Event Details

The purpose of this forum is to educate citizens about United States' energy policy, regulation, economics, and infrastructure so that they are better equipped to understand and evaluate proposed energy and environmental policies and legislation.  Specifically, the forum will address emerging Virginia energy / environmental issues including the need for additional generation capacity, offshore wind projects, SMART metering, and similar topics. 

The forum will be divided into three segments.

  • Overview: Energy Sources, Infrastructure, Demand, and Supply
  • Generation: Regulation, Economics, and Environmental Impact
  • Virginia Specific Issues: Uranium Mining, Wind Farms, Smart Metering

Each segment will be preceded by a topical overview,  followed by a question and answer period.
