Keynote & Panelist Presentations Now Online
On June 30, 2014, The New England Council and The New Hampshire Institute of Politics hosted a Regional Energy Forum on New England’s Energy Challenges. The forum was be held at The New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH.
The New England region faces a unique set of energy challenges, from high electricity prices, to a lack of native energy resources, to insufficient pipeline and transmission infrastructure. As public and private stakeholders in New England work to address these challenges, the forum brought together key leaders from throughout the region for an interactive conversation about the short-term and long-term solutions to meet the region’s energy needs.
Gordon Van Welie, President & CEO of ISO New England, delivered keynote remarks providing an overview of the region’s current energy situation and the challenges the New England states face in the coming months and years. Following van Welie’s remarks, a panel of senior energy officials from four of the six New England states discussed the short-term and long-term solutions to these challenges.
