA’s Clean Power Plan and how state agencies are working together to overcome barriers and creating new opportunities for compliance.

NASEO would especially like to thank the conference sponsors for their support and valuable input into the conference agenda and design. We are grateful to the Edison Electric Institute, our Gold-level sponsor, our Silver-level sponsor the Diesel Technology Forum, and Nest, our Bronze-level sponsor.  Finally, we encourage you to visit the conference exhibitors and talk to their expert staff over the course of the meeting.
