The National Council on Electricity Policy is pleased to offer all state energy policy makers the opportunity to hear from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) about DOE’s Congressional & Intergovernmental Affairs program and its new Regional Specialists initiative. Speakers will include Aimee Witteman, DOE Deputy Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs, and DOE Regional Specialists Christian Bato, Torend Collins, Rose Stephens-Booker, and Spencer Thibodeau. In their roles, the specialists will be responsible for building strong relationships with state energy officials, municipal officials, tribes, regional associations, and other external stakeholders to advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s climate and clean energy goals. They also will serve as an important conduit between DOE, its programs and resources, and states and local communities. You’ll have a chance to learn more about the initiative, meet the specialists, and share with the team your state’s priorities.
The November 29 Kick-Off Webinar will be followed by Regional Listening Sessions where state officials can learn more about plans for their region and engage in conversation with the region’s Regional Specialist.
